Volunteers help our members scuply playing…
Today, volunteers from Iwoca, the Business Finance people, came to Millman Street Community Centre to help with Carmen’s Sculpy Play art class.
HCA member Margaret made a couple of colourful turtles; others made a family of penguins, a rainbow unicorn and a whale. Fortunately, Sarah was around to take decent photos. Sadly, so was this reporter, hence the drivel-like quality of the article in which said photographs are embedded. Alas.
Creativity abounds at Millman Street Centre
Anyway, here’s what some of ’em who were there had to say:
“We’re all enjoying ourselves and having fun,” said Carmen, HCA’s Activities Coordinator.
Dane from Iwoca said: “I like the arty side of it”.
Under expert interrogation [sic] from your HCA hack, it was also discovered that the volunteers also do pub quizzes and food tasting at their other local volunteering days.
The hopeless word-mangler’s attempts to wangle free financial advice stalled when it was discovered that he’s boracic lint – a term used by financial people (oh, and, erm, Cockneys) to denote penury (it rhymes with ‘skint, see?)
Yeah, yeah. That’s all very well, but what about the artworks, eh? Well, since you ask, the figurines made by our members today are to be put in a kiln and cooked. [Cooked?! What’s the fool on about now? – HCA Bigwigs]. That is to say, placed in a kiln and heated in order to prepare them for decoration at a later date. You know, like pottery and all that.
Ahem. Any-wenny-way, Carmen said that the volunteers are due to return to Millman Street soon, to participate in another artistic activity yet to be determined.
Holborn Community Association would like to thank the Iwoca volunteers for their help today, and we look forward to their next visit to Millman Street Centre.
HCA volunteers and staff in their true glory. Your HCA hack on the left…
