We’re always super prepared for any eventuality and so when Duncan Barrett unfortunately had to cancel at the last-minute the Committee jumped to attention and decided we’d do an activitiy we’ve been meaning to do for sometime – bunting making! So we bought all the necessary equipment and fabrics and pulled together a craft evening for our members. After all it’s what the WI is all about – bunting and of course CAKE! We’re hoping Duncan will come to visit us early in the New Year.
It’s that time of year when we’ll be making our poppy wreaths to lay in Nunhead Cemetery on Remembrance Sunday. We’re very excited because Shannon from Mockingbird Makes will return again to teach us how to make felt poppies this year.
After our attempt last year to make crochet poppies we’re hoping this year our poppies will be fit for purpose. If you love craft and love felt this is the meeting for you. Wouldn’t it be pretty special to wear you’re own handcrafted poppy this Remembrance Sunday? More details nearer the time.
How fortunate are we to have a another amazing activity set to take place this November at our WI?
Time to get your aprons on ladies and welcome John Holland our local Baker on Board.
John has been baking for a few years, building up a strong repertoire of go-to cakes and treats that people have enjoyed quite a lot for birthdays, weddings and all sorts of other occasions. He currently works full-time, so this is a hobby (at the moment) but he’s getting more commissions for bespoke bakes. John hopes that one day, he’ll be able to make baking his career.
John said to get ready Nunhead WI for Festive Fondant Fun session, running through some super quick but effective decorating tips for cakes and biscuits in the run up to Christmas, achievable with what you have in the home kitchen, not necessarily one equipped with a ton of sugarcraft kit…
We love Christmas at Nunhead WI and we also love a good party. So we’d be so pleased if you could join us for our Christmas party 2018 at the Old Nun’s Head. Our Christmas Quiz, staring our very own resident Quiz Master Loraine, is always popular and our Christmas raffle is stuffed full of great prizes. Delicious nibbles will be provided for your enjoyment. More details will be available nearer the time. Put the date in your diary for what should be an amazing evening of fun and frolics.
