First Date...Saturday January 15th

Today was our first official gathering as a collective! Not everyone who wanted to make it could so sadly there were a few faces missing but we still had a fantastic turnout. With brews and biscuits in hand we spent the first part of our session chatting about our individual art & craft projects/businesses and then discussed future plans for the group, in particular our upcoming craft fair on February 6th (much more about this to come).
This moved us nicely onto our practical session run by Charlotte, who introduced us to the delights of fused plastic. Everyone mucked in with enthusiasm and we soon became a slick production team creating some very stylish bunting to use as decoration at our next craft fair. It proved a popular technique and we all left with a new-found love of used carrier bags and their potential beauty...   

Our next gathering will be at our second Art & Craft Fair on February 6th.
Hope to see you there too!
