IT was a first for the Myall Community Art & Craft Centre recently when three group leaders stepped six active and enthusiastic students through the creation and making of their own individual Light Catcher.

Group leaders Gwenda Collins, Sandra Chapman and Peter Vaessen held the Stained Glass workshop as an introduction to members interested in learning this fascinating craft.
Co-ordinator of the Stained Glass Group, Gwenda Collins, told News Of Tthe Area, “None of us have done anything like this before and the three of us have different skills to pass on and so we work together to do what we can for the continuation of the Group.
“The Group used to be called Leadlighting but we changed the name to Stained Glass so as to provide a much wider range of projects for the students attending our workshops.”
Everyone completed a Light Catcher and had loads of fun facing the challenges of learning a new craft whilst at the same time it was also a different kind of learning curve for the three group leaders as this was the first time they had run a workshop.
Many beautiful items were created on the day making the workshop a huge success with most students keen to continue to improve their skills and join in each Tuesday.
Future workshops are limited to six students so if you are keen to become involved in a new craft, call into the Craft Centre on a Tuesday morning to see the group working in action and you may even wish to put your name down for one of the future workshops.
