September Clay Day
Our September clayday with Clare Mcknight was, as always, a jolly and convivial gathering. Clare demonstrated her Christmas Heart tree decorations and tea light holders.
It was so lovely to see the innovative ideas members brought to their creations. That is always the joy of claydays – the originality of the response to the work demonstrated. So we had everything from traditional Christmas to very subtle designs and utter bling! All were fabulous. Thank you Clare for your friendly demo plus delicious recipe.
The Show and Tell table also held some treats for us all so please take a look at Bridget’s photos. It was very difficult to have to inform you of the problems we are having due to the massive hike in prices at Greenside and hope that we can overcome this. It is a very convenient location but we are looking at other possibilities. Obviously we need somewhere which has reasonable transport links and parking – not always an easy combination. Members have expressed real sadness that we might have to curtail our activities as most of us love the friendly atmosphere of LPCG meetings, together with the inspirational sharing of ideas.
Your steering group will be meeting on October 21 st and some difficult decisions have to be made regarding the future. Suggestions made include, moving venue, possibly meeting on Saturdays, meeting less often – perhaps quarterly, raising the cost etc…… If you have any suggestions please let one of us know. I would be happy for you to email me on email@example.com if you have an inspired idea.
We are booked at Greenside for November 24 th and January 26 th so watch this space for news about these days.
