Illston-on-the-Hill WI

18th April 2022 | Clubs and Societies

Illston- on-the-Hill WI welcomed Holly Norvill to our last meeting. She attempted to get us creative! We made beautiful coasters and plaques. Holly had brought all the gear with her, including flowers, leaves and bits of shrubs. We had to roll out some clay, select what picture we wanted to make, depress the bits into the clay, including some berries which came out beautifully. Then put a mould over our creations, pour on plaster of Paris, leave to dry, remove the outside mould and clay, seal off the disc and paint. What could be easier? Hope you are all still with me. You would be surprised how much of an issue some of us made!
