Soap Making Workshop


This course will introduce you to the art of cold process soap making. Courses usually start around 10am with an informal chat about soap over essential morning refreshments: think locally ground coffee, tea, spring water from Dartmoor springs, handmade cakes and fresh croissants. After ‘breakfast’ we will talk you through your first batch (roughly 8 bars each) and you will watch a quick interactive demonstration of soap making. The workshop will then be yours and you will be free to make two batches of soap using your own combination of essential oils and botanicals from our extensive range. During the course of the day we will learn about: ·         The history and chemistry behind cold process soap making ·         Equipment needed and where to get it ·         Safety measures required ·         Which oils, butters and waxes can be used and the benefits each can offer ·         How to blend essential oils ·         What moulds can be used ·         Using botanicals from your own garden to decorate/colour your soaps naturally ·         How to treat and store your soap once it’s made ·         Advanced techniques such as ‘swirling’ or using goat’s milk ·         Troubleshooting We will provide refreshments however we do ask that you bring your own packed lunch and wear long sleeved clothes you don’t mind getting a little mucky in. We would be very grateful if you could let us know of any allergies beforehand. Please could you also: ·         Bring an apron and old towel ·         Wear shoes rather than open-toe sandals. You will leave with your own creations (approx. 16 bars), 2 reusable moulds, your own instruction folder with comprehensive notes, suggested recipes, an info sheet on where to source materials and hopefully a mind bursting with wonderful ideas for future batches! All, in all a great day out either for you or a friend as a special gift! £2 from every place booked on this course is dontacted to Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust.

Lino Printing FABRIC


How lovely would it be to create your own beautiful hand printed fabric?! This workshop will enable you to produce a unique stamp which you can use over and over again, so as well as leaving the studio with a hand printed bag and tea-towel you can also use it to print at home! Cushions, curtains and aprons are some of the things I've used my lino carvings for. Come along and spend a relaxed morning creating, meeting new people and printing at the beautiful Kigbeare Manor Farm. An afternoon workshop from 2pm - 5pm, aimed at beginners but all levels are welcome. Guidance at every step to create your own beautiful hand printed tea-towels and tote bags . Once your design is created on the lino, it can be cut and carved to create bold and experimental designs. Using specialist carving tools, a combination of broad strokes and detailed fine cuts, the lino block is moulded to create a relief print of your desired image.Paint is then applied with a roller and using a relief press or burnishing tool, you are able to create multiple prints, which can either be abstract, used as a repeated pattern or that of a figurative design. The cost of the workshop includes materials and refreshments, just bring along an apron and some inspirational designs to help begin the process. ***one morning workshop on the 17th March 10am-1pm***

Hungrytown


After more than a decade of world-wide touring and three album releases, Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson - otherwise known as the folk duo Hungrytown -- have earned a reputation for the quality and authenticity of their songwriting: "It's great to hear an act eschew sentimentality in favour of honesty and to prove that you don't have to go raiding the memory of others to find the stuff that really good songs are made of," writes Jedd Beaudoin of Popmatters. Lyricist Hall is credited with compositions "that sound as timeless as any traditional songs" (Northern Sky, UK) while producer/multi-instrumentalist/husband Ken Anderson is lauded for his "remarkable affinity for instrumental embellishment" (No Depression) and for crafting Hungrytown's "gorgeous vocal harmonies" (Folk and Roots, UK). Hall and Anderson met in New York City, where they had already been performing regularly; Hall as a jazz singer, and Anderson as a drummer for a variety of garage bands. Their introduction to folk music came later, when a close friend -- who died young due to a tragic misdiagnosis -- entrusted to them her collection of 1960s folk albums and her guitar (which has since been featured on all of their albums). Inspired by the grit and true-to-life experiences she heard in these traditional ballads, Hall was inspired to write the lyrics that later became her first songs, aided by Anderson's flair for musical arrangement. Soon afterwards, Hall released two solo albums, Rebecca Hall Sings! (2000) and Sunday Afternoon (2002), both produced by Anderson. In the winter of 2003, the duo quit their boring desk jobs, moved to the green hills of Vermont, and decided to pursue a full-time career as touring musicians. They released their first CD, Hungrytown, in 2008; Any Forgotten Thing in 2011; and Further West in 2015. The couple continue to spend more than half of each year on the road, especially roads in North America, Europe and New Zealand. Hungrytown's music has received extensive radio airplay worldwide and has appeared on several television shows, including the Independent Film Channel's hit series, Portlandia.
