...last week on Tuesday, i gave my first ever demonstration to the Lo-Fi DIY crowd of lovely people. it was a great evening, and i enjoyed it so much. it was very busy and my face did not go lollipop red which is the norm as well as making up new words. i showed people how to use Shrink Plastic (shrinkies) to make all kinds of different things. everyone got stuck in with creating designs and colouring in but we reached a hiccup when we tried to use Fred's oven in his cafe. his is an industrial one as opposed to a domestic oven which is what i normally use. all was well though after an explanation, everyone continued with their designs and took their work home to shrink so we shall be having a big show and tell at the next Lo-Fi DIY meet-up. i also made my first ever fact sheet to email out the next day and i think this is something i should do beforehand to hand out before/during/after demo-time.
if you wish to spot me, i am the one in the pink cardigan, standing up near the doorway and kinda in the middle of the photo. photo credits go to Chris and also thanks to Lisa who looks after the Manchester Craft Mafia Facebook page - where i got this photo from.
