Father of the Sheds, Roger Gould, has gone back to his second childhood if not his third, He has provided a challenge for kids of all ages (including Shedders therefore) to use best Blue Peter practice and spare toilet rolls to make a racing car.
He was sent this by a friend. Pass this on to young families and boy racers for them to try. Roger informs that this came from an American friend. Looks like they have a surplus of loo rolls there and are trying to find other uses!
Anyone suggest a painting Graham might re-enact or you! Anything Shed related?
What to do during the quarantine? Reenact famous paintings! It's an Instagram challenge using the hashtag #TussenKunstEnQuarantaine — which means 'between art and quarantine'!
And here from our Scouting friends. An idea for your grandchildren, children or even you. Camping holiday at home!
A life on the ocean waves!
An email from Staithes Shedder Malcolm pushing his boat out!
Morning from Malcolm,
I came across the Lyme Regis Boat Building Academy this morning, purely by chance as I was looking through the Axminster Tools website, ‘Meet the Maker’ Designer & furniture maker Alice Blogg
Although they run lengthy courses, if we want to go down the boat building route, could be worth talking to them to get some advice. If I was a lot younger, I’d be tempted to sign up for a 40 week boat building course. £15,850 for the course and £100 per week accommodation. Not cheap. [ This sounds like grounds for a separation !!!! Graham ]
A final thought, do any of the Lyme Regis Boat Building students live and work here in the North, and if so, worth contacting.
Further to my previous email, they run a short course on Traditional Wooden Boat Building, Mon 29th June – Fri 3rd July, £675.
Coronavirus and bad back permitting, I’d be on that course.
