Things to Make and Do

Happy Monday! What a lovely, sunny start to the week – fingers crossed it stays that way…

On Tuesday, Andrea Sinclair will be running a pewter casting workshop – creating unique pieces of jewellery using the ancient art of pewter. Thursday is all pottery, Leyla Folwell will be running drop in classes all afternoon and evening for children, beginners and advanced potters.

Have you seen the Dale Chihuly exhibition at the Halcyon Gallery? Chihuly works in glass, creating stunning installation pieces and elevating the medium from craft to groundbreaking fine art. This is a beautiful exhibition of Chihuly’s work, truly breathtaking to see.

It’s the final few days of New York crochet artist Olek’s exhibition, ‘I do not expect to be a mother but I do expect to die alone’. Olek has covered a gallery space and all the objects within it in colourful crochet. A strange and stunning sight to behold, finishing on the 25th of March.

If you missed the Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photography exhibition, there is still a chance to see some of the highlights displayed in the ground of the museum. On the 23rd of March, 80 of the photographs will be displayed on the Museum’s East Lawn – so enjoy them on the grass and in the sun!
