pensnest: bright-eyed baby me (Camp Sparkle Death Cake)
[personal profile] pensnest posting in [community profile] campsparkle
I've done a little investigating, and there are two fairly different options for your consideration.

The Cupcake lady could come to us at The Ship Inn on June 11th (Saturday), either from 10am-1pm or 10am-3.30pm. This includes learning how to make decorations from scratch for cupcakes, using various tools and equipment. And in the process learning different skills, techniques and tips including piping buttercream.

Cost is £65 per person for the morning-only class or £100 per person for the full day. I'm assuming we would get to eat the cupcakes.

A completely different option would be to have a workshop in the Bay Gallery in Colwyn Bay, on the Tuesday afternoon. This would be just £5 each, maximum of twelve people, and we could be taught one of the following:
- coloured pencils
- pastels
- watercolours
- drawing techniques

I have sent an enquiry re some kind of art class to the other possibility but have not so far heard anything back.

I think if we're going to do one of these, we'll need to book it soon, therefore there needs to be a decision on what we want. Therefore, a poll.

Please tell everyone you can think of who ought to see this poll that it exists and that they should fill it in. And I beg you, don't even think about saying you don't mind what we choose. That is no help at all! Pick preferences.

[Poll #2040999]

If you have no interest in participating in any of these activities, please say so in comments.

If there is only one thing you would want to participate in, please fill in the first choice poll only.

The cupcakes thing sounds like fun, but will be too expensive for me. The artsy stuff looks real fun though, so I'd love to be a part of that. And whichever it ends up to be of those four options I'll probably be game :)

I'm still in agreement with [ profile] fadedsouls; the cupcakes bit seems somewhat neat but too expensive (and I shouldn't be eating them anyway...MORE abuse to my system is really not something I need to strive for at Camp, lol!)

I'm afraid I'm not very artistic at all (just don't have the patience to learn) so this isn't for me, but as a general activity for other people it sounds lovely, so I hope whoever does do this has fun! :)

I third ~fadedsouls and ~ninjetti75: the cupcakes sound fun, but are too expensive for me.
For the artsy stuff - ahhhhh, I kinda want to do it all! I made a choice, but it was difficult!

It's a pity the cupcakes thingy is so expensive. If it had been cheaper I would have been very interested.

£5 sounds really cheap! Does it include art supplies? I do have excellent watercolours for example, but don't think I want to bring them with me.

Which is to say, I'm interested in any of the art classes if I don't have to bring any supplies.

The Cupcake thing sounds interesting, but it's too expensive for me. I'm not the drawing type either.

Not keen on any of the activities, but hope things work out for those who are. :)

Cupcakes sounds lovely but far too costly, ouch! Others sounds nice, but I don't know that I'd be interested. [sorry, not as helpful as it should be]

The cupcakes sound cool, but too rich for my blood! Pastels or watercolours would interest me, just in a fun making art and getting messy way. (Whatever I picked third -- drawing techniques? -- was just because it was giving me an error message.)

I found -- somewhere -- a couple of ceramics places nearby that sounds a bit like Pots Of Art, though the firing and collection would be a Problem. One also had air-drying clay as a Thing To Do. Want details?
