Thanks to the generosity of Martin and the Tuffnell team, this year’s AGM will take place at Flame Off.
If you are attending Flame Off, please make an effort to attend the AGM, or if you’re local and not attending Flame Off, please still attend the AGM.
We anticipate the AGM to take approximately 1 hour of your time, we need your input if we are to act in the interests of majority vote.
The AGM will take place at 5.30 pm on Saturday 16th April at Flame Off – Uttoxeter Racecourse.
Location – upstairs in the demo room.
Any items you would like added onto the agenda, please email email@example.com
Agenda to follow.
Members have the opportunity to sell their beads on the GBUK table at Flame Off.
We will have limited amount of space available on the stand for this. They will be taken on a first come, first served basis but anyone volunteering can have their own space (free of charge) to sell beads for the duration of their time on the stand. We will charge £2.50 per ‘slot’, a slot being a square compartment measuring 3 inches square and 1¼ deep. Members may ‘buy’ up to three of these for the duration of the two days. If you would like to take advantage of this, please bring your beads on the day.
This a great way to test your toes in the arena of selling your beads for those of you who have never tried before or those that do sell and would like to have some for sale at Flame Off without the expense of a stand.
Thank you to everyone that entered!
The results are as follows:
• Joy Munshower – Sandy Kelly
• Glenn Godden – Ilsa Fatt
• Kathryn Greer – Karen Smart
There wasn’t a winner for Ann & Josh’s glassblowing class so keep your eyes open on our Facebook page for another chance to attend this fascinating class.
We have four places available, one on each of these classes
Glenn Godden (borosilicate marbles)
Kathryn Greer (encased florals)
Joy Munshower (sealife)
Ann & Josh (glassblowing)
But we aren’t just giving them away… you have to do a little something in return!
GBUK will have a table at Flame Off and as always we need volunteers to run the stand for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We will be grateful if anyone going could spare an hour to help out. Please let us know!
Once again we will also be making a limited amount of space available on the stand for members’ beads for sale. These will be taken on a first come, first served basis but anyone volunteering can have their own space (free of charge) to sell beads for the duration of their time on the stand. We will charge £2.50 per ‘slot’, a slot being a square compartment measuring 3 inches square and 1¼ deep. Members may ‘buy’ up to three of these for the duration of the two days.
Beads can be brought straight to Flame Off but the slot would need booking in advance to guarantee your space. Beads need to be tagged with name and price, plus an inventory. To book, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Marshall Hyde will be teaching at Studio 19 on Saturday 23rd March, as a kind of ‘pre-Flame Off warm-up’!
The class is called ‘Designing and Thinking in Glass: Beyond Technique’ or ‘Discover what you already know: How to make the work you always wanted with skills you didn’t know you had’. Definitely something a bit different!
The cost will be a bargain £60. To book a place, please send a £30 deposit to Di, either by paypal to email@example.com or by cheque.
