As the seasons in fashion can change in a flash where one minute high street stores are stocking bikinis and sun glasses, the next its jumpers and coats. So it can be with life, seasons change.
However the question you have to ask yourself is, do you change with the seasons or do you let the seasons change you?
Whats the difference you ask? Well changing with the seasons its an active decision where you adjust to a new environment.
Whereas letting the seasons change you is passive, its trudging through without utilising the season you are in. 🌸🌼🌻🍂🍃
Another self care routine I've really been embracing of late is taking time out during the day to read - even if it's in my lunch break.
After university I couldn't really get back into reading as I had consumed so many in-depth (sometimes interesting) intense texts & after uni it was a definite no thank you for a while.
Now, I'm always on the hunt for well designed, inspirational reads that help solve a problem (despite having no shelf space to put said books).
What have you been reading lately?
So exciting to follow the gardening progress of Georgina Barney. We look forward to the ‘Spin, Dye, Weave’ workshop hosted by @georgina_barney
next weekend in our Weave Studio.
The workshop will introduce you to wool crafts and teach you about how to spin yarn from fleece, natural dyeing and weaving on a frame loom. It will be a weekend of skill-share and connecting with natural materials.
To enquire about spaces for the 18th and 19th of August, or if you’re interested in taking part in future workshops, please email email@example.com

Our next bi-monthly comics event will be on Tuesday the 14th August 2018, 7:30pm at
Nottingham Writers’ Studio.
Matthew Robinson is a Senior Art Technician on the Animation course at NTU. He spends his days trying to convince students that light and shadow are in fact the most important elements in any story telling process. Using examples from film, animation, comics and photography, he'll be explaining the fundamentals of lighting, shadow and colour, and their importance in the development of character, scene and story. He'll be calling on Adam Willis for an illustrator's take and some live drawing, and tweaking the lighting in studio photographs of action figures to demonstrate how to bring out the character in your players. Hand-drawn image or glossy Photoshopped plate, the fundamentals of light and shade apply across the board.
Ian Edginton is a prolific writer of comics with a sideline in novels and audio dramas. He counts Dark Horse, Marvel, Titan and 2000 AD among his regular publishers, and has pounded the keys for Batman, Judge Dredd, Alien, Wolverine, Star Trek, Warhammer and a host of other franchises. His most fulfilling collaborations have been with our own Matt Brooker (who will introduce the evening), notably on Leviathan and H.G. Wells’ The War of the Worlds, but Ian is possibly best known for his adaptations of The Picture of Dorian Gray and a clutch of Sherlock Holmes stories for SelfMadeHero. Oddly enough his collaborator on those was another local, I.N.J. Culbard. Ian is a double Eisner nominee and knows ‘the biz’ inside out. No idea what he’s gonna talk about. Just know this is gonna be an unmissable evening.
