April Branch Meeting - Yurts, Kaks and Yoghurt with Jane Davies

At this Monday's branch meeting (April 13th), we will be welcoming Jane Davies to talk about 'Yurts, Yaks and Yoghurts', about the little known Central Asian state of the Kyrgyz Republic - with its beautiful countryside and traditional crafts of felt work. Here, for centuries people have constructed their round 'yurts' or dwellings from felted wool. These needed to be easily assembled and transported as the animal herders moved to new pastures.

We have been informed that roadworks are due to commence on Linden Road at the junction of Cadbury World with 3 way temporary traffic lights on Monday 30th March 2015 for approximately 2 weeks - so these may still be on for April’s meeting. You might want to allow extra time for travelling to the session if you travel this way.

If you're new to the Guild, visitors are welcome, and the first session is free, with a charge of £4 thereafter. Please see here for details of where we meet. See you there!
