WI.RED Monthly Meeting – WEDS 20th August - TODAY!

Doors open at 7.30pm. Meeting starts at 8pm.

Tonight will be a clothes swap (swishing) followed by an outfit upcycling demonstration and jewellery workshop.

Swish for something you wish
Swishing refers to swapping an item or items of clothing or shoes or an accessory with friends or acquaintances. Parties must willingly give an item to participate in the transaction, once they have given an item they are free to choose something of interest from what others have offered. Value does not come into the equation, swappers do not necessarily get an item of equal value and are free to choose anything that other people have offered (without having to pay).

For Frock's Sake!
Once all your swishing donations have been deposited, we will be educated in the art of upcycling from the fabulous Fliss who runs 'For Frock's Sake'.

She will also be running a jewellery workshop during the meeting, so you will have the opportunity to handpick some pretty beads and construct a pair of earrings to take home at the end of the evening. Please be aware that this workshop requires a surcharge of £2 pp to cover the cost of the beads.

Guests are welcome at a cost of £3.50.
