This month’s meeting was our Annual General meeting and our guest speaker was Mary Pease who gave al illustrated talk about “Crafts of the Andes”.
Mary had spent some time volunteering in orphanages in Peru and started her talk with a description of the geography, history and colours of Peru, Bolivia and Argentina. The crafts of the population living in the countryside consist mainly of weaving, tapestry making and gourd engraving, all inspired by their local scenery, native life and animals and plants. Mary showed us photographs of work by a famous artist called Tino, who specialises in stuffed tapestry. She brought along many examples of
these crafts, some of which were for sale to raise funds for a local school. We were all fascinated by the wonderful designs and brilliant colours of the crafts of the Andes.
Our December meeting will be the Christmas meal and we will recommence our regular meetings on Tuesday 7th January in Lower Peover School at 7:30, and again we cordially invite anyone who may be interested to come and join us
