  • Fork to Fork Seasonal Supper Club:
    Saturday 27th September 6:30 pm-10:30 pm

    The Hornbeam Cafe invites you to a feast with delicious healthy tasty food – locally sown, grown, picked and cooked!

    We're offering a tasty main course, as well as scrumptious starters and delightful desserts, all for just £15!
    And making use of as much local produce as possible, provided by Organiclea Community Growers.

    The supper club is open from 6.30-10.30pm so you can choose your time to book a table (latest booking 9pm).

    Advance booking is essential - email cafe@hornbeam.org.uk with your name, how many people, and what time.

  • Life Classes:
    Sunday 28th September 3:00 pm-5:00 pm

    Artists of all abilities are very welcome, but booking is essential as places are very limited. This is a wonderful opportunity to make original art in front of a life model and you can book the whole season in advance (8 courses from September to December) or sign up for any week you like. Why not have a delicious lunch (or brunch) at the cafe downstairs first to make it a special Sunday? You only have to bring yourself (and a sketchbook if you wish to take notes) as all materials will be provided.

    These classes will be taught by Jonathan Ellis, an experienced, enthusiastic and encouraging teacher who has developed this philosophy about teaching art:

    “! teach a language, not just how to copy - copying is certainly a skill, but each artist needs to do something rich and rhythmic with their ability. My approach, using led exercises  ensures that both the teacher and the students are always on the edge of discovering something new. We are all in it together, for the first time. Art, like language, has a structure, a pattern, a syntax and the common strands in visual experience can be taught and learnt. It is up to the individual to use that language with the infinite variety of individual expression. This is a liberating approach: we all might not have the skills or inspiration of a great master, but everyone who really wants to draw, can begin to make a connection between their inner and outer worlds and communicate through art."

    Every class starts with a short slideshow to introduce that week’s theme, followed by drawing exercises in a variety of media. Expect the unexpected ….

     

    These courses will be held every other Sunday:

    September 14th & 28th

    October 12th & 26th

    November 9th & 23rd

    December 7th and 21st

    Artworks made on Jonathan’s previous courses at the Hornbeam and elsewhere are exhibited on his blog at:
