Things to Make and Do

Happy Monday again. I hope you had a lovely weekend, and are looking forward to the week ahead!

If you’re looking for something crafty and creative to do this week, then we have much to offer you at the Art in the Park studios. Tonight is woodcarving with Bill Hudson – a great class of the art of woodcarving and a chance to make your own sculpture and objects.Tuesday is the art of pewter casing with Andrea Sinclair where you can make your own piece of beautiful and unique jewellery. Thursday afternoon and evening is full of pottery with Leyla Folwell, with classes running suitable for any age and level of experience. And this Friday is the first of a new sewing class with Jill Newman – an eco-fashion and textiles club where you can try your hand at recycling and up-cycling, deconstructing , “make-do-and-mend”, experiment with re-used/junk materials! To see our full list of classes and book your place please click here!

There are currently some fantastic exhibitions running in London, if you want to soak up some culture this week. A photography exhibition showcasing the work of 37 international arists has recently opened at the Saatchi Gallery, “Out of Focus: Photography“.

Or if you want to enjoy your photography in the sunshine, the Natural History is displaying highlights from the fantastic Wildlife Photography of the Year Exhibition in the grounds of the museum.

This weekend is the second annual London Coffee Festival! Celebrating coffee with music, samples demonstrations and tastings. Yum yum! What’s more, 50% of all ticket sales will be donated to Project Waterfall, a clean water initiative currently providing communities in Tanzania’s Mbulu District. Hurrah!

Looking for a quick and easy ways to add some pretty and colourful touches to your home, how about giving these d.i.y. candle holders a go?

And I think I might have to make this scrumptious looking lemon-blueberry yoghurt loaf this weekend – who’s with me?

Have a wonderful week, whatever you’re doing!
