Bodmin Gaolbirds WI


The Bodmin Gaolbirds WI moved to Out of the Box Cornish Craft House (formerley the Warehouse Arts and Craft Centre) from June 2015.

Bodmin Gaolbirds are an energetic, friendly and eclectic group of ladies. We gather one evening every month for tea, cake and chit-chat, with some interesting talks and demonstrations thrown in. Everything from baking and paper craft, to fancy dress and wine tasting – you name it, we’ll give it a go!

We run a craft club on the 4th Wednesday of the month and have taster sessions on every craft you can think of. So far we have tried our hand at Mosiac, decopatch, weaving, marbling, working with willow, learning to crochet, felting, cross stitch, jewellery making, papercutting, quilling, machine knitting demonstration, learn to knit to name but a few. This Craft Club is open to anyone, not just WI members, everyone welcome.

We have one educational visit every year: so far we have visited a winery, St Austell Brewery and Poundstock Guildhouse.

2014-03-12 20.56.14Come and see for yourself just what we’re all about, every second wednesday of the month from 7:15pm

Visitors are always welcome and there is no charge for the first couple of visits, try before you buy!

The cost of joining the WI from now until the end of the year is only £18.00, great value for money, brilliant company, monthly speakers, competitions, raffle,  social events and lots of cake, what more can you want!
