Laughter Yoga Workshop with Joe Hoare
Saturday 10th February 2018 14:00-16:30 £25
We are absolutely delighted to be welcoming Joe Hoare to Kingshill House for his laughter yoga workshop.
How does laughter yoga boost happiness, mindfulness, connection and wellbeing?
Laughter yoga is an interactive, dynamic, connecting yoga experience. It is energising, it brings you into the 'now' and stimulates your overall sense of wellbeing. It is also a relaxing and peacefulness-inducing experience - an antidote to stress, anxiety, over-thinking, procrastinating and much more.
There is no fake or forced laughter, nor is anyone put on the spot or required to perform.
It includes movement and stretching exercises, deep breathing exercises and priactising being in the 'Now'.
"Joe is an authentic healer of the heart...his natural charisma brings laughter and light to the eyes, ears and soul."
Digital Photography Workshop - 'Get Off Auto'
Saturday 24th February 2018 10:00-15:00 £50
If you have only used auto mode or tried other settings on your camera with disappointing results this workshop is for you! Tutor Alan Law will give you a good understanding of photography and how to use your camera on manual settings in just one day. You will have plenty of hands-on experience combined with handouts and projects to work on putting into practice what you have learned.
You will learn about ISO (film speed), aperture (F. stops) and shutter speed. The understanding of these 3 elements will transform your images. You will be in control.
You will also learn how to add interest to your photographs with advice on composition as you produce a range of images.
You must bring your own digital SLR/bridge camera and laptop to download, view and edit photographs to the workshop. Please also bring a packed lunch.
Colour Mixing Workshop in Watercolour
Saturday 24th February 2018 10:00-16:00 £75
Can't get the colour you want - do your greens look gaudy and your greys dull and boring? Blue and yellow make green but which green? Maybe the green you mixed has turned to mud. Why?
In this fun and lively workshop you will look at the basic principles of colour mixing with tutor Sheena Maynard, learning how to mix the colours you want. You will look at how colours behave - some are transparent and staining whilst others are thick and chalky - and understand how to tell the difference. We may even get time to put the theory to the test by painting a simple landscape.
A materials list will be sent upon booking.
