Hello reader

Toss n Tell this Saturday

Hope you have all had a great month. Toss n Tell is just around the corner and this month we are having a hands on felting challenge:

Reduce Reuse Recycle – Single Use Plastic in Felting

Felting without plastic? Is this possible?
Plastic sheets, bags, bubble wrap, resist material, drawer liners, spray bottles….. we rely on a variety of forms of plastic in our felting process. How can we change this? Come along and join in an interactive session to share ideas and try out a variety of alternatives to felting without plastic. All materials supplied.

We will commence our Marks Over Time sessions this Toss n Tell with a discussion about our theme. Indeed, why do we have a theme? Isn’t that just a topic?
Are you stuck with the meaning of our theme? What is a "mark"? And what has it got to do with time! We will discover this together.

Come along and find out.

Plus any other questions, ideas or clarifications you may have.
Every session will be published on the web site under Members - Marks Over Time. The top half of the page has the latest info about the procedures of the Exhibition and if you scroll down you'll find the Toss n Tell sessions.

All welcome for the hands on fun. Plus a bit of chit chat.
