Not Normal: An Expression of the Self by Jamie King

Not Normal: An Expression of the Self by Jamie King

Monday 3 May - Friday 21 May
All Day

Self-portraits painted from the beginning of lockdown to the present day. An exploration of the self from my perspective of having schizophrenia whilst experiencing lockdown. All painted using oil on canvas and are approximately 50cm x 60cm. Observing lockdown rules led to isolation and separation from family, friends, and groups that provide vital support with face-to-face contact. This has brought a new and unwelcome ‘normality’. Finding coping strategies has been invaluable in dealing with hallucinatory voices and heightened anxiety. Fortunately, having the opportunity to paint and sculpt has led to a semblance of ‘normality’ for me.

To the Moors over Water by Sheena Phillips

To the Moors over Water by Sheena Phillips

Friday 7 May - Friday 21 May
All Day

Walking the same path every day gave me so many ideas and time to think about the places I loved.  I found my passion again for painting atmospheric and slightly abstracted landscapes.

This group includes some larger statement pieces and some mid-sized ones which would fit well in any room.

Caught on Canvas

Friday 21 May - Friday 4 June
All Day

An online exhibition by Doodle Snout.

A selection of oil and watercolour portrait pieces depicting core moments from film and television moments over the last 50 years. The works in this exhibit are intended to capture the essence of each film through portrait work by focusing on the colours, the compositions, and the characters that mean all the difference between a psychedelic 70s classic, a cyberpunk 80s underdog, or a ground-breaking modern masterpiece.

The 1-day Refresher sewing class will be a useful reminder to brush up your sewing and dressmaking techniques if you used to sew but have got a bit rusty.  I’ll take you through some common sewing tasks that you’ll need if you’d like to start sewing again, and throw in lots of the tips for an expert finish.

Level 2: Beginners – Improvers. You should have done some sewing before but need a reminder of the foundation techniques.
