Hi ladies - how are you? How is it feeling to be slowly engaging with the world again?We've been busy this week - meditation, pottery, macrame, book club, yoga, pilates, gardening and walking!
If you are worried that you might miss out, don't worry - we will run some of these activities again, but if you are really keen to join in the fun, please download the 'Band' App - you can access our calendar, chat with other members and you get to hear about one off activities that are just for members - like the macrame meetup this week, and the introduction to handbuilt pottery.
This week we have our regular yoga, pilates and meditation classes - the yoga is back at the shed and online, pilates and meditation are online. Our Tuesday walkers are back again meeting at 8am at Tickle Park, Coolum. Also on Tuesday its another class back at the shed - drawing for beginners, and we are covering chapter 7 of the book - looking at positive aspects of negative space. Sorry we haven't managed to get the last lesson up online yet-too busy! We put it all in the members area so you can join anytime. We also have an informal shibori 'bee' on Thursday 11-3- we will be working on some things to sell as a fundraiser. Tickets will be available on Monday.
Meanwhile, some of the vocal group are nervous about Thursday evening - it's only our second time meeting up in person! If you are coming you can listen to the songs we have been working on over zoom - we have a playlist on soundcloud - the link is in the members area.
PLEASE NOTE: All activities are must be booked in advance - even free ones! It helps us comply with COVID 19 requirements, and it really speeds up the check in process.
BOOK BEFORE 1st JULY! We have been given priority access to tickets for 'An evening with the dragon' with Tania Edwards, on 26th September at 6-8.30pm. Tania has an enormous woodfired pottery kiln in the hills of Cooroy. Firings take a team of people working round the clock for up to a week, the kiln itself is big enough to sleep in (although too hot!). Meanwhile inside the kiln, the magic is happening as the different temperatures, wood ash and oxygen levels are manipulated by the kiln team. These kilns are so big, they only fire a few times a year, so it's pretty special to get an invite.
We have been invited to enjoy a light supper of her mom's homemade soup and garlic pizza bread cooked on the kiln. Tania will talk us through the process and you will be able to see her work being fired (bring sunglasses to look in a kiln!). It's a really atmospheric evening, and you get to take your soup bowl home as a souvenir. We would love to make this an exclusive Women's shed night out, so Tania is giving us priority access until 1st July - let's see if we can all get up there and enjoy the warmth of the kiln - tickets are $50 for members. BYO wine. We will arrange car sharing nearer the time. Book here
