AUGUST AT A PACE
I am so not sure how it is already August. Harvest is fully in train and much has shifted, challenged and inspired me over the last two months.
In early June I wrote of my delight in an upcoming workshop 'Women of Wit, Wisdom & Wonder', at Hawkwood College, Stroud, planned for this September.
As the seasons move some unexpected opportunities showed up; realisations emerged....
Here in the UK, two specifics of timing demanded my attention:
- 2018 is the Centenary of the first women getting the Vote (The Representation of the People's Act 1918)....
- 2018 is the 70th Anniversary of Hawkwood College - itself founded by two redoubtable women
- I have opportunity to interview another three amazing women (you'll have to wait for the final announcement of who) about the women who have inspired them, and to add their thoughts into both my book and workshop
- Thanks to another incredible woman, a neighbour (who will be doing the sewing I fail at spectacularly) we are creating a Story Quilt which will join the book, have it's first outing at my workshop.....
We have rescheduled the Workshop:
Women of Wit, Wisdom & Wonder
SATURDAY 14th APRIL 2018
