An evening of Drawing

Nine members gathered in the Community Centre to learn some basic drawing skills from the wonderfully talented Yvonne.

We learnt basic shading, dotting, stippling, dashing, cross hatching, contour hatching, scumbling and how to draw a 3-D object

We ended up copying a Van Gogh using the techniques we had just learnt – with varying results!

June Happenings in Disley WI

The Craft Group had a great social evening in the Rams Head at the start of the month, and a couple of weeks later had a workshop on crochet skills

As usual, WI members created a wonderful well dressing board for the Disley Well Dressing

Many members helped to organise and took part in Disley Great Get Together – by knitting squares, waitressing, making peace quilt squares, singing in the community choir and coming along and eating cake. The event was a great success!

The Monday Book Club read ‘the flight between oceans’ by ML Stedman
