Those of you who've been reading my ramblings for a long time will remember The Parlour that I helped out at last year.Dana of Mien Magazine has now launched a Charm School; I went on the pilot weekend for it at the beautiful West Lexham estate;you can read about what we got up to here in a piece I contributed to The Guardian.
Lots more pictures on my fellow guest Lena's blog Style High Club.
Anyway, now the Charm School is coming to town!Popping up in Exmouth Market from the 14th September to the 22nd, with a host of 'after-school' activities,ranging from sewing with the lovely Amy Phipps, stationery making with the talented Alice Gabb, as well as talks from the likes of Jessica Fellowes, author of Mud and the City: Dos and Don’ts for Townies in the Country accompanied by cream tea, and even a talk by yours truly on how to get a good night's sleep, accompanied by milk and cookies. The full schedule is online here, hope to see lots of you there!
There'll be some lovely artwork available to see and buy from artists like Twinkle Troughton who designed the Charm School logo, and also wonderful vintage furniture from ReStore. ReStore take old furniture and sell it on, giving the profits to people in need.They have the most unique pieces of furniture for amazingly low prices-like this chess table we had at the Parlour which went for £20 I think-just come back at the end of the pop-up to pick up whatever you furniture you want to take home!
Speaking of Chess, this weekend is the Chessboxing final, and the Run Riot team are running the after party!WTF is chessboxing, I here you ask?Well basically, what it says on the tin; a battle of brains and braun. Hope to see you there too!
