Every season hath its pleasures; Spring may boast her flowery prime, Yet the vineyard's ruby treasures Brighten Autumn's soberer time. Thomas Moore Our November tasting is all about those autumnal wines that you'd love to drink while cuddling by the fire, after a walk in the woods, or following a rugby match. The wines that truly warm your soul. Stories include how a family made top bubbles from a jumbled-up Burgundy plot, a former rugby player who won a coveted oenology (wine science!) award, and physicist-turned- winemaker who works tirelessly to keep his precious grapes out of reach of wild boars. Perhaps it will be a fruity chardonnay that takes you halfway to heaven, a silky pinot noir from an environmentalist and political junkie, or a white wine for people who only drink red wine. Whatever it is, prepare to be pleasantly surprised.

All guests will be allowed to select their own tassel color, wire material (either sterling silver or 14kt gold-filled) and decorative beads (freshwater pearls or semi-precious gemstones). We're so happy to have Marissa Irwin for this workshop, jewellery making runs in her family.

If unsure on creative activity, you can always buy the gift of creativity for yourself or someone else here :). New classes and dates regularly announced.

Join us to learn how to create 2 of your own unique Japanese hanging plant arrangements. 'Kokedama' translates from the Japanese words for moss ('koke') and ball ('dama') - it is the art of freeing the plant from a container and planting it in a moss covered soil/clay ball. Kokedama evolved from the art of Bonsai - carefully made to brighten up Japanese homes, with people commonly creating 'string gardens' in which hanging Kokedama beautifully fill an empty space of a room. Kokedama are viewed as living art, with every one having the potential to be a completely unique creation . Kokedama also have a practicality to them as the external moss has the advantage of acting as a sponge, which you can dip in water every week and it will slowly release water to the roots of your plant.

Modern Calligraphy for Beginners - PL

I signed up to the calligraphy class on my own and I didn't really know what to expect before coming. I need not have worried though, as I was greeted in the studio with a smiley face by Sam, the co-owner of M.Y.O, who welcomed me to have a look around while I waited for the rest of the group. He offered me tea and coffee, and said I could grab something from the bar upstairs and bring it down if I wanted. Near and Far bar upstairs had happy hour on too (£3.75 a cocktail) The class was run by Polly, who was really great. She gave us a bit of background about calligraphy before going over technique. She was relaxed yet attentive which was ideal. Even when I was blobbing ink all over the page she was encouraging, and in the end I came away with a little card that I had written on in a small frame. I am definitely keen to come back to M.Y.O and also to join Polly's map illustration class which looks fab. A lovely evening and would highly recommend.
