Work Night 17 April

Tonight the theme ‘A Social Event’ continued with members volunteering to sit for the rest of the class. It was probably the quietest work night I have ever attended, everyone was so intense, concentrating on the subject!

Special thanks to David, Colin and Ellie for sitting, hope you don’t ache too much tomorrow!

 PS: If any members would like to send in their sketches from the evening to display here, please email to Karen  Thanks!

Work Night 10 April

Tonight’s work night at Trimpley Village Hall, based around this month’s theme of ‘A Social Event’ was well attended. A table was set-up with a bottle of champagne (full, I might add!) champagne flutes and streamers, for those who wanted to draw them. However, as is the usual format of the evening, some members already had their own ideas and had started drawings and paintings.

I decided to jot down a few possible ideas along the theme, which actually ended up a huge long list!

The main ingredients though, would be;

  • People (what ages?),
  • Celebrations, (wedding, birthday party etc)
  • Sporting Events (football, bowling, darts etc)
  • Venues (Hall, hotel, garden etc)

So just a few ideas to get you started! Why not come along to the work night next Thursday and join the fun.  Hope to see you there!
