Our meeting on the 8 June was last before our exhibition at Bowes Museum, where members brought along their glass fro exhibit. The formal part of the meeting took place and then we stopped for lunch, which was bountiful as normal.
Sandra had brought a LOT of glass that had been given to the branch, members chose pieces and gave a donation to branch funds.
We all looked at the glass for the exhibition and some engraving took place.
This October the branch will be celebrating 30 years as a branch. We have arranged a booklet with photos of groups at meetings that cover most years, plus examples of members work. The booklet will be given out at the Christmas meeting.
Our next meetings are:
20/21 August - Weekend tutorial - Design and engraving
10 December - Christmas Meeting - Design competition - lettering with a Christmas theme
We always welcome visitors to our branch meetings, which are usually held in Patrick Brompton Church Hall, Nr Bedale from 11.00 - 4pm.
