Looking at Buildings

Posted by Sian Lile-Pastore on 16 September 2011

On Wednesday Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Evan James took part in the art activity that I offer to schools called 'Looking at Buildings'.

The pupils have a look at the buildings in the museum and make sketches of them, before returning to the activity space to create a 3d model. Here are some pictures of the wonderful work made.

If your school would like to take part in something similar, have a look here for more details.

Quilt Club

Posted by Sian Lile-Pastore on 16 September 2011

I love quilt club, I really do. And if any of you would like to come along then I'm sure you will love it too!

It's a friendly, informal group and we get together and sew quilts! Quilter, and all round wonderful person Samantha Jenkins is on hand to help out if you get stuck or to help you get started if you have never quilted before. We meet every two months on a saturday morning at 11am until 12.30pm, the next meeting is on November 5th and is open to all - but please book your place by phoning 029 2057 3424.

Here are some pictures from recent meetings... I know there are more somewhere in the depths of my computer, so I'll have a hunt for those too.
