Things to Make and Do

Another week and another list of things to fill it with!

Our 2012 timetable of courses and workshops continues this week. Mondays are woodcarving with the artist Bill Hudson – visit the studio to learn about woodcarving and make your own works of art. If you’re already an expert, feel free to come down to use the studio and our equipment. Thursday is pottery with Leyla Folwell (have you seen her inspiration post?). Classes run in the afternoon for children and in the evening for adults – beginners and advanced. And this Saturday is mosaics – create your own work of art, decorate a mirror or photo frame, make a beautiful splash-back for your kitchen or bathroom or more..!

There are some interesting events and exhibitions opening this week in London which have caught my eye..

30 artists have taken over an empty shop in Wood Street Indoor Market to put on a series of 11 exhibitions over 12 weeks. The exhibition, Turnaround, enters its third week this week. See some art and have a look around the market, a great place for vintage furniture and arts and crafts.

A new exhibition, Weighted Words, opens at the Zabludowicz Collection this Thursday. Weighted Words is an exhibition of art works which explore the power of language, and the effect this can have on the viewer. Sounds very thought-provoking.

Have you ever wanted to see what your face looks like in another dimension? Have a three dimensional photo taken of your face at the Science Museum – learn more about how your face is constructed and help Great Ormond Street Hospital in their treatment of future patients. Find out more about Who Am I?

If you feel like getting crafty this week, how about making some cat shoes (that’s shoes that look like cats, not shoes for you cat..) So cute!

And isn’t this a clever way to display your photographs – as well as being quick and easy to do!

Whatever you get up to this week, have a great time. And if your up to anything exciting this week please share it with us!
