Casting for Beginners

Glenbuchat Group March 2016 

Julie Cowie

Laura Selway invited me to do a casting workshop at the Aberdeenshire Group that meets regularly in Glenbuchat.  I was pleased to have been invited because casting is ‘my thing’, because I’m impressed by the activities of this group and to try out the casting workshop.

In the morning we tried out cuttlefish casting, a slightly hit and miss affair, but lovely when it works.
