Eyes down on a Saturday morning at John F Kennedy School

April 22 2017 saw the unusual sight of eight volunteers from ADFAS attending a training session on the use of the printing press acquired for this local school using our Gift Aid funding.   

The only one who really knows what she is doing is Nicola Collins, Head of Art at JFK School! However, our engrossed participiants had a fascinating and enjoyable four hour session.

Nicola has asked all ADFAS members who have any old and spare Yellow Pages magazines (these have very thin paper and when cut up are excellent for handling the prints during the printing process) to give them to any Committee people so that her Art Dept pupils can benefit from using them!
