AND WE’RE BACK!
Hope that you have all had a great Easter and enjoyed the recent sun (snow and sleet) and haven’t missed GGs too much on our fortnight break!
We will be back at the Red Squirrel on Monday evening for a classic Granny Greens general craft drop-in. As with every Monday, drop in at any time between 6pm and 8pm and bring along a current project (or one you’d like some advice on starting) and join us for a drink and chat.
For any newbies, welcome! Everyone is invited and there’s no pressure to come every week (though we’d be delighted to see you if you’d like to become a regular!) and you can pop in at any point through the evening. Granny Greens is a free night out, with occasional cost-price fees to cover the costs of materials for workshops. We have a programme of events which includes all sorts of crafting workshops, discussions on books and social media usage and occasional outings. Every week is also a drop-in however, so even if there is a workshop on you are very welcome to bring along your own thing – or just come along for the banter.
Without further ado, here’s the plan for the next couple of months:
16th Craft drop-in
23rd Workshop – How To Make… a Springtastic fabric flower corsage
30th Craft drop-in
7th Craft drop-in
13th-20th Voluntary Arts Week – as last year, we’ll be participating in Voluntary Arts Scotland’s awareness week to highlight all that’s going on with voluntary arts groups in the area. This year the plan is to host window displays around the city showcasing what each group gets up to. Granny Green’s are going to have a window at Central Hall, Tollcross, and we’d love contributions of work from all of you to display in the window and show everybody the type of thing we get up to at Granny Greens. Chat to Deborah, Fiona, Andrea or Anneleen if you’d be up for taking part. We’d really love to get a good variety of different crafts and crafters involved so have a think about what you might like to contribute.
and on the 14th we are going to have a little opening to celebrate our exhibition – details to follow on that!
21st Book Group – discussion of Revolutionary Road (ask Fiona for your copy to read in advance)
28th Craft drop-in (& please return any copies of Revolutionary Road)
4th A Bank Holiday week off, officially, though please feel free to meet up at the Red Squirrel if you want!
11th Bag-making workshop
18th Social Justice crafting opportunities discussion – we’ll be inviting people from various organisations and groups who use craft to campaign, raise awareness or give practical help to come and chat to us about what they do and how you can get involved.
25th End of term festivities
Looking forward to seeing you all on Monday!
