ART / CREATIVE
COLLAGE WORKSHOPS IN KEMPTOWN :1000 OR 1800
Fed up of the terrible weather and looking for something calming and creative? Artist Seiko Kato is holding Collage Workshops on Mondays and Fridays throughout February. Beginners are welcome. Seiko says: ‘Making a collage is a relaxing and therapeutic process. Cutting elements could be really meditative. Even you think you are not crafty, you’ll be able to bring back home something very unique & personal.” Each session lasts three hours – and there is a choice of morning (1030-1330) or evening (1800-2100). The workshops will be at Seiko’s home (contact her for location details). All materials included – but you are also welcome to bring any materials or photos to include in your collage piece. Email email@example.com to book a place.
Course fee: £35
THE SUSSEX PEASANT OUTSIDE ST GEORGE’S CHURCH: 0800-1800
Want to buy fresh Sussex produce without having to drive all over the county? The Sussex Peasant is a mobile farm shop in an attractive wooden truck, which this morning for the first time is parked outside St George’s Church, Brighton in Kemptown. They sell locally caught fish, fruit and vegetables, home-baked bread, cakes and pastries, cheese and dairy products, beer, wine, juices and flowers.
RUNNING / COMMUNITY
PARK RUN AT EAST BRIGHTON PARK: 0900
A welcoming and very recently established Park Run for all ages and abilities — and on grass rather than hard surface — in East Brighton Park at the bottom of Wilson Avenue. You can walk, jog or run the 5km route around the park — and the organisers will time you so you can chart your future progress. To join in, log onto www.parkrun.org.uk and download a barcode (free) – which you bring along to the Parkrun. If you don’t fancy running, you can also volunteer to help out: email firstname.lastname@example.org Entry: free
