Autumn Candles

On the 11th of October we met at Cody Dock for our regular session. The session was lively with lots of people joining in right from the start. The children and parents/carers started with an embroidery activity using needles, jute and wool. The challenge was to make a bag/case. We also made lots of candles in different shapes, we used everything, even the smallest bit!

We also made some waffles, we attempted to make some lovely looking waffles with an Italian waffle maker, however we had lots of children waiting anxiously for their waffles so we decided to conventional pancakes on the pan as well. It worked out alright in the end thanks to the parents and children who helped make this session a success.

Saturday 11 February: Braving the coldest days!

We had a great gathering at Cody Dock this morning. Despite the snow and bitter cold, we had some brave, nature loving and adventurous children/parents show up! Thank you, thank you! There was the warmth of the fire, a very interesting and fun story, Indian chai with spices (cloves, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, black pepper), a little walk to collect twigs for our crafts and an embroidery session around the fire pit…that kept the kids so engrossed, they didn’t want to leave.
We look forward to our next gathering as winter slowly turns to spring!!
