Our March meeting was engraving angular shapes, over laying them so that they appeared 3D. They also had to include an animal or plant that suited their design. Straight edges very important in this exercise.
The formal meeting was short as there was a meeting in December. There were comments on the days work and on the engraved glass that members had brought in. Sandra had brought glass for sale, with any proceeds to the branch. We had a lovely lunch and an excellent day was had by all.
Unfortunately the Northern Branch will not be holding an exhibition of engraved glass at the National Glass Centre, Sunderland in August 2020. This is because of the lockdown constrictions still being applied.
At the moment all of our meetings have been cancelled as there are no halls that are open for use.
I will update this as soon as I know where we can meet up again.
We always welcome visitors to our branch meetings, which are usually held in Patrick Brompton Church Hall, Nr Bedale from 10.30 - 4pm.
