Last year I started the shoebox scheme for local families in need. It was very successful. This year Carlos fish and chip shop in Alnwick is the drop off point for toys, groceries and shoeboxes and hampers. People should cover the shoebox in Christmas paper and put a note on top secured with elastic band as to who it is for. eg. elderly man, elderly woman, child, boy or girl age group or single man or woman. Shoeboxes should contain special gifts for the recipient. We have many families locally that need help. Please let us know of anyone you think may need help. 2nd hand toys in good condition, food for the food bank, luxury items for the hampers and filled shoeboxes are all welcome. If you cant do a shoebox, one or two items are still most gratefully accepted. I am looking for volunteers to organise the same in different parts of Northumberland.
I have an art studio in Craster where I offer bespoke creative sessions for full or half days. Whether you’ve done nothing’ since your schooldays, or you want to try something new, I can provide guidance and equipment, or leave you to your own devices if you prefer. The studio is equipped for drawing and painting, stitching, collage or assemblage of functional or decorative objects. The beautiful local landscape, and seashore finds, provide abundant inspiration. Drawing or painting outings can be arranged in the locality, or you may prefer to draw in the adjacent ‘fisherman’s allotment garden’. There is space for up to 4 people. Tea, coffee and snacks provided.
Frankie started out collecting sea glass, shells and driftwood on beaches across the world, and for over twenty years she has enjoyed making jewelry from her finds. Recently she has branched out into making brooches and necklaces from wool, shells, beads and sparkles in bright colours. She uses driftwood to create scenes and mobiles. Frankie is interested in sharing ideas with other women makers, and if you’re interested in buying anything just get in touch.
I am an artist based in North Shields, where I run groups and classes through my community interest company. I also run creative days at the coast in Low Hauxley near Amble. Full details of any of the classes can be found on my website under creative classes. I can also organise classes to fit with your plans/wishes. I work primarily with felt and fibre but not exclusively. I embrace an environmentally friendly ethic in my work and encourage it in others. I am a former professional photographer who strongly believes everyone can improve their own sense of happiness and well being by enjoying, exploring and embracing their own creativity. I also collaborate with Elaine Maughan, a natural energy healer, to hold spiritually creative days.
