I shall be having a little blogging holiday for a couple of weeks whilst I plan the year ahead.
If you (or anyone you know) would like to learn Quilling though I will be running a workshop at Yandles, Martock on Saturday 30th January from 10 until 12.30pm showing you all the basic shapes which you will learn and then make a couple of cards to practice them too.
Cost is £15 for all materials, use of any equipment and light refreshments.
Call Yandles Hobby Shop on 01935 822571 to book - I will follow on with a Spring Quilling workshop, then a Butterflies workshop in February and March too.
Yesterday - the worst day of the holiday weather wise - we had a day out at Longleat to visit the Chinese Festival of Light. We made a day of it, getting rather damp in the process, visiting lots of animals and then the lights when it was dark, it's really worth a visit.
Unfortunately my ice skating excursion there with my Godson got cancelled due to the weather but we still filled the day. Here are a couple of pictures as a taster:
The pagoda temple is made using 80,000 ceramic pieces (cups, bowls, plates and spoons) and is 52 feet high - very impressive!
Happy New Year and see you soon.
