Tech Night, and a little yellow robot


A proper blog on our May meeting will follow soon, but for now, a huge thank you to the good people from Dragon Hall for letting us play with your tech and for letting us keep the 3D printed robot, and we'll keep an eye out for your Kickstarter in June!


You're never too old to try Oculus virtual reality goggles, as Ruth demonstrates!

The lovely people from Dragon Hall


Tish loves our little yellow 3D printed robot, and has adopted her for the group

Women are from Venus, men little yellow robots are from Mars!

Bunting!

Craft Club, 5th May 2015

At this month's Craft Club, we finally finished (all but a bit of binding along the top!) our bunting. We'll be proudly displaying it at bake sales this summer, be sure to come and find us to view our handywork (and buy our cakes). Thanks to Helena for designing it, and all the wonderful ladies who came to Craft Club (and our March meeting) who made it!

May Meeting: Wed 20th May

Want to be ahead of the younger generation and know more than your kids? Or maybe you are one of the younger generation, and just want to play with some gadgets!

 

Joining us for the evening will be a speaker from Dragon Hall in Covent Garden, who will be bringing along lots of gadgets for us to play with. Think 3D printers, augmented reality glasses, 3D doodler pens, and lots of other toys that aren't just for the boys! Join us for what promises to be a fun and interactive evening of discovery.

For more information go to our our This Month page

Review of the Month: April

It's been a busy April for the ladies of LWEWI! The month isn't quite over, but our activities for the month are. Hopefully the sunshine is here to stay, and we can all get out and enjoy it!

 

We began the month with Craft Club; it was meant to be an evening of bunting making, but in the end we did some sewing, making little stuffed decorations from kits supplied by Jane (thanks, Jane!)



Our speaker at the main WI monthly meeting was David Evans of the Soho Society, who spoke to us about some of the issues Soho faces at the moment, and engaged us in lively discussions.


We finished the month's activities with a trip to The British Museum to attend the Community Preview of the Indigenous Australia exhibition. We're posing in front of an art project in the Museum's Great Court, which our talented committee member Helena (on the left) helped to create.
