Our meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month and our venue is open at 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start. They are open to everyone so you don't have to be a member to come along - just turn up! Meetings are free for all Buns & Roses members and there is a small charge of £5 for non-members.

These sessions vary from inspiring guest speakers to crafty get-togethers with the odd cake and cocktail thrown in for good measure! You can bring along your craft projects, get advice or learn a new skill and just have lots of fun.

This is the amended schedule as has been discussed at our meetings. We have cancelled some workshops and moved some topics around and there may be further changes. If you have any queries please drop us an email at bunsandroses@live.co.uk


Meetings 2018

18 January - Resolution Time - January is the time of year that we participate in the democratic process of choosing which WI resolution we would like to go forward to the Federation with some lively debate! There will be the opportunity to make a name badge. This will also be a general meeting with ample opportunity for crafting and making those New Year's craft resolutions come true!

15 February - Twist & Shout - Learn some Modern Jive 

15 March - Tea for Two - This is the new slot for our annual 'bring a friend' meeting. We will be tasting tea, so come along and bring a friend or two!

19 April - We Like To Party - Annual meeting and 9th birthday party. Join Buns & Roses as we celebrate our birthday with cake and entertainment galore.

17 May - Lean On Me - This is a general craft and catch up meeting, so bring along your latest project, or maybe bring a new one to start.

Workshops 2018

Our workshops are held on the first Thursday of the month and our venue is open at 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start. We have reduced the number we are running this year but do pop back and this is still subject to some change.

Spaces are limited so places must be booked in advance. Buns & Roses members are given priority booking about a month in advance, which is just one of the perks of joining! Our workshops vary in cost and are always a few pounds cheaper for Buns & Roses members, another membership perk!

05 April - Bits & Pieces  - come along and make a mosaic.

05 July - What Makes You Beautiful - Back by popular demand, our very own inspiring Georgina will show us how to make some amazingly easy cosmetics.   

01 November - A Holly Jolly Christmas - Get into the festive spirit with our willow weaving workshop, where we will be weaving a circular shape, which can be used as the base for a festive wreath.
