Workshops with Gary Mills

The Lichen Project 2-day workshop with Tutor Gary Mills
at Timberscombe Village Hall
 Date: Saturday 13th – Sunday 14th October (2 full days)
10.00am – 4.00pm
Cost: £80 per person Deposit Required (cost includes all materials used)
Information and booking contact: email: garymillsdesigns@aol.com
phone: 07967903558
This two-day workshop has been in development since the success of the Eco Print & Natural Dye workshop of summer 2018. I have been intrigued by Lichens, their forms, colour and how they can be used and interpreted through textiles. You may have followed some of my photos on Face Book where I captured some of these beautiful lichens above growing in the mountains of Tuscany in Italy. So, with further research I have developed this workshop suitable for those interested in natural organic materials to inspire their textiles. This workshop allows time to explore new processes and experiments, but most importantly the time and space for those attending to play with ideas generated by many of the following: During the two days you will explore new materials such as ‘Tyvek’ and ‘Puff-binder’ to create interesting surfaces in response to the subject, which then can be stitched and dyed to work into the theme of Lichen. Fabric manipulation and embellishment in the forms of controlled scorch and burn, using flame and soldering irons lend themselves to some of the experiments to interpret lichen forms. You will explore colour, both taken literally from the lichen in a dye bath but also the contrast between the colours to make your work stand out when composing a textile piece. I propose we return to some of the natural dye baths (as in Eco dye) to support the colour palette, dropping in fabrics and threads and yarns to then develop into both hand and machine stitch responses to the theme. By the end of day one ideas for textile projects can be discussed for development and (hopefully) finished in day two.  The direction suggested for outcomes would be either a ‘Vessel’ type object or a ‘Wall Hanging’, but welcome other personal ideas.

Shine a Light-lampshade workshop with Tutor Gary Mills
at Timberscombe Village Hall
Date: Sunday 11th November 10.00am – 4.00pm
Cost: £38 per person Deposit Required (cost includes all materials)
Information and booking contact: email: garymillsdesigns@aol.com
phone: 07967903558
As those long dark nights draw in as we head into winter, why not have-a-go at making your very own personal lampshade to add a bit of fun and colour to any room. This workshop is suitable for all abilities with the outcome of a 20cm diameter x 18cm high personalised lampshade.
I propose 3 design options to choose from: Applique Stylised Florals and stitch, Country Theme and stitch or Rows of Houses with stitch to suit most tastes, but if you wish to create an idea of your own please do so. But keep it simple as time will be limited as we move onto the lampshade making.
The workshop will firstly concentrate on a length of fabric supplied, where you will applique and stitch your design for the intention to become a lamp shade. If you haven’t used bonded applique and free machine stitch before this could be a great opportunity for you to practice. You will need a sewing machine for this part of the workshop. (if you don’t have one I can bring one along for you to use)
Once your design has been completed you will then be guided through the process of making your lampshade using the materials supplied within this workshop.
Outcomes could give a dim room a new bright focal point or even could be teamed with a stylish lamp base for a very personal gift for Christmas.
Equipment required:
  • Scissors both fabric and paper
  • Small thread scissors
  • Sewing machine
  • Needle and threads.

Countdown to Christmas 2018
with Tutor Gary Mills and Nick Webber at Timberscombe Village Hall
  Date: Sunday 9th December 9.30am – 4.30pm
Cost: £48 per person Deposit Required (cost includes all materials)

Its coming around to Christmas again…… Where has that year gone?
So, for this year’s countdown to Christmas workshop I am proposing a more ‘contemporary feel’ with this stylish fresh foliage door wreath which I have designed and produced a couple of Christmases ago and this simple to make Scandinavian styled Reindeer Decoration. Plus, I’ve asked Nick to come and demonstrate his easy recipes (for you to taste); three of his delicious Christmas canapé ideas for you to impress your family and friends on Christmas day or a drinks party over the festive season.
Outline of the day: Note the extended times 9.30am -4.30pm
First thing Nick Webber, with all his catering experience and expertise, will demonstrate his recipes for homemade savoury canapés.
While the canapés are baking in the oven ready for break time, I will demonstrate and teach you how to make your own stylish contemporary fresh foliage door wreath.
During the break time you will be able to view and discuss the further table decorating ideas I have designed and put together for you to spark your own imagination for laying a visual festive feast on Christmas day.
The second half of the day I will be demonstrating and then you will be making a simple to make Scandinavian styled reindeer decoration made with linen, applied embellishment and found twigs.
There will also be more of my past projects on display and the kits to make them if you wish to purchase for yourself or for gifts to give to your other creative friends.
All materials to make one door wreath and one textile Christmas decoration will be provided.
All you need to bring are: an apron for the floristry, a pair of secateurs, kitchen scissors, fabric scissors, snips and hand sewing needles (sewing machine optional if you have one as figure can be hand sewn if you prefer)

Have Your Say

Have your say on draft recommendations for Somerset West and Taunton


In May 2018, the government decided to create a new local authority called Somerset West and Taunton Council. The council will replace the existing authorities of West Somerset Council and Taunton Deane Borough Council.
The Commission is now carrying out an electoral review of the new council to decide the number of councillors that should be elected to the authority as well as the names and boundaries of council wards.
We have an open mind about further suggestions from local people to change and improve these recommendations. We will consider all the submissions we receive whoever they are from and whether your evidence applies to the whole of Somerset West and Taunton or just a part of the area.
Below, you can see our proposals for new ward boundaries (in red) and search across the whole of Somerset West and Taunton, even down to street level. You can also click on any ward to find out how many voters are included in it and how many councillors we propose should represent it.
You can submit comments to us or upload a document by clicking on the 'Have your say' link Have your say. You can also draw your own boundaries and annotate the map by clicking on the button.
This stage of the consultation closes on 27 August 2018.

Police warning


BCU21 15082018 warning message


This message is put out at the request of our corporate communications department following a spate of vulnerable victim frauds. There are a number of `stories' that are used, one describes being from the NCA investigating the bank, others refer to errors on computers etc.

Scammers are quick-witted and their stories are very convincing. We urge you to read this advice from @GetSafeOnline and start a conversation with older relatives, neighbours and friends to make sure they are confident to say no to #TelephoneScams https://www.getsafeonline.org/protecting-yourself/telephone-banking-fraud/?utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=SocialSignIn

Waste Notice

With the continuing hot weather, Somerset Waste Partnership and our collections contractor Kier have agreed that all waste collections from now on will start at the earlier time of 6am to help ease the pressure on crews and vehicles. We would be grateful if you could let your residents know of the change, which will stay in place until cooler weather returns, and of the need to ensure all waste containers are out on time. 
While we will always do our best to keep parishes informed of waste changes, you may find it useful to bookmark the SWP website to see news announcements:
