Design and Create

August 15th 2019

Our group met on Friday 9th August and a member wrote the following:

“Another enjoyable afternoon at Design and Create. I am really enjoying learning new skills and working with different materials. It’s really satisfying making new things. I can’t wait to see the end result of my ‘fountain photo album’, it will make a fab Christmas  present. Still a free space, why don’t you come and join us?” You will be welcome.

The group meets on the 2nd Friday of every month, at a member’s home. Contact can be made via – interestgroups@bdu3a.com or contact Julie on – julvan@hotmail.co.uk

Our next meeting is on Friday 13 September at 2pm.

June 2019

We met today and taxed our brains with making pocket pages to start our albums.  There were some small blips along the way (here I take an intake of breath – mine was the biggest) but hey,  everyone took it into their stride, thank you.  We completed a waterfall page and started a wallet style one.  There was laughter along the way, and at least, if nothing else, we learned how to unblock glue and how to score card at 1/2 an inch!!   Next meeting is Friday 12th July at 2pm.

May 12th 2019

On Friday 10th May there was an introduction to some die cutting and heat embossing techniques (laughter included along the way!). We then decided for next month to start the process of making small interactive photo albums using recycled cat food boxes with each person designing a theme for their album.
Next meeting is Friday 14th June 2pm at a member’s home.
The group is full at present, however, if anyone is interested in joining us please email
