From tea ceilidhs in Breakish and Portree, drop-in workshops at Aros Community Theatre and workshops throughout Skye, it has been a busy few weeks for Tha Seo Math Dhuibh – Good for You.

It was great to see so many of you at our last Afternoon Tea Ceilidh at Skye Camanachd Club in Portree.  We enjoyed some fantastic dancing, singing, eating, drinking and socialising.  We are looking forward to being back at Aros on Monday for our next ceilidh.

Our ceilidhs in south Skye have been very lively and lovely events.  Our next one will be on Friday, 7th December at Talla Bhreacais, Breakish and will include a special dance performance by Meena Watts as well as lots of Christmas cheer!

Rody Gorman led a Haiku writing workshop at Aros on the day that we had a power cut affecting many parts of the Highlands, which lasted the whole day in Portree.  In spite of this, we still had a group of hardy folks who came along and wrote haiku with their jackets on!

On Monday, artist Caroline Dear ran a Ropemaking workshop at Aros.  The group enjoyed learning how to make ropes and took a look at plant materials in the forest.  Join Caroline for some binding and plaiting at a drop-in session at Aros Community Theatre tomorrow from 11am.

We have also been running art workshops at West Highland College and Dunvegan Youth Club with Kate McMorrine, movement sessions at Tigh na Drochaid NHS Resource Centre with Meena Watts, monthly sing-alongs at An Acarsaid Care-home in Broadford and a monthly Gaelic Conversation Group at Tigh na Drochaid with Hannah McDiarmid.

Musician, Rick Taylor is working with Kyleakin Connections, making music and having lots of fun with percussion.  Some of the guys had a go at playing the purple trombone!

The guys at Kyleakin Connections will also be holding a St Andrew’s Family Ceilidh Dance with stovie supper  on Friday, 30th November at Kyleakin Hall with all proceeds going to the charity.  The Breakish Ceilidh Band who play at the Tea Ceilidhs will be providing the music for dancing.
