A big thank you to Bridget Drukker for inviting us to join the artists who have enjoyed classes given by Jood Gough at Black Park Chapel for a seasonal treat!

Warmed by under floor heating and a huge wood pellet boiler, the meeting room enfolded us all as if in a blanket. Hot drinks and mince pies accompanied an opportunity to see the portraits and life drawings the group had created under Jood’s supervision. The work room is large and well lit and served by kitchen facilities and has all been renovated to top environmental standards.





After meeting some of the artists, (Josie included!) Bridget took us on a tour of the building. img_0937

The Chapel area is huge and light and again with  underfloor heating and beautiful pews plus a large range of equipment for musical performance makes the venue ideal for many types of celebrations, including all kinds of musical and performance events and ideal too for weddings.

This amazing community resource boasts two exciting sensory rooms full equipped for much fun. Rob and I had a go at several of the sensory items.



A full programme of events is mapped out for the coming year and, as mentioned here on the blog Jood’s Life Drawing by Candle Light project begins Wednesday 7th December – you do need to book. Come along to the Carol Concert on Friday 16th December too!


Finally it’s not always winter at Black Park and there’s lots going on in the warmer months. Look forward to seeing you there very soon!


And thanks again Bridget for the invitation!
