No summer plans yet? Find your new hobby with us! We have partnered up with Obby, a teaching collective of creative teachers and ‘makers’ to bring you a timetable of unique and unusual classes this summer. 27-30 Victory Parade, E20 1FS will be used as a blank canvas for activities.
First off, on Saturday 23rd June as part of East Village’s Wellness Day, Obby will be hosting its first workshops around the theme of wellbeing. From 11:30am – 12:30pm a ‘Mindfulness through Mandala’ class will teach you how to make a spiritual patterned weave to aid their meditation. From 2pm to 3:30pm, the Botanical Boys will be running a Terrarium Masterclass; those who attend will be able to take home their own handmade garden in jar to enhance their homes. Sounds fun, isn’t it?
As a plus, you can get £10 off if you book in advance! Visit www.obby.co.uk and use the code: GETLIVING10 at checkout.
Charlotte Fletcher, General Manager at East Village, says: “With courses on everything from butchery to superhero cake decorating, meditation and mindfulness to handbag designing, there’s bound to be something to peak everyone’s interests. It’s a great chance to learn a new skill or simply spend a few hours with some very talented people and have a bit of fun!”
Tom Batting, founder of Obby, says: “Our collective of teachers are from all corners of the world, but we all have one thing in common – we love helping people learn. We’re very excited about having our own space in East Village which always seems to have something fresh and exciting going on.”
