Paintings, drawings and silver enamelled jewellery around the theme of microscopic water creatures. A strange fascination with owls and some collaborative work with a woodworker.
 
Megan Burt has been painting and drawing imagery of microscopic creatures for some time and is finding it interesting to move the theme over to a different medium. Working in 3 dimensional forms  with silver enables her to create more texture and definition.

Write Rite - guided creative writing sessions

Sunday 29 October
5:00 am - 6:30 am

Want to build a writing habit, but not sure where to start? Or looking for a dedicated space to flex those writing muscles and get some wit exercise? Looking for NaNoWriMo accountability? You may need a Write Rite.

Sunday late afternoons in St Margaret’s House Room G8 we’ll hold a space for anyone looking for a calm place to write.

We’ll start with a cuppa and a chat, have a gentle stretch and a few minutes of mindfulness/meditation to get in the zone and engage the senses.

Make a Russian Wedding Ring

Sunday 29 October
10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Traditionally, Russian wedding rings are three interlocking bands of rose, white and yellow gold symbolising the past, present and future of the couple.
In this workshop you will make three sterling silver rings creating a ring based on this design. You will be provided with the silver required and learn how to size, saw, shape, solder and finish your ring.

The silver is included in the price.
