Hi Everyone
Thank you to everyone who supported me on Monday, when I did the demonstration on glass fusion as a stand in as Sue Chatterton was taken ill, it was much appreciated!
Just to let you know, I spoke with Sue on Tuesday, she got home from the A&E Eye Hospital at 6pm on the Monday, and is on medication but thankfully is expected to make a full recovery. I have asked her to come back to HDSA for our 2025 Programme.
27 NOV 2023 – DYOT – PASTELS
Shirley Blyth has kindly volunteered to walk people through using pastels at DYOT on Monday 27 Nov 7pm. Shirley has set out items which it would be useful to bring:
  1. Any pastels if you have some
  2. Pastel paper if you have some
  3. Wet wipes for your hands
  4. Paint brush for pastel dust
  5. Putty rubber – good for removing stray pastel
  6. A folder or folded paper to cover your picture to take it home
Shirley will have some pastels and pastel paper if anyone doesn’t have their own.
Come along and try something new!
11 NOV 2023 – ART & CRAFT FAIR
Thank you to everyone who helped at the 11 Nov Art & Craft Fair, it was much appreciated. Our HDSA Cafe is developing a reputation and we definitely had increased footfall at the Fair this time and what a fantastic display from our stall holders, you all should be so proud of your arts & craft talents. We raised £420 at the event which is going towards our 2024 Programme.
Many, many thanks to our wonderful HDSA Cafe volunteers!!
Our HDSA Quiz and Buffet is on 11 Dec 23 – so remember to gen up on your knowledge ahead of time and don’t have your tea before you come as the HDSA Buffet will be open in the interval!
You can form a team or just come along and join a team on the night, this has always worked really well in the past and is usually a fun evening!!
We have 3 x 2023 demonstrator paintings to raffle and will be drawing the lucky winners at this event.
We have put together an exciting 2024 Programme of Demonstrations and Events for our 50th Year in 2024, the Programme is attached in simple form – Alan Briggs is putting together our programme leaflet and finalising our new logo to include within it.
I have attached 2024 membership form in this email – it would be much appreciated if you would renew your membership and continue to support the Art Society and even more appreciated if you could do this before Christmas!!
As always if anyone has any queries please give me a call, otherwise I hope to see you at our Pre-Christmas Events
Best Wishes
