Michaela and Pauline have been running lots of craft course over the past few months, under the guise of Blue Sky Craft Workshops. (They have a FB page here, website is under construction.)
Recently they have run a whole series of introductory pottery courses- hand building, using the wheel and generally having fun with clay. These have been a roaring success- I was particularly pleased to see how much our lovely ‘Scottish Grannie’ Netta enjoyed her session yesterday- see the picture above and below.
Pottery in particular is one of those things that seems to transcend age class and gender- most people enjoy the feel of clay in their hands!
If you are interested in giving it a go, it might be worth considering a holiday break up here in Dunoon. It is often a lovely weather up here in the Autumn, as the Argyll forest gets all golden and busy with red squirrels preparing for winter;
Michaela took this photo yesterday morning from our house;
If you fancy a trip to see this place for yourself, we have a holiday annex which sleeps 4, and in the next couple of months will also have two en suite bed and breakfast rooms.
You can get in touch with us through our website here.
Or if you drop me a line, I can ask Michaela to add you to her mailing list for the wider craft workshops and it may well be possible to co-ordinate a wee trip here around them- felt making, learning how to use sewing machine, jewellery making, christmas cards, Christmas wrapping with a difference….
Looks lovely! My wife would love this. Would it be suitable for 5 and 3 year olds?
When does midge season start?
See you soon
Michaela says that she can work something out- perhaps doing some stuff as a family and some ‘adult time’ too if you like?
Midgies just about gone now, but will return around the end of May. You can work around them fine though usually- the sea breeze helps.
Perhaps best to get your wife to speak to Michaela Sam? She can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org
Slight complication to add is that child no.3 arrives in January!!
So 6 hour journey up for a weekend could prove tricky! Will try to see if it would be possible in next 12 months. Would love to support you…
No probs Sam- looking forward to meeting you when you come up…
perhaps we should just re-locate to Dunoon!!!?
Hope you get plenty of bookings
