Our new committee member, Fleurie, welcomed members to her home three times in the same week for the first of her events.
Hairstylers – What Does What?
Members entered Fleurie’s kitchen to find it transformed into a hair salon, complete with a vast array of hair styling equipment.
Fleurie showed us how to use the equipment with an eye on safety, as most were very hot.
She gave some life to Sue’s very fine straight hair, and Dinah was fascinated by her natural fascinator.
In true WI fashion there was tea and cake and even the cakes were hair styler themed!
After 2 hair sessions Fleurie then turned the focus on to making Beeswax wraps.
Maggie P, Jakki and I arrived to find the kitchen morphed into “ironing” central.
I was interested to learn we would be melting the beeswax with irons rather than in the oven as I’d previously learned.
The process was simple, a sheet of greaseproof paper, add a square of cotton, sprinkle with beeswax , cover with another sheet of greaseproof and iron.
We made squares for ourselves and for the sales table for the next WI.
Once again there was tea and this time bee themed biscuits.
We look forward to the Make Up sessions in March.
