Dear all,

Happy New Year to members, ex-members and friends of Edan! Hope you have all enjoyed the festive season. 

For those of you who might be interested in attending our January workshops, but haven’t yet signed up, I am listing them below alongside the number of places I think are still available. 

As a reminder, costs are £5.00 per hour for Edan members and £10.00 per hour for non-members. Materials costs are extra but are usually minimal. 

The collagraph workshop was full, but one space has now become available. 

Please let us know if you want to attend any of these. First come, first served! 

I shall send out a specific email to those who have signed up, before each workshop with any necessary details.

Best wishes, 

Jean S.

Christmas Lunch

Our lunch this year was another huge success enjoyed by all. Those who couldn’t go missed a treat. Grateful thanks must go to Mabel for organising the event. Crackers, paper hats and festive joy were very much in evidence. Our choir entertained us with melodic singing. Carols were sung and Michael was an added plus with his seasonal  sing song. The raffle prizes delighted those that won and were the envy of others! Unfortunately there were no slippers this year George! (An In joke). Michael had our brains turning cart wheels with his Christmas quiz but one clever group had every answer correct. Well done them. A visit from the great man himself, Santa Claus, and not forgetting his wonderful assistant, Mrs Claus, brought smiles of delight to the people in anticipation of gifts to follow. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to visit us.

Thanks must go to the staff at Seaham Golf Club for their delicious food and wonderful service.

We’re already looking forward to next year’s lunch.

A big thank you to all who made this a great success.

Wynyard Hall Christmas Fayre

We had another splendid trip to Wynyard Hall for the Christmas Fair. On arrival, it was certainly very busy but with good reason. The hall itself and the marquee and other areas were fully decked with the most wonderful Christmas goods for sale. We then headed to Hardwick Hall and an excellent afternoon tea. The staff were most helpful and even provided cardboard boxes to allow us to take home the uneaten goodies for supper. Very well done to Malcolm for all his hard work in organising another brilliant day out!
