Shine on: Introduction To Resin Art

IMG_20180704_153215-01.jpeg

Step away from your digital distractions and enter the magical, mindful world of resin. In this class you will create a piece of colourful, shiny art using this medium known as 'liquid glass'.

Artist Unusual Girl will lead you through the utterly absorbing process of mixing, colouring and pouring resin. Watch in wonder as you drip inks, sprinkle powders and see how the resin reacts.
Making resin art is a fun, unpredictable creative activity with fantastic results even for beginners.

It's also messy, needs quite a bit of kit and can be a little intimidating to start. Which is why Unusual Girl is here to give you the benefit of her years of experience and free reign to experiment!

Artworks will be ready to collect from the Paxton Centre from Tuesday onwards. This is because resin is liquid when you pour it and takes about a day to harden ('cure').

All materials will be provided but please dress for mess from top to toe! Book your place by following the link here..

10.jpg

Having a busy lifestyle, do you feel you can't be as healthy as you would like? Do you suffer from lack of energy, work stress, fatigue, poor quality sleep, lack of productivity and weight-gain from unhealthy lifestyle patterns?

The workshop will be interactive with games and activities and you will get a chance to network with other like-minded people afterwards.

So, come along to this session and learn:

- How making practical changes actually help you to better control your wellbeing and health.

- Techniques to manage your thoughts and create better outcomes.

- Tips to boost your energy levels and vitality.

- The best apps to inspire, motivate and ensure your mental and physical health gets as much as attention as your career and family.

- The secret to managing stress levels and dealing with difficult situations.

- Easy recipes to help you manage your eating and a list of foods that will provide all the nutrients and achieve a balanced diet.

- Different workouts that will require 15- 25 minutes per day maximum.

Snack and drinks will be provided and you will leave with a useful and amazing GOODIE BAG as well!

DIY Solar Workshop

5882476_orig.jpg

Ever wondered just what goes on in inside a solar panel? Ready to take clean energy into your own hands? Stumped by watts, amps and volts? Fascinated by the future of power?

If you are interested in knowing more about renewable energy systems, this one day, very practical workshop, will allow you to create a small solar power generator to charge your phone (and other USB devices) from the sun, that you can take home at the end of the day. You will learn what energy is and what it can do, and gain a hands-on understanding of the electrical basics: current, voltage, resistance, power, and series and parallel circuits.
During the workshop you will build your own solar panel from reclaimed materials, learn how to test it, and connect the charging components required to provide power on the go.
Our facilitators will guide you through the making process, while exploring the energy challenges we are facing, and what possible solutions might look like.

The workshop will start at 10am, and finish at 5pm (or maybe sooner, depending on how fast you can solder).
