The Little Vintage Hall Workshop - Last Sunday!
On a very wet and blustery day, the very first workshop in our new theme of The Little Vintage Hall kicked off at Thame Girlguiding HQ. Due to severe gales and torrential rain, we had been told that damage had been done to the roof, and to expect buckets and bowls catching the drips in the kitchen area. So it was with some trepidation that we arrived to prepare for the workshop....but all was well and the drips were contained.
Everyone enthusiastically launched into the project, working at their own pace and getting their hands very dirty!
With newly learnt skills and techniques of cardboard floorboards, aging walls etc.....participants produced some impressive halls that looked like they had been around for decades! Then at the end, everyone could take their projects, with the remainder of their kits and instructions to complete at home in their own time.
Do let us have photos of your completed projects ladies - we would love to see them!
As always, we created a little sales table with various miniatures to look at and buy, and used some of our own period memorabilia to provide a backdrop.
And finally.......we are pleased to announce that a wonderful £34.25 has been raised from the Breast Cancer Campaign Raffle & refreshments. Thank you ladies as always, for your wonderful generosity!
OUR NEXT WORKSHOP....
Our next workshop and second project in this theme will take place on September 9th. Booking has now opened and spaces are already being snapped up quickly for...
