 “In Neither Mine Nor Yours, the effect of the human footprint on the environment is investigated.The paradox of “man’s destruction of the environment, he needs to survive” rises to the forefront. And with that there is an overarching sense of fragility- both of the body and of the world around us.”

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. (Contact Bridget via the website http://www.blackpark.org.uk/ or on their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/blackparkchapel/

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.
