Icing Butterfly March 2017

Smisby's  March craft  morning was taken by Sheila Heap, one of our many talented members .

As you can see we made these very delicate butterflies (and a cat crept in ) out of very fine mesh

and royal icing.

Every butterfly was decorated beautifully and all different,  some I fear flew into the bin but most

of us made an attempt to come up with something resembling a butterfly.

Kanasi February 2017

Thursday's craft morning at the village hall was a very lively time as some members were finishing off their Victorian Etui boxes, whilst others were learning how to make Kanzasi flower out of material.

 

We did succeed as you can see from the photograph and everyone was very pleased with the end results.

 

Everyone enjoyed the good company and the super home made cakes supplied by Lynne, Lorna, and Margaret, with Muriel volunteering for tea duty. Thankyou. Thanks to Lynne  and Anne our tutors  for being very patient with us.

Taster Print making 

 

The craft morning taken by Marie was very different, as we had to use our imagination to make these beautiful images by drawing on polystyrene, covering it with paint, and pressing it on to paper.
As you can see we do have some very talented ladies as we all managed to make something to take home. Thanks Marie a great morning enjoyed by all.

 
Beaded Crystal bauble October 2016

Another very successful craft morning was spent in making Christmas baubles.


Jacqui Walker one of our members showed nineteen ladies how to make these beautiful tree heart shaped decorations. Everyone had a great time and were able to take a lovely item home ready for the Christmas tree. Some members designes are shown below.

Ater the April 2016 trip to Birmingham to see a button making factory, members enjoyed producing the button bracelets during the May Craft session. This workshop was run by Angela Henney, who provided a wide selection of buttons. Some of the bracelets made by members are shown in the photo.
