November 2014

There was a real ‘buzz’ in the cafe on Monday 3rd November when friends gathered in the Village Hall for an afternoon with a creative theme. We were delighted to welcome local artist Elaine who demonstrated how to create a wonderful coastal picture using collage techniques and then invited everyone to have a go!

After some initial hesitation, we decided ‘nothing ventured, nothing gained’ with some truly impressive results: paper, card, glue and scissors and all the artistic flair we could muster were put to good use, and within an hour we had an interesting display of our handiwork framed and ready to hang on the wall. Our thanks to Elaine – we hope she’ll come back again!

Whilst we enjoyed our tea we were treated to the work of a second talented artist – our very own Brian, who had brought in several of his wonderful paintings for us to see. Brian’s paintings of trains, fishing boats, planes and cars are works of detailed perfection and we were privileged to be able to look at them at close quarters and hear about Brian’s painting methods.

After tea we were able to relax and chat – with Autumn in mind, there were word and pictorial puzzles to do, and an intriguing box full of Autumn leaves in which to delve and discover conkers, pine cones, pumpkins and other seasonal items.

As the afternoon drew to a close, we had a surprise visitor – Denise arrived with Darcey, her delightful retriever puppy, who charmed us all – hopefully we’ll meet her again as she grows into a beautiful dog.

One final exciting development – as we now have our own webpage you can even email us on .

Our next gathering will be on Monday 1st December from 2pm – 4pm at Crantock Village Hall.
