A 3 week, Visual Audio Hub within the 3 galleries at St Margaret’s House – a residency between 3 AV artists to explore experiment and dive into the realms of lights visuals and sounds to develop immersive experience art forms.
The start of a collaboration to give space and time to three AV artists who normally meet and work on events in the music industry. The short timescale of Festivals and music events makes it always difficult for visual artists to test and develop their art forms, the set-up is short and the opportunity for musicians to have pre-production work rarely occurs.
This 3 week residency will be the opportunity for each artist to share and use the 3 galleries setting up their own installations inviting musicians and other artists to collaborate and todevelop particular aspects of their practices.

Sewing knit fabric with a domestic sewing machine can be tricky. But it’s really easy with an overlocker. Many people who have overlockers only use them to neaten the edges of their work but they can do so much more. This short class will show you how to construct a garment, in this case a sweet tunic dress, almost entirely on an overlocker. I designed this tunic dress myself as I couldn’t find anything I liked in the shops. It’s a style I’ve since made over and over. I now have about 5 of them in varying lengths. It’s an easy-to-wear, easy to wash item that has become a staple of my wardrobe and I can’t be without.

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.
