Guns, Glue and Paint

Work Party

Volunteers needed.

Gluing experience an asset,
but will train!

The first body construction workshop was held June 24th. Six volunteers experimented with ways of efficiently gluing beads to pegs, drawing faces , putting on hair and tagging completed angels. Two hours of work produced almost 200 angel bodies, most with faces and many with hair. We were pleased with the first effort.

Watch for other workshops in the fall. We need to produce a at least 2000 bodies to supplement the work of individual volunteers who make another 2000 of them at home.

Think about hosting one at your kitchen table. All materials are supplied. If you have a table that seats 6 comfortably and can provide tea/coffee that is all that is needed. You choose the night and open your doors for 2 hours.

Contact Gail at for details.
