Ullesthorpe W.I March Report

Analiza Jones was the speaker at our March meeting. She talked about the process of making fine woven bags from tropical plants harvested in the Philippines. She explained the very labour-intensive work process which goes into making the beautiful bags. It is a vital much needed industry. She had slides of the work involved showing whole communities helping to make the bags.

The bags were for sale at the end of the meeting much to the delight of the members.

At the March meeting Laraine Tucker treated us to a talk and demonstration. Tai Chi is a gentle exercise and moving meditation to help mental and physical health. Laraine gave an amazing demonstration and was so calm that she was completely unaware of her audience.

We were invited to join in the exercises and afterwards members said they enjoyed the experience. It was very relaxing way to exercise.

We are looking forward to a different exercise in June “Hula Hooping”. This will be followed in July by “Decadent Desserts”
