Sirens of the Sound

January 7 @ 10:30 am 12:00 pm

Join ‘Sirens of The Sound’ – a new community sewing circle celebrating the working-class history of Plymouth Sound and part of the Plymothian sea re-connection project ‘The Gathering’

The brand-new sewing circle comprises of 6 online sessions (one a month) which will run on the first Saturday of every month starting in January 2023 from 10.30am to 12.00 midday. ‘Sirens of the Sound’ online session dates are taking place on:

· Sat 07 January 10:30 – 12:00 GMT
• Sat 04 February 10:30 – 12:00 GMT
• Sat 04 March 10:30 – 12:00 GMT
• Sat 01 April 10:30 – 12:00 BST
• Sat 06 May 10:30 – 12:00 BST
• Sat 03 June 10:30 – 12:00 BST

Each session will be a free workshop and will help members produce beautiful, embroidered artwork pieces for an exhibition in Plymouth celebrating the coastline in the summer of 2023.

The sessions will be led by Melinda Schwakhofer – an American artist and citizen of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation with Austrian-American ancestry who now lives and works on Dartmoor – and Karen Evans – lead artist for The Conscious Sisters CIC.

The six sessions will also include guest speakers to help inspire participants with stories of the ocean whilst they sew.

Please note: The six-session programme is a series of sessions not a drop in and it is essential that those who sign up can attend most/all the sessions. All materials will be provided, participants simply connect via a zoom link that will be provided.

📣 𝗣𝗢𝗡𝗧𝗢𝗢𝗡 𝗨𝗣𝗗𝗔𝗧𝗘

Hurricane Nigel, low pressure systems in the Atlantic incoming, very high winds Sunday and on Wednesday this week (gusts predicted up to 66mph on Wednesday afternoon).

We are afraid that we will be grabbing the pontoons as and when we have a weather window.

Cattewater Harbour Commissioners will take them out one at a time, hopefully easing you into their winter storage time, but this is for the safety of the pontoons, but more importantly yourselves.

As soon as we know when they will be coming out, we will let you know, but just to give you a heads up, as much as we wanted to keep them in for as long as possible. Unfortunately the winds and swell have appeared as suddenly as autumn seems to have.

The water temperature is a balmy 16.5oC, not into cold water shock territory yet, but in the latest Plymouth Sound National Marine Park newsletter, out soon, we've written loads on staying safe whilst bobbing this autumn/winter, taking pressure off Plymouth Lifeboat Station.

We'll let you know as soon as the pontoons are coming out. But please remember if in doubt, don't go out.

Thank you
