Creative Writing Group 
Tuesday 11th June
2.30pm - 4pm 


Our Creative Writing Group is a friendly, relaxed session to help you get writing. We will maybe do some writing exercises and share our endeavours. The sharing of writing can be either what we have produced during the brief writing exercise or could be something that we have worked on at home.

Our prompt for our next meeting coincides with the theme for our current exhibition, Our Fragile Land

Even if you are not attending our Writing Group, and are inspired to put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard) please email us your creative response and we will include it in our Big Book of Creativity.

Vegetable Fermentation Workshop
Saturday 28th September
11am - 1pm

£40
 

Join us for a practical workshop with Hannah Taylor from Gut Feelings Kombucha to learn two different techniques for fermenting vegetables - traditional sauerkraut and fermented vegetables in brine.

 

Studies in regards to the health benefits of regular consumption of fermented vegetables continues to grow. On top of this, fermentation is an amazing preservation technique to make the most of the high harvest seasons in Scotland and reduce food waste. Hannah looks forward to sharing her knowledge around the microbiological wonders that are happening during fermentation and how this links to our gut health - and overall health as a result!
