The guys from The Basement are coming to Ampfield Village Hall to demonstrate their figure painting techniques on Sunday July 29th. The event will be free ; all we ask is that a donation to Pat’s chosen charity which is The Marie Curie Cancer Trust, any donations will be gratefully received no matter how small.
We have received the itinerary from Kevin, also an email saying that they are all going to donate their fuel payment to the charity that we are supporting. This is extremely generous of them as it means they are coming down from the Bath area and giving their time completely free of charge, and we hope we can repay their kindness by making sure that plenty of us attend the day.

Those attending should bring their own paints and brushes etc, a figure to paint, or selection of figures, these ideally should be 1/35th or larger, and a lamp if they require one.
The basement guys will have a selection of busts for sale if anyone wishes to buy them, they can be viewed on their website.
For lunch we suggests is that participants bring something to share as we do for the xmas meeting.
This is an opportunity not to be missed, a chance to learn from guys who are masters of their art and who, having spent a weekend with them last year, are also good company.
So come along and support them, the club, the charity and learn how to paint figures, I guarantee you will learn something that will improve your modelling.
Our next club meeting will take place on Wednesday 19th January at the Ampfield Village Hall from 8:00pm. The meeting will include our annual photo evening which will be a chance for us to take some good photos of our annual competition entries, which should allow us to upload a large number of new models onto the website for viewing. So, please remember to bring along your competition entry or, if you didn’t enter anything, your latest completed model. Don’t be shy, everything is welcome!!
As it now the end of a long day this is a very quick update on our fantastic day at Airfix. This will be updated over the next few days to tell you the story of the day and what we learnt about this brilliant company.
