Schedule for March/April 2011

Thursday March 3rd – Mawnan Smith MCA Hall, Carwinion Playing Fields, Mawnan Smith. Large outdoor space for running around and a kitchen
Custom Clothing Sally is expert in making historical costumes and will show the more adept children/adults how to create a waistcoat or corset/bodice pattern that fits you perfectly. The rest of us can customise our own clothing by cutting, sewing, gluing and embellishing with buttons and fabric pens etc. We also hope to have time to do tie-dye if we have a volunteer to supervise this. Please bring clothes to customise plus old sheets or larger pieces of (preferably plain) fabric for tie dye and pattern making. Also any bits and pieces to customise clothes and a sewing machine if you have one. 10am – 3pm £2 per adult/child pair plus 50p per additional child towards hall hire and materials.

Thursday March 10th – Helston Museum 10am – 1130 am then Helston Park and Skate Park for lunch and play
The children in groups will devise quizzes for each other based on the exhibits in this lovely little and interesting museum. It is free to visit the museum but we suggest a donation of £1+ per family to assist the continued running of this very beautiful building.

Thursday March 17th – Swim at Ships and Castles Leisure Pool, Falmouth 11am-12pm Approx £3per person. Please check the website for details of adult/child ratios. This is discounted fun session only on for the hour so arrive in plenty of time to make the most of it. http://www.carrickleisureservices.org.uk/default.aspx?page=16 If the weather is fine we can go onto a park or beach after.

Thursday March 24th – Falmouth Art Gallery 10am – 1130 am We will be looking at the current exhibition Masters of Photography (This major international photography exhibition features iconic images by Eve Arnold, Jane Bown, Julia Margaret Cameron, Fay Godwin, Linda McCartney, Lee Miller and Man Ray.), and Donna will lead us in an activity based on it. These sessions are always good creative fun whatever we do.

Thursday March 31st – Stop-Animation workshop Mawnan MCA Hall, Carwinion Playing Fields, Mawnan Smith 10am – 3pm Simon will help us to make short animated films using stop-motion, think Wallace and Gromit, Nightmare before Christmas etc. More details to follow but please bring any characters/backgrounds etc to use in your animation ie Playmobil, Sylvanians, Barbies, Action Men etc etc We will also make some plasticine models to move frame by frame. Simon will bring his laptop and cds so everyone can have copies of the animations. £2 per family hall hire plus donations for materials and cds to be confirmed nearer the time.

Thursday April 7th – Constantine Woods 10am Meet by The Old School House or Skol Goth, at the bottom of Constantine hill just before you get into the village. This walk has been run again so soon after the other visit to the woods as the children requested it! It’s a beautiful place to walk with streams to play in, a rope swing and lots of space. Not suitable for bikes as very uneven in places. Bring a picnic as the children didn’t want to leave for lunch last time!
