August meeting - She's Got the Book

Tuesday, 27 August 2013 § 0

August's meeting gave the Roses a chance to get all literary with the help of Jess from the Travelling suitcase library.

The Travelling Suitcase Library run by library worker and advocate Jess Haigh (@bookelfleeds). Jess loves to talk reading and books, and can help with recommendations from the Travelling Suitcase Library if you are a bit stumped. Jess was amazing and gave us a talk about why she set up the library as well as answering some questions from the Roses. After that everyone at the meeting had a good old fashioned book swap before heading home with some fab reading material.

August workshop- Build me up Buttercream

For our August workshop we were joined by the lovely ladies from the Harrogate and District Branch of the British Sugarcraft Guild. They took the time to show the Roses how to make a duck and a dog out of marzipan.

These adorable animals taught the group the basics of modelling with marzipan and gave the Roses a chance to take home some great creations (or just eat them but most took there's home to treasure).

As ever the Roses took the opportunity to show off their creativity by taking the basic technique and creating their own unique designs.
