Worstead Festival 2018

Guild Members enjoyed a great weekend at Worstead Festival :  woolly friends, interested public, lashings of tea and scrumptious cake (courtesy of the lovely Church folk).  Photo 2 shows the beginnings of a Guild/Church/Community project (more of that later).  Now a rest before Mannington, and St Peter’s in Norwich, and Aylsham Show, and then Greenbuil

Building work update pics

Wednesday 15th August 2018

Exterior is due to be finished by Friday with maybe a few bits of guttering left to do. Then they will start on the inside.

We have now had the asbestos from the roof removed and it’s been reinforced with timber struts. The new roof is on and the boss says its a “proper job” – Logan approved. 🐾He’s earned his dog biscuit today!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now the professionals have moved in the building works have taken on a new pace. The first section of asbestos has been removed and today the wooden frame has been put in place and the waterproof membrane has been put on. Thankfully just before the heavy rain started. Today the cladding and roof tiles have been delivered and they will start going on tomorrow. So by the time you all get there tomorrow the first part of the building will be roofed and clad. On Wednesday (1st August 18) the asbestos people are back to take the next lot down. At the rate they are going we will have most of the building re clad by the end of next week. (photos taken before today’s work took place)

 

“Today’s” progress. Framework removed (builder approved that it was safe to do so). This is so the builder has less to do when they remove the asbestos and so charge us less!!
It looks like we had some little visitors staying with us.🐁

Photos of the building work will be added  when possible. What a great start!

Basket making with Sue Andrews

Sue Andrews is a hobbyist who has been creating traditional baskets using rush and willow materials for over 12 years and likes to share her skills with others.  She provided the Guild with a wonderful introductory course to basket making that everyone thoroughly enjoyed.

We used buff and brown willow to make a ‘string’ basket. By the end of the day, we all had something to take home of which, we could be proud.  Sue is such a brilliant teacher that our second workshop with her is fully booked and we are hoping to have another in the new year, along with a follow up class over a weekend.
