Mothering Sunday and Women's History Month
Since 1987 March has been a month dedicated to celebrating the (often overlooked) contributions of women to history, society, and culture. Its beginning can be traced as far back as 1909 to the first Women’s History Day in New York, when it commemorated the anniversary of the thousands of women who marched in the garment workers’ strikes against low pay, long work hours, and the lack of voting rights.

Home Decor Trends for Autumn 2022
Self-expression is an important part of our lives, helping us to understand and access our unique desires and creativity, leading to a more authentic and fulfilling existence. And, as our homes have become even larger facets in our lives over the last few years, it stands to reason that the way we decorate them has moved away from the neutral and impersonal, towards something that is more representative of our passions and aspirations.
Can Art Promote Relaxation?
With its warmer weather, trees vibrant with leaves, and a bit of time off from theworking week, the summer season has proved to be a great time to practice a bit of self-care. If you’ve relished the opportunity to indulge in a little ‘me time’, why not continue your practice into the cooler months, when we often need it the most.So, what can we do to promote a little tranquillity in our lives, and can ‘art’ help to induce a sense of relaxation? There is certainly some testimony to suggest so.
Leading Art Trends of 2022
Fashions and trends are a constantly changing entity in every area of life, and the world of art is no exception.If you look at any art movement throughout history, it is possible to see how an endless list of factors unique to the time; including politics, culture, conflict, and environment, have influenced individual artists, their work, and what people want to see the most.
Colour Choices in Our Homes
We spend a lot of time carefully perusing paint swatches and flicking through fabric samples to find the colours that are 'just right' for our homes, even finding ourselves revisiting them and redecorating only a few years later.Not only do we make colour choices to reflect and help communicate the way in which we are currently feeling but we might also choose specific colours to influence how we aspire to feel.
