Meet the makers
Hmm... it would be great to have one of my paintings in an actual art gallery. Failing that, I would like to design a scarf for Flavia off Strictly Come Dancing (she was inn the earlier series). She is very stylish, and an amazing dancer, a modern day Audrey Hepburn really. What/who is your biggest inspiration?: I am a nature lover at heart, so much of my work is inspired by the natural beauty of flowers, plants, animals and birds around us. Although my style is very different, I have certainly been inspired by our own famous Macclesfield artist, Charles Fredrick Tunnicliffe. He was able to produce so many techniques and styles and had a great sense of design too. Do you have any events lined up?: I will be having a stall at the Makers Day this Saturday, November 21, 10am-4pm at the Old Sunday School, (Heritage Centre) and also at the December Rode Hall Farmer’s market on Saturday, December 5, 9.30am to 1.30pm. app, which is aimed at parents, grandparents and carers of children aged 0-5.
CATCH, which will be launched early next year, aims to help parents and carers determine when their child needs medical attention and when minor ailments such as colds and bumps to the head would be better remedied with self care.
All information contained within the app is drawn from NHS Choices, which is written and reviewed regularly by clinicians and is the Name of event: Makers Day at The Old Sunday School, Macclesfield Silk Museum, Roe St, Macclesfield SK11 6UT When is it?: Saturday, November 21, 10am-4pm What does it involve?: This Saturday, drop-in to the Old Sunday School for our ‘Makers Day’ when you can meet more than 20 local makers and crafters, have a go at over 20 crafts, browse and buy handmade goods and even make gold-standard for healthcare information in the UK.
CATCH will also enable users to create personalised profiles for their children and will notify parents and carers when important health milestones are approaching, such as immunisations.
Crucially, CATCH is highly localised, and has information about all local healthcare services programmed within it – empowering parents to choose the right service at the right time. One of the some pieces to take home. Meet local craft networks including the Embroiderers Guild, Quilters Guild and the Spinner, Weavers and Dyers. Who is it suitable for?: Everyone. Any other information?: Entry to the event is free but some activities may charge. Want to find out more?: Call 01625 613210 or visit www.silkmacclesfield.
org.uk. reasons we’ve chosen to focus on this age group initially is because A&E attendance for children aged 0-4 in Eastern Cheshire is far higher than the national average. There could be a number of reasons for these higher than average figures, but ensuring parents and carers are self-care aware is a great place to start.
The CCG is holding CATCH testing and feedback sessions in December 2015 and January 2016, email kate. email@example.com if you would like to be involved. cu st ta ve ch p te
