Hidden is a collection of photographic work created by individuals who have caring responsibilities. The work demonstrates the uniqueness of photography, its ubiquitous nature offering the time-starved an opportunity to create and be included.
Treasured family photographs evoke memories and instigate discussion around those we care for. Everyday objects are placed under studio lights, elevating it’s status to more accurately demonstrate its vital role in the successful play of a day. Pinhole cameras facilitate image making from household waste with long exposure times allowing for multitasking. A still-life is created from found objects, stumbled across when carrying out daily chores. An unpaired glove becomes the starting point of photographic narrative, real or imagined it’s an alternative to reality. Photography has been used to capture a reflection, allowing the subject to play with how they are seen in the world.

A Life Journey through Creativity By Sylvie Stainton
My inspiration as a painter and sculptor comes from what I observe and feel as it echoes from the world we live in. My work is guided by a deep connection to Nature and its Soul: the outer and inner landscapes, the visible and invisible.
Increasingly what happens in the world emerges through forms, shapes, lines, colours and movement as it expresses itself from the raw materials of the canvases, wood and/or stone.

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.
Mats available on request or bring your own

Beginners Sewing Course XL is an introductory course to learn some foundation sewing skills. This 6-week course gives you three great beginner sewing projects. Why is this called ‘Beginners Sewing Course XL? Because there’s an extra two sewing projects to give lots of extra practice over my original 4-part Beginners Sewing Course.

This class is suitable for Beginners and those wishing to study the basic asanas (poses).
Iyengar yoga is suitable for everyone but is especially well suited to those who are stiff and to athletes. Regular practice will build flexibility and strength, while preserving the health of your joints. Over the term, you will be introduced to a full range of asanas, including standing and seated poses, twists, forward bends, balancings and inversions. You learn the actions required for the more challenging poses in the simpler ones and progress at your own pace, with full instruction and assistance and the use of props (bricks, chairs, blankets etc.) as required.
This class has a male teacher and is particularly popular with male students, although all are welcome!
