If anything, we want to celebrate Kahlo’s individualism, energy and modernity more than ever before.

Throughout the evening you will be guided through the process of lino printing, choosing from our three most inspired paintings. Learn how to design, carve and print your very own Frida! This evening is a celebration of Frida’s life and work so of course a toast is to be had! A glass of bubble will be included in your booking or a refreshing orange juice if prefered. This evening is for you to enjoy and create something spectacular, have a good natter and meet other Frida enthusiasts! Whether you are a complete beginner or at a more intermediate level, we tailor our teaching style around each individual. Our tutors are friendly, knowledgeable artists who will guide you through the whole process.

Our Yoga classes are a mix of Hatha and Vinyasa. So you get a balanced workout of both soft and hard styles of Yoga. One of the key benefits of this system is that itÂs easier to incorporate different ability levels. Hatha means forceful in Sanskrit, the ancient Indian language that is the source of most of yoga terminology. Try a hatha class if the idea of gentler yoga appeals to you or seems right for your body. It can be a great introduction to yoga, but should not be mistaken for easy yoga since it can still be challenging both physically and mentally. Hatha classes provide an opportunity to stretch, unwind, and release tension, providing a good counterpoint to both busy lifestyles and cardio workouts. Vinyasa is a more powerful, dynamic and movement based style of Yoga. Vinyasa, also called flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga.
