The sun is shining and there are plenty of great things to do, visit and create this week.
Art in the Park’s workshops and classes continue this week. Tonight the wonderful Bill Hudson opens the studio to teach woodcarving. If you’re already a keen carver, come by to use our space and equipment to produce your own work. Pewter casting with Andrea is back this Tuesday – learn the ancient art of pewter casting and make your own piece of jewellery from scratch! Thursday is pottery with Leyla Folwell. Classes in the afternoon are open to children, and in the evening a drop in class is running for beginner and advanced students. You can book your place and see the full timetable of classes here.
We’re really happy to be based in the wonderful Burgess Park (which will be even more wonderful when the new regeneration is completed!) This week, the Friends of Burgess Park are welcoming volunteers to join the Burgess Park food project workday on 11th March, from 1pm to 3pm. They’ll be planting an edible hedge from the Woodland Trust – sloes, rose hips and crab apples. A great way to get outdoors and get involved in the community.
It’s the final week of the Wildlife Photography of the Year exhibition at the Natural History Museum. A stunning exhibition of photos, by turns breathtaking, charming and tragic, a must see!
South London Women Artists are holding a small exhibition of work at Dulwich Library until the end of March. View these original works of art displayed among the stacks of books – inspiring and a great excuse to visit the library.
And this week is your last chance to enjoy Zarina Bhimji’s exhibition at Whitechapel Gallery. A beautiful exhibition of photography and film installation exploring landscape and locations of India and West Africa.
And don’t forget to get crafty and creative this week. I love these paint-dipped wooden spoons from House of Earnest – they look so pretty (and easy to do!)
Whatever you do this week, feel inspired and creative. And enjoy the sun – if it stays around!
