Making paper, Papermaking


What a GREAT Papermaking workshop with the incredible Carole Beach. Lots of fun experimenting and we had so many wonderful results. This was the last of our workshops for the year, but look out for future events and demonstrations that will take place in conjunction with our huge exhibition coming up in October.

The Sound and the Fury




Faulkner was great, but Salinger was probably better. Consensus last night was that Star Trek II The Wrath of Khan is CLEARLY the best Trek of all time. Beloved by so many, Nicholas Meyer's Directors Cut will be released theatrically in September! Everyone's favorite line in that movie is Spock's "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few." So poignant and true. After seeing Dunkirk which is the best war movie since All Quiet on The Western Front we also picked our top war movies. Other topics included awesome sci fi concepts such as Alien which had by far the best tag line: In Space no one can hear you scream. We also discussed incredible actors of which SIR Anthony Hopkins is at the top of the list, especially his portrayal of the insane madman Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs. Also on the list were Martin Scorsese's best films which include Raging Bull, Goodfellas, The Departed and Silence. Fun times!

Filet O'Mermaid




Under the sea,
Under the sea,
There'll be no accusations,
Just friendly crustaceans
Under the Seeeeeeeeeeeeea! 
 
Is what we were all singing as we welcomed back Kate and welcome NEW Kate to the Guild as Amber waddled in her awesome Ariel outfit. This was a perfect send off to 4 years of Super Hero Saturdays (nee Sundays).
