Things to Make and Do

This post will be the first of a new series called Things to Make and Do  – inspiring places to go and exhibitions to visit over the next week as well as crafty projects and workshops to keep you busy! If you have any more suggestions, please add them to the comments at the end.

So……what are you doing this week?

We have lots on a Art in the Park over the next seven days. Our 2012 timetable of workshops continues this week. Pop in on Monday for woodcarving with Bill Hudson, or start a two day woodworking course on Saturday. Thursdays is pottery with Leyla Folwell, open to beginners or advanced potters! Leyla will also be running a bowl or plate making and decorating workshop on Saturday. Get creative this week!

There are some great exhibitions on in London this week.

A new David Shrigely exhibition is running at the Hayward and Yayoi Kusama’s exhibition at the Tate Modern has just opened.

If you haven’t seen it yet you must check out the Wildlife Photographer of the Year at the Natural History Museum – running until the 11th of March 2012. So many stunning and breathtaking photographs of animals and the natural world.

Make some friendship bracelets!

Oh, what a pretty way to make words and letters out of yarn.

And it’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow! – get in the mood for love with some crafty, hearty projects.

Make a a quick and easy heart banner to decorate the house. A great way to use up old paint samples.

Update an old jumper with some pretty heart patches!
