WEA - News with Sharon Maycock & Pauline Quinn

Tonight I arrived at the WEA Creative Writing class held by tutor Andrew Stuart.
I heard the good news that WEA Manageress Julie Caley who attended our Private Review posted our achievements doing the Foundation Diploma in Art & Design @ Chesterfield College.
The biggest achievement for me was to purely attend the classes, focus and learn.

I'm over-the-moon that Sharon has excelled in this Foundation Diploma course as she will be going to Nottingham Trent University doing a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art.

Congratulations – Art Students complete Foundation Diploma

Congratulations to ‘WEA’ Art students Sharon Maycock and Pauline Quinn!

Having attended WEA art classes, they have both been students at Chesterfield College since last Autumn (2016) and have just completed their Foundation Diploma in Art & Design (Fine Art).  Some of their work was on display at The Dome at the College on Friday 23 June as part of a viewing of students’ work.

Inspire Community Garden - 28/05/2017 Allotment New Fencing Project

Ashgate Allotment's new fencing

Time to put the kettle on for a wee cuppa tea.

The girls picked up the used teabags and apple cores and put them into the composting bins for me.
Work still continued in the garden.

I think this could be a cocoon where a caterpillar will rest before it transfers into a butterfly?
(Here's hoping I can find it the next time!)

It's been another end to an interesting day and hoping that I've captured a caterpillar's cocoon!
