The Northern Branch will be holding an exhibition at Bowes Museum, Co Durham from Saturday 30 July - Sunday 30 October 2016. There will be 2 Have a go sessions and demos at the weekend.
At our meeting on the 16 April was our AGM. The formal part of the meeting took place and then we stopped for lunch, which was bountiful as normal. Members brought glass along for the exhibition and Sandra brought drills for members to use. Dawn set up the portable drill and members were able to have a go. She also bought along designs and small cuts of flashed glass for engraving on to. Brian gave Dawn some assistance to set up the copper wheels. Other members used the new drills to engrave some of the designs Dawn had brought in. Junko brought in a scent bottle that she had a problem with and what she had done to overcome the problem. The meeting closed at 4pm after a very interesting and enjoyable day.
Our next meetings are:
18 June - Review of exhibition entries
20/21 August - Weekend tutorial
We always welcome visitors to our branch meetings, which are usually held in Patrick Brompton Church Hall, Nr Bedale from 11.00 - 4pm.
