Nobility Pursuit

Friday 14 August - Friday 28 August
All Day

Nobility Pursuit is a developmental ONLINE exhibition in which St Margaret’s House tenant and artist James Alexander McKenzie showcases some paintings which are part of an ongoing body of work. McKenzie’s allegorical painting’s principle interest is Being. Influenced by different philosophical attitudes, his whimsical paintings meditate joyfully on its different manifestations, drawing largely from personal experience. His work’s chief motivations are humility, compassion and simplicity.

Friday 21 August - Friday 4 September
12:00 am - 12:00 pm

This ONLINE exhibition showcases the work of four artists who have worked throughout the COVID-19 lockdown and responded to it in different ways.  The last four months have left some of us with a sense of severance from our connection with everyday activities and a break from our usual practice. However, our need to reconnect and communicate with each other and audiences remains strong.  The work we show is our attempt to overcome the disconnect imposed by the viral pandemic and respond to our precious world.

MYO Beeswax Wraps Class - Join the Zero Waste Revolution

Wednesday 26 August
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Learn how to make Beeswax Food Wraps and go home with a new skill, 3 wraps and feeling empowered to cut down on your plastic use.

What are beeswax food wraps?
They’re a natural eco-friendly alternative to cling film and tin foil for wrapping food, cheese, bread, covering bowls and jars. Perfect for school lunch boxes and food on the go. They keep food fresh, are naturally anti-bacterial, can be reused, refreshed and composted at end of life.
Your upcycled cotton wraps will be made using organic ingredients: beeswax, jojoba oil and tree resin.

What will you do at the workshop?
We have done all the hard work so you don’t have to. Rose will guide you step-by-step through choosing fabric, the ingredients, applying the wax mixture, setting, finishing and maintenance. By the end of the workshop you’ll be making wraps like a pro. It’s learning in a social, fun and relaxing way with like-minded people.

Why take a beeswax wrap workshop?
If you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint, reduce waste to landfill, reduce chemical-laden plastic food packaging or looking for ways to become more zero waste then this is for you.

Rose has trained over 1000 people to make their own wraps with her tried and tested recipe and method. If you would like to arrange your own private group, she is happy to host groups of 6 – 12 people at her studio or will travel to you. Larger groups can be accommodated.
Lets banish cling film from the kitchen and benefit our health and the planet.
This is a fun and educational creative experience.
