Hello everyone,

More surprises for June!

Today (Sunday June 10th) come and find me at the Union Chapel Summer Fete, and help me make some suffragette themed rosettes, sashes and placards for you to wear and carry, to celebrate the centenary anniversary of women being given the vote.

Also, your chance to pick a flower for 20p:

Next Saturday - June 16th - Come and celebrate the launch of Camberwell Arts Week, Chutney style! Curated by Sarah Sparkes.

From midday on Camberwell Green I will be manifesting as Kiss Me Quick, offering bespoke and curative love potions and a poetry lucky dip. Find a rich cornucopia of arty wonders and peculiar offerings from a smorgasboard of Chutney creatives.

And next week you can see my short film "Singing Ghost" and my still from the imaginary film "The Dark Lights" at Empire II, curated by Vanya Balogh, which is travelling to Estonia, for Tallin Art Week:


​Also next week on Wednesday between 11am and 2pm, I will be making mushrooms out of papier mache to decorate the nooks and crannies of Union Chapel, at the Culture Cafe. Sessions are free and all materials are provided. The Margins Cafe will be open for lunch, serving delicious food at very reasonable prices. Do come along and join in!

With love and best wishes - Joanna​

Hello everyone,

This month is jam packed with exciting arty experiences.

First up, treat yourself to some life drawing!

I'm teaching Marathon Life Drawing next Saturday 9th June, at Thomas Calton Centre in Peckham, SE15. The course takes place over two consecutive Saturdays, 10am - 4.30pm, and I share it with my colleague Rebecca Allen, who will be teaching on Saturday 16th - so it's a great chance to experience a variety of teaching styles.

And then on  Sunday June 17th at 6.30pm it's time for the third Five Alive! in the bar at Union Chapel, Islington N1

The class lasts for three hours, with five models, music, and drinks available from the bar throughout the night. Free art materials are provided. The theme for the middle pose this time is disco, and there will be one to one tutoring from me during the multi model long pose.
