January 2018

Many of us have met twice this year already. Many Thanks are due to Jen for hosting the ‘before 12th night’ Guild lunch. We had a lovely time and besides the great food Jen’s Christmas Tree was an unexpected treat with its unique decorations.

The January meeting was well attended. There was quite a bit of ‘arranging’ related to our various invitations during the year to demonstrate our skills and exhibit items at events.

We had our own ‘show and tell’ of completed items and textile related Christmas presents which as always spans a wide range and is always fascinating.

We also had home made cake during a brief interval in proceedings.  Anne gave a brief introduction to the Japanese Art of Kumihimo (the making of braids) accompanied by a boxful of wonderful examples. There is an opportunity to attend a workshop about this at Maker’s Month. Diss Guild has workshops on Tuesday afternoon (March 27th).

Just some of Anne’s braids.

The five Norfolk Guilds will be at the Forum from 26 March to 31st March, each day there will be demonstrations and bookable workshops. This is part of Maker’s Month at the Forum Norwich which has a vast number of different activities  on offer between 12th March and April 6th. Do look at their website.
