LEVEL: Beginners to intermediate.

CAMERAS: Please bring your own camera – DSLR, bridge or compact systems. Phone cameras are welcome but please be advised that their technical capabilities may limit the pictures you are able to take.

                                        Zainab’s CURRY CLUB

We’ll be making at least two curries and accompaniments with the collection and preparation of our vegetables from 11am. One dish will be made with meat and everything else will be vegetarian. Come and learn how to make an authentic Indian curry with Zainab.

The beauty of this workshop is that you will then enjoy a meal including the produce collected from the community garden an hour or so before you eat it!

Needlecraft at INSPIRE

We’ll be making some fabric flowers from scrap poly- cottons, fine cottons, violets and nets. I have a supply of scrap fabrics, needles, sewing cotton and brooch pins. Though it would be useful if attendees could bring along their own fabric scissors, and a needle and sewing cotton. (i.e. a small sewing kit). It is all hand sewing. This session will be led by Karen Booth.
