our talks and workshops: 2019 programme

ALL MEETINGS TAKE PLACE AT FOULDEN VILLAGE HALL, WHICH IS OPEN FROM 1PM UNLESS OTHERWISE INDICATED. TALKS START AT 2PM PROMPT.

Meetings take place on the second Saturday of the month unless otherwise specified.

We are able to keep subscription costs low partly thanks to the great support the sales table receives. Textile-related contributions are always welcome.

Spreading the workload is vital to the smooth running of the group so please sign up to help when you can. Volunteers are always needed for teas, tables and chairs, and to assist our speaker. If everyone takes a turn you should only have to do it once a year.

Many thanks to programme secretary Alyson Farmer for putting together such an interesting line-up.

ENROLMENT

Subs are £25 for the year. You can enrol at any time during the year with an appropriate reduction.
With the exception of the January meeting, workshops are extra (members have priority and places may be limited).
There is a Data Protection notice on the enrolment form which will require you to opt in to receiving updates and information from the group if you wish to do so.
As well as paying by cash or cheque there is now the opportunity to pay by BACS. Bank details are available with the enrolment form and if you do use this method of payment please  email bordertextilegroup@gmail.com to let us know that you have done so.

SATURDAY JUNE 8

From 10am-1pm there is another chance to get to grips with drawing led by our chairperson Theresa Wilkinson. There is no need to sign up for this workshop – just come along with pencils and paper. There is a small charge to cover our extra use of the hall.

2pm: Terri Jones and Norma Hopkins who together are called Connect 2, Two Artists, Two Journeys. A comparison of the work and working practices of two very different textile artists illustrated with slides and numerous examples of design development and finished pieces.
