This week at the shed we start with our regular social walk at 8.15am, meeting at Tickle Park at 8.15 and followed with a chat and coffee. Register your interest on the website and we can let you know if there is a last minute cancellation due to the weather :-)
Last week was the first week of our Monday morning Pilates with Narelle. Narelle was recommended to us by some of our members and we were all very impressed with the class - join us from 9am at the Research Street Community Centre. Narelle is focusing on getting us familiar with the basics of Pilates so we do the exercises correctly - it was fun, relaxing and effective all at the same time :-)
Talking of relaxing, we all floated out of the Monday meditation group with Simone last week. It's a great time to set your intentions and refresh yourself ready for week ahead. Join us from 6.30pm to try it for yourself.
Tuesday was the first of our Eco Dye workshops - it was fantastic to see the variety of methods and materials combined with each individual's approach. There were lots of different outcomes, with some surprises and some disappointments, and it was a great chance to experiment and see what happens. Margaret and Liz provided a handout of useful info and we left with the knowledge to try our own concoctions at home, working with plants from our gardens. The second of the workshops is coming up on Tuesday and is sold out - but we can't wait to see what they come out with.
Join us on Thursday for Simone's Gentle Yoga from 9, with coffee and the president's drop in immediately after at 10am.
Then, on Saturday 15th we have our members update - come along and find out what's been going on behind the scenes, and find out what activities are coming up. The session starts at 10am with a chance to grab a cuppa and have a chat, then at 10.30 Pam from the 'Sheddie Villagers' will be letting us know what they have been up to (we are still waiting for the official name for this collaboration with Peregian Veggie Village...)Then it's the president's update, followed by another guest speaker and member, Martine who will be doing a brief overview on financial planning for women. We want to know if there are any specific subjects you would like her to cover in future sessions. Martine will be followed by more time for having a chat and a cuppa which is where all the best questions get asked ;-) We will be asking you for your input on a few different subjects including the timing of the new drawing group and iPhone photography group. We will also have a PC there if you have any questions about the booking system.
After the Members catchup, Abbey from Whistling Kite Healing Therapies will be running an energy transformation workshop - Abbey is a trained Bowen therapist and has been practising for over 17 years. We are quite excited about what the session will be like as she has designed it especially for us !! Tickets are $20 and only available if booked in advance- please go to https://www.thewomensshed.org/bookings.html to book into any of our activities. Booking online really saves time , helps our teachers start classes on time and makes sure you get a spot.
That's about it for this week- hope to see you at the shed soon!
