During ouR appearance at Doncaster we had lots and lots of folk as about a visit to Hull. So much so that I booked a special venue.
Something odd happened however and not many of those that had asked for the visit signed up.
I did wonder if this workshop would go ahead and began questioning paying for the venue…
Thankfully just enough came through for the workshops to go ahead.
The venue that had been suggested and selected was the Village Hotel in Hull.
Quite an impressive looking building isn’t it?!
Anyway, I went in and met my liaison and she showed me to the function room that had been provided.
Set up didn’t take long …
… so I had time for some complimentary nibbles!
Later the ladies arrived and we set down to making some MDF creations.
Before long, it was time for lunch. The hotel were providing lunch for this workshop, and what a feast it looked!
There was some hot food too however I forgot to photograph it as I was shoveling it into my mouth.
Stuffed, we continued.
As the day progressed it was clear that we were each going to create something totally unique in style.
The day drew to a close and it was time to say ta-ta to group 1.
A quick yo-yo trip to ‘home’ and it was Day 2 already!
Day 2 was all about the Scan N Cut.
Although eight people had signed up, we ended up with a smaller group, which I guess made the day more personal.
Set up was a bit more tecchy this time as I had a project at my disposal for Scan N Cut Canvas.
We worked our way through various exercises though and made our way to a confident state of using the machines, which was the unified goal.
Lunch was again superb and the snacks went down a treat :)
Right! Time to get this group out to Maisy for their group shot.
Think this has to be one of my favourite group shots as it looks like some promo shot for a BBC docu-drama about a bunch of ladies that are going around the country in a motorhome.
It would probably be called something like – Free Wheeling Women.
Have you any better ideas?
As I packed, or rather jammed, the workshop stuff back into Maisy …
… I did reflect on what had happened and although it was a bit of a shame that all those that had requested this workshop didn’t come, I was very grateful to those that did.
Right, just two more workshops to go before Christmas so it’s back on the road for me and Maisy.
Oh, by the way, Christmas decorations are up …
