The students are all painting undergraduates, but this is a diverse group with a range of media on show including video, sculpture, drawing and painting. They have been wholly responsible for organising and presenting this exhibition which has required collaboration, cooperation and a degree of compromise from all involved. All skills that will help the students in their professional life after Art School.

People Know How’s latest project supports people to realise their full potential.
Re:Connect is a service that provides free access to laptops along with volunteers to help people navigate online services.
At our Digital Drop-ins, we build up people’s confidence and ask them what they want to get from computers and the internet. We want people to know that if they want to do someone online but don’t know where to start, they can come to a drop in session to get some helpful advice. Whether they want to create a CV, find a cheaper utility provider, create an email account or look at entertainment we are there to help you do that.
Our volunteers come from a range of backgrounds with a variety of skills and experience, and we believe that people know how to find the answers to their questions
over a friendly conversation.
There are two drop-ins located at our office at 5.03 St. Margaret’s House.
Thursdays from 11am – 2pm
Saturdays from 11am – 1pm (1 st , 3 rd , 5 th Saturday of the month)

Ashtanga is a dynamic, very energising yoga style.
A great way to start the new year!
This class is an introduction to the Ashtanga yoga method, we will finish the class with relaxation in Savasana (corpse pose)
Please notice that this class is still tough, the difference between this class and a regular full led Ashtanga class is that the pace is slower, as I take the time to explain the postures in more detail.
