Christmas festivities

More than 30 members attended the Society’s Christmas lunch at The Maypole, Warley, which was brilliantly organised by Kate Heatley.

For our last meeting of the year, members were invited to bring a piece of work to show and talk about. It was interesting to hear why a picture meant a lot to the person. After the coffee break and mince pies, there was a picture quiz where, in small teams, we had to guess different household/kitchen items from bygone days. It was really funny how close and way off target some of our guesses were!


A Christmas Wreath

‘A Christmas Wreath’ was the subject of last Friday’s watercolour demonstration by Jane Austin for the Halifax Art Society. Jane gave many hints and tips on how to obtain different effects including using gold leaf.

It was a good turnout of members for this last session in 2018. At break time we enjoyed Christmas cake and cheese.

A Merry Christmas to all our members and friends, who will remember to join us again on the 4th January at All Saints Parish Hall in Skircoat Green , when Janet Gledhill will lead a morning of ‘Poetry and Cake’.
