It’s just as well our May meeting was about memory, as we needed a reminder to update the blog for April! It was actually an unforgettable evening, but we got a bit carried away with the end result and forgot to tell you lovely lot all about it.
Everyone knows the W.I likes to get crafty, and one of the ways you can spot us when we’re out and about campaigning is with our trademark banner.
Kicking off with a bumper turnout Sarah Mangan guided us through the process of screen printing with the aid of lovely assistants in the audience to help demonstrate how to put some welly in when getting the ink to stick.
With varying degrees of artistic confidence we were put to work creating cut outs inspired by SSWI’s subgroups, and activities. It became apparent that this largely involves food and drink! Between cake, chatter and pints it proved to be a productive evening, and the room was filled with “oohs” and “ahhs” as the banner came together.
By the end of the evening we had put together a beautiful banner incorporating all the things that make us the Shoreditch Sisters!
Saving the best till last, the moment we were all waiting for, Sarah added the finishing touch for the final reveal:
Coming to a street near you!
