Tea Blending with Hackney Herbal and Hackney Wicked Women WI

We are very excited to be spending an evening with Hackney Herbal to learn the art of custom tea-blending. Please note that this event is strictly by RSVP only as we need to confirm numbers by the 11th March. Please book through the Get Eventbrite (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/tea-blending-with-hackney-herbal-tickets-96064211643) to let us know you will be attending! Details of cost for member/non-members are below. Hackney Herbal are a local, women owned social enterprise that was founded with the intention of showing people how to incorporate herbs into their lifestyles, for health and improved wellbeing. They grow herbs all across Hackney, as well as foraging across the borough, and it will be these herbs we will be blending with them into custom tea blends. These teas could be for general wellbeing, or be used for more specific uses - such as boosting immunity. You’ll get to take your own personalised tea bags home with you. We’re extremely pleased to be partnering with Hackney Herbal for this unique event. As they are a social enterprise, we will need to contribute a little more to covering their costs - with members paying £5 for the evening and guests £15. PLEASE NOTE - the Eventbrite listing shows that tickets are free - due to differing costs for members/non-members, we will contact you following your booking to confirm payment details rather than taking payment through Eventbrite. Your booking is NOT fully confirmed until we have received payment from you.

Sittings/Sightings Exhibition Unit G Gallery @ The Foyer by White Post Café

Beau Gabriel, who is a Britannia Works-based painter, was the 2019 runner-up in the Hackney WickED Art Prize competition. Here, he presents a solo show of recent works that explore the relationship between classical and modern modes of artistic influence and portrayal. Drawing on high Renaissance Mannerism and Instagram celebrities alike, the work probes how the confluence between these forms of representation finds expression on canvas. Portraits of friends provide a more intimate counterpoint, along with scenes from the artist’s imaginary childhood worlds, which blend art-history references with elements of the fantastic. Private View 18th March - for all gallery newsletter subscribers and for those who sign up on the evening. The Public Opening Days are then: 19, 20, 25, 26, 27 March 12:20-18:00
