Furniture Painting Workshop

Saturday 9 November
10:00 am - 2:30 pm

What is the furniture painting class?
Our furniture painting class is a great opportunity to relax and have some creative fun with an old or unloved piece of furniture that’s needing a new look. We reckon you’ll be amazed at what a lick of paint can do bring a piece back into style and make it loveable again!
You’ll be welcomed into our studio, a creative space with a friendly and supportive environment. We’ll guide you through the process of furniture painting, including giving you our hints and tips on the products that we prefer using, how to improve your brushwork and how to avoid and fix the common mistakes that happen when you’re painting furniture.
Please bring a small item of wooden furniture to paint or you can pre-order a piece for £20 and we will source it for you e.g. a small side table, coffee table, magazine rack, dining chair, small cabinet or a stool.

What will you do in this class?
During the class, you’ll learn how to prepare your furniture for painting and about the different types of paints that can be used. You’ll mix up your own chalk paint and we’ll help you practice and refine your brush work skills.
You’ll learn the basic techniques required to achieve a clean, finished look for your furniture. For those interested in the shabby chic look, you’ll be shown how to distress your furniture and how two tones if you want to work with a couple of contrasting colours. If you want a more funky or retro look, we can show you how to use masking tape to create colourful designs.
Finally you’ll finish and protect your furniture with a soft furniture wax or a varnish.

Why take the furniture painting class?
You’ll gain access to paints, brushes, waxes and varnishes and can experiment in a friendly and supportive environment. This is a relaxed and social class.
Learn from our experienced tutors knowledge, experience and helpful tips, including the most common mistakes and challenges that furniture painters face and how to fix them. Best of all you get to transform a transform a piece of your furniture and see how others transform their pieces too.
By the time you finish our furniture painting class, you’ll be fully equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to confidently use the paints and waxes on your own to upcycle more furniture. Be warned… furniture painting is addictive!

Light refreshments will be provided on the day. You’ll also be given the remainder of one small pot of chalk paint that you’ve mixed and instructions to take home with you. Join us and learn more about the art of upcycling!

We will source small pieces for furniture for you for £20

MYO Cloth Sanitary Pad - Join the Zero Waste Revolution

Saturday 16 November
10:30 am - 12:30 pm

What are DIY Reusable Cloth Sanitary Pads?
They’re an eco-friendly alternative to single-use sanitary pads. You can make a pad that suits you best. From regular monthly ones, panty liners as back up for your moon cup, post partum or stress incontinence pads or night pads. They’re wonderfully soft, made to measure and best of all, washable, ready for using again and again, month after month, year after year. Perfect for reducing health risks, reducing your plastic use, saving money and diverting from landfill.

What will I do at this class?
Soak up the knowledge and have fun sewing our fabulous tried and tested pad design from textiles you probably already have at home. We’ve done all the research, testing and hard work so you don’t have to. What shape? Which fabrics are best? What size? How many layers? Best care options? By the end of the class you’ll take home your very own made-to-measure pad and the skills to make many more plus the knowledge to look after them.

Why take this class?
It’s empowering! Get in control of what goes next to your skin, ditch the plastic and become a more conscious consumer.
It’s healthier, you’ll be reducing your exposure to synthetic fibres, dioxins, wood pulp that’s bleached in chlorine dioxide, leaching plastics, sodium polyacrylate crystals, artificial fragrances, adhesives and chemical gels. Reducing your risk of yeast infections, toxic shock syndrome, ovarian and cervical cancer and contact dermatitis. Many users even report reduced menstrual cramps.
It saves you money, around £13/month.

Yes, it’s a small step towards reducing your impact on the planet but each step adds up to a big impact. Us girls use 12-17,000 hygiene products in our lifetime, some are incinerated, most go to landfill and some are flushed- around 700,000 panty liners, 2.5 million tampons and 1.4 million sanitary towels in the UK every single day!
It’s learning in a social, fun and relaxing way with like-minded people.
They make great eco gifts!

Yoga for creativity

Wednesday 20 November
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

This series of beginner-friendly yoga classes has been designed to help you tap into your creativity and support you in finding your artistic outlet. The mind, body and soul are inseparable: each affects the other, as well as being affected by the outside world. In these yoga classes, we will move mindfully with the breath to become more aware of our body, thoughts and emotions. This helps us cultivate observational skills, which are key for being open to fresh inspiration.
As you practise awareness and experience new sensations in yoga class, notice how this starts to spill over into your day to day life. The practice encourages you to be confident and brave while keeping a sense of fun and light-heartedness. Yoga and creativity are naturally linked, both being strongly connected to expression of your instinct, or inner voice. Therefore these tailored yoga classes are sure to be the ideal support for your creative journey.
You are encouraged to bring a pen and paper to write down any ideas and to begin cultivating the habit of getting your thoughts out into the world.

Wednesdays 6.00-7.00 pm
