"Yes, fabulous bonsai workshop. Adam's has a vast amount of  knowledge and his enthusiasm is infectious. I will treasure my mature bonsai tree which was included and am inspired to nurture my project tree. Also have my eye on a well grown cutting in my garden to experiment on....😆"

Incredible Away Day - 20 April

Incredible Bake-Off

Saturday 13 April

Who said bread making was complicated and time consuming??

In under 2 hours we made iced buns, and onion & cheese bread. Some people added marmite to the bread and it was absolutely delicious. (Yum yum)!  Added to this we then had a demonstration on making Chapati's spread with a mango & coconut dip. Value for money.... YES. Enjoyable 2 hours.... definitely, without a doubt!

Guess that says it all -

Pictures speak louder than words!

Free Motion Quilting, 2 March 

There may be no better way to communicate what we do than through images.

The Free Motion Quilting workshop, though not as well supported as most, provided quite a challenge for those who attended. Feed dogs dropped and with no tension, straight lines were more of a challenge than sewing flowers! With new skills learned, the experience was enjoyed by all.

Fishy Goings-on,  23 February

Creativity was unleashed at our latest craft workshop, an absorbing experience for all those who attended.

Fingers were kept busy and creativity flowed! With a little imagination unusual glass bottles were transformed into stunning works of art under Jules' expert guidance.

Macrame Workshop - Friday 19 January

Well done to the lovely group of ladies who kicked off our craft programme for this year at the macrame workshop last night. We made lovely plant pot hangers, with much discussion about what we will put in them, then moved on to the more challenging heart decoration. Many thanks to our tutor Clare Edens for all her guidance and patience.

Our next workshop is the knitted/crocheted sea life workshop, don't forget to book your place.

Gardeners' Question Time - 9 November

A great enjoyable and informative evening. A small but enthusiastic group plied our gardening guru, Ray Creek, with lots of gardening and plant related questions. We came up with some good ideas for our gardening programme for next year, had a fun quiz provided by our own Bridget B, and  ate cake. Fabulous evening, thanks to those who came for their input🌲🌱🌷

Stag's Head Workshop - 28 October

 

Look what we made.... the results of the willow stag head workshop. A fabulous session with individually created pieces which can be further decorated for Christmas or different themes depending on the time of year.

Accompanied by  some great conversations it was a lovely social session. Thanks to those who joined in and to Wendy for all her help and creative guidance 😊

Bath Bomb Workshop

Friday 17 March

Just a few of the bath bombs created tonight using natural ingredients and imagination under the guidance of the multi talented Jules. They need to set before being freed from the moulds

A note from Jules, our host -

Thank you for having me! I had a fabulous time, and met such lovely people. Good luck unmoulding those bombs (and if all else fails...🫙)

Family Cookery

Super Spring Recipes

Saturday 18 March

It was excellent. The children played outside between dishes whilst the adults cleared up. Weather could not have been better. A super spring day allowing us to do spring related recipes! Grateful to Matthew for letting us rent the hall as it was the perfect location.

Looking forward to the next one on 1st April.                BB.

Litter Walk, Adlingfleet

Saturday 25 March

Today's efforts litter picking on Hoggard Lane, Adlingfleet. 12 bags of rubbish, 4 tyres, various other items and a window!. All picked by IEM'S two Bridgets and 'Lee from Adlingfleet'. Get well wishes to the ever reliable Lynne & Dave who unfortunately couldn't make it.

It was rather blustery but we finished just before the downpour. A good soak with home made bath bombs will get rid of any aches .                                            BE.

South African Cuisine Demonstration

Saturday 22 April

Saturday evening saw us welcome Tony Jacobs our chef to demonstrate the preparation of some classic South African dishes. We received excellent instruction and a tasting of Bobotie, 

 "one I made earlier". The evening was rounded off with a portion of Bobotie, prepared on the night, together with recipe cards and ingredients to take home.- Enjoyed by all!

IMG_0944.jpg

What a lovely few hours we've had with Tony, the South African chef, learning how to make Bobotie followed by South African crumpets. All delicious and very social evening. Looking forward to the next one in June - Cape Malay chicken curry with poppy seed flatbread followed by  Melktert.                                             AS.

 Monday 24 April

Having been approached by the school to see if IEM could help with the supply of a new mud kitchen, we said, yes! Keith, our carpenter agreed to design and build it. Kennings quickly supplied the wood and together with a few accessories, hey presto! Keith has done us and the school proud. Delivered to the school on Monday it has caused quite a stir (or two!). A big thank you to Keith for making it and to Richard and his team at Eastwood Groundworks for its transport and delivery to the school.

                                             -------------------------------------

A massive thank you to the Incredible Edible Marshland group for the new EYFS mud kitchen!!!!! The children are loving it and spent most the day playing there yesterday!!

We do appreciate the support from the community!                              RPS.

Lots of lovely copper hares created tonight at Reedness by a fabulous group. Thank you @iemland for inviting me. I'll look forward to returning later in the year for the willow workshops.

Just back from a very absorbing workshop creating characterful hares from copper wire. Guided by Wendy from Twigs and Sprigs we had a lovely evening with our own individual hare to take home at the end, what's not to like 😊

                                                                                                    BE.

Pottery Workshop
4 & 25 February

An absorbing workshop. After some initial guidance from Lee we all managed to make a textured slab-built piece and throw our first pot on a wheel ready for bisque firing.
We will return on February 25th to decorate and glaze our pots!

 

Quilting Course
Friday 10 February
Class 1

A great first quilting class where we were presented with lots of ideas for completing our project. It's not too late to join in but it would be helpful if you have your own sewing machine as only a limited number are available to borrow. A variety of fabrics are available to use.

Please book early to be sure of your place.

Quilting Course
Friday 17 February
Class 2

Quilting week two - very absorbing......and addictive. Sara, our tutor, has a practical approach which is both achievable and effective, building skills week on week.

The workshop returns to Garthorpe village hall next week.

Joint Litter Picks

Saturday 18 February

Saturday 1 April

PHOTO-2023-02-19-13-39-40.jpg

On February 18th 2023 Incredible Edible Marshland joined forces with the Clean Goole Campaign Group to do a combined litter pick. We chose the grass banking area and road verge between Old Goole and Swinefleet, starting at the Old Goole end, which seems to accumulate discarded rubbish on a regular basis. The weather was kind to us, Storm Otto having passed us by, and we had a good turn out of 13 people representing both groups. We collected a total of 33 bags of litter and some larger items in the time we had, which has certainly made a difference, however it was not 'mission accomplished' as we didn't reach Swinefleet.

To complete our mission we are holding another ‘pick’ on Saturday 1 April, 9.30-12 noon where we will start at Swinefleet and work our way towards Old Goole so that all of that area will have been cleaned up.

To celebrate the first collaboration between IEM & CGC and as a thank you to the pickers, IEM arranged for light refreshments at Old Goole Social Club, where we were very well looked after.

Light refreshments will again be provided by IEM at the social club at the conclusion of the ‘pick’. Meet on the riverbank at Swinefleet opposite Quay Lane where parking is available.

It would be great to have some local support from Old Goole again and from Swinefleet….

Will you be there next time??

Joint Litter Pick 2

We did it! Just finished the second litter pick to complete the area between Old Goole and Swinefleet. A fabulous joint effort by Incredible Edible Marshland and

DN14 Litter Pickers (Clean Goole Campaign Group) with Dream Heritage. Today's turnout of 14 people collected 27 bags of rubbish, a pallet and a discarded bucket. 

We retired to Old Goole Social Club for well earned refreshments afterwards where we were very well looked after. A huge thank you to everyone involved on both sessions.
