    The maximum distance we usually do is 15 miles for the round trip, but as its tailored to the abilities of those who turn up, it can be considerably shorter.

    Everyone is welcome.
    This event is free.

  • Life Classes:
    Sunday 9th November 3:00 pm-5:00 pm

    Venue: The Hornbeam

    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:

  • Life Classes:
    Sunday 7th December 3:00 pm-5:00 pm

    Venue: The Hornbeam

    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:

  • Walthamstow Family Bike Club Ride:
    Sunday 8th February 1:00 pm-5:00 pm

    Venue: Ancient House at Orford Road/Church Lane junction

    Join us for a fun, slow & sociable ride around some of the green spaces in Waltham Forest.

    Meet at 1pm at Orford Road/Church Lane junction E17 (next to the old postbox near St. Mary’s Church - see map below); we aim to get back no later than 5pm.

    We usually stop along the way for a picnic snack, so apart from a bicycle and any children you can round up, bring some water and something to eat. We usually seek a respectably long refreshment break at a cafe as long as the majority are in favour (they always have been so far!).

    The maximum distance we usually do is 15 miles for the round trip, but as its tailored to the abilities of those who turn up, it can be considerably shorter.

    Everyone is welcome.
    This event is free.

In this way abundance of a certain crop at our growing site is celebrated and shared!

    Join us for a fun, slow & sociable ride around some of the green spaces in Waltham Forest.

    Meet at 1pm at Orford Road/Church Lane junction E17 (next to the old postbox near St. Mary’s Church - see map below); we aim to get back no later than 5pm.

    We usually stop along the way for a picnic snack, so apart from a bicycle and any children you can round up, bring some water and something to eat. We usually seek a respectably long refreshment break at a cafe as long as the majority are in favour (they always have been so far!).

    The maximum distance we usually do is 15 miles for the round trip, but as its tailored to the abilities of those who turn up, it can be considerably shorter.

    Everyone is welcome.
    This event is free.

    - Throughout the day, every month we try to celebrate a specific preparation of a different seasonal vegetable – our very own ‘sagra’ calendar. ‘Sagra’ can be a celebration of a certain dish or product, of a vegetable or fruit, a wine, a type of preparation. In this way abundance of a certain crop at our growing site is celebrated and shared!
    - A site tour takes place at a designated time in the afternoon.
    - Timetabled skill-share from 2-3pm.

    The day runs from 12-4pm – drop by at anytime or stay for the day – we break for lunch between 1.30-2pm ... bring a packed lunch and join us.

    And from April through to June get a helping hand with your garden: buy plants and compost to see you through the summer.

    - There is always a group gardening activity to participate in – and learn more about how we grow food at our site, 12-4pm
    - Throughout the day, every month we try to celebrate a specific preparation of a different seasonal vegetable – our very own ‘sagra’ calendar. ‘Sagra’ can be a celebration of a certain dish or product, of a vegetable or fruit, a wine, a type of preparation. In this way abundance of a certain crop at our growing site is celebrated and shared!
    - A site tour takes place at a designated time in the afternoon.
    - Timetabled skill-share from 2-3pm.

    The day runs from 12-4pm – drop by at anytime or stay for the day – we break for lunch between 1.30-2pm ... bring a packed lunch and join us.

    And from April through to June get a helping hand with your garden: buy plants and compost to see you through the summer.
