Recycling just got glamorous!

Sorry for the late notice ladies but sadly our advertised speaker for our March meeting Peter King is stuck being fabulous somewhere and so at the very last minute the divine Scrapiana has stepped into his Oscar winning shoes to demonstrate the alchemy of making lovely new things from old.Scrapiana for the Bath WI

Whether it’s making strawberry needle-cushions from jam-pot covers, or fabric-covered beads from an old Liberty lawn blouse, there’s always a novel twist on using up textile scraps at a Scrapiana Workshop. Bath based Scrapiana has spent several years campaigning on waste, trying to persuade the British to throw fewer things away & her latest quest is to get the nation mending, darning and patching again. She’s a regular contributor to international magazines and blogs such as Mollie Makes and provides inspiration to us all through her classes and her project The Big Mend.

We’re delighted that she’s joining us to demonstrate a few of her secrets and to inspire us all.  To find out more about her or to book a class then please go her website at scrapiana.com

Remember that friends, family and just the plain curious are welcome to come along and join us for this meeting on Wednesday the 6th of March at 7.30pm at St Mary’s Bathwick.  Please email us at thebathwi@gmail.com if you’d like any more details.
