Bright 'n' crafty

8th February & 8th March | The Church of the Good Shepherd

B

right ‘n’ Crafty was started in October 2013 as a showcase for local bespoke handmade Arts & Crafts by Jasmine Wighton and Victoria Dickson.

The concept came from Jasmine's passion for everything handmade, and wanting to provide a regular monthly fair in the Dyke Road area of Brighton. She then approached Victoria, a freelance events coordinator, to team up and create these events. Once they had found the stunning venue, The Church of the Good Shepherd on Dyke Road - perfect in size with a beautiful interior, reflecting the stallholders unique handmade products - it was all systems go and Bright ‘n’ Crafty was launched, falling on the second Saturday of each month. The fair is a lovely day event for the whole family, teaming with superb stallholders, each selling beautifully crafted wares, ranging from jewellery, knitted products, ceramics, and print works. The stallholders alternate monthly so each event is different and presents a fresh

array of products and creative genius. Alongside the stalls, the pop-up café provides homemade cupcakes and other delicious refreshments, as well as a space to sit back and absorb the atmosphere. You’ll also find a children’s face painter and jazz band Aura entertaining shoppers and stallholders alike throughout the afternoon. The fair is also host to creative workshops for all members of the public to try their hand at some arts & crafts. This month the fabulous Jessie Jumbles will be leading the way and teaching us how to brighten up any outfit by customising buttons, with expert tips on getting the perfect finish. You can book for these workshops via the website bright-n-crafty.co.uk The next Bright ‘n’ Crafty events are: Saturday 8th February 2014, from 11am-5pm. Saturday 8th March 2014, from 11am-5pm.

S LIFE COACHE

Lifestyle

Why do people use a Life Coach?

T

his is a question I get asked frequently. I suppose the same people might ask why someone would use a personal trainer? To be honest, it’s like everything, down to personal choice. If you want to get fit and healthy but struggle to commit to the gym or an exercise class, if you lack motivation and just need that support and encouragement you’d probably consider a personal trainer. If you feel like your life is running away with you, you lack support from family and friends and need an objective non-judgmental approach. If you want someone to make you accountable for the goals you have set yourself then I’d suggest you consider a Life Coach! There doesn’t have to be something wrong with you to have coaching, it’s about how you manage your life to the best of your ability and make it the best possible life for you. If you find the right coach, they will help and support you to make positive change in your life and it might only be teeny weenie changes that have a HUGE impact on day-to-day living. Cost is always something that comes up but a bit like personal training, how much have you wasted on gym membership that you rarely use? You’d probably

benefit more from personal training to get you started and THEN join a gym? With coaching, you are usually offered a free consultation to see if it would work for you and then the coach will give you an idea of how many sessions are needed so you can budget accordingly – money well spent if it gets you back on track. I’ve seen redundant people get back into work, I’ve witnessed Dad’s getting home earlier as they’ve organized their days better, Mums who are juggling many tasks find some me time and numerous other positive changes in people’s lives through coaching. So back to the original question, I think a client of mine sums it up best: “I guess I always thought that seeing a life coach was a bit unnecessary and that people just needed a bit more 'get up and go'. As I don't lack motivation, I couldn't see what a life coach could do for me. Your coach is the friend who understands your talents and personality but is not afraid of asking you challenging questions. They see things objectively, like no friend or family can. They keep you on track with your goals and help you achieve them without you ever feeling nagged at or criticised. They keep you motivated when you feel like you want to give up. One of the best decisions I’ve made.” Kate Tilston Life Coach - www.Katetilston.co.uk

ARTS & CULTURE

STEPHANIE ELSE "I enjoy the unpredictability of my work - never knowing exactly what a finished piece will look like when it comes out of the kiln, and the fact that no two pieces can ever be the same’."

F

rom her studio in Brighton, Stephanie Else specialises in making high quality contemporary glass designs using a variety of kiln-forming techniques.

As well as exhibiting her work in galleries, Stephanie has also completed numerous commissions and interior design projects, and offers a bespoke service working closely with clients to tailor make glass to their specific needs.

Working with a combination of both transparent and opaque glass she adds metals, foils and lustres to produce a stunning range of decorative and functional works of art and jewellery.

Look out for Stephanie this coming May as she will be opening her own glass studio as part of the Artists Open Houses.

Inspired by the glass itself, she combines a vibrant use of colour with surface texture and pattern within the glass to create beautifully tactile pieces, whilst exploiting the natural translucent and jewel like qualities it possesses.

Dynamite Gallery

ynamite Gallery opened its doors in Brighton last December, showcasing a wide selection of work from a unique mix of international artists, many of whom have never before exhibited or sold work in the UK before. A huge variety of styles and mediums can be viewed and purchased, with gallery founder Henry Gomez citing “Power, subtlety and vibrancy” as his curatorial influences. From Meros Golden’s urban mix of graffiti and photorealism, to Sara Pope’s glossy, expressive and colourful mixed media collages; sculpture, illustration and fine art are all well represented within the walls of Dynamite Gallery.

“The idea of changing someone's perception of what they like in terms of art means a lot to me”, states Gomez, “Leaving with something fresh, exciting and most of all, something they didn't ever expect to enjoy”. This year will play host to some very exciting events and exhibitions at the gallery; including film and acoustic music nights, artist Q&A’s and even life drawing sessions. A selection of works from the gallery can also be viewed and bought online via the website dynamitegallery.com Dynamite Gallery 1A Jubilee Street , Brighton, BN1 1GE dynamitegallery.com

HEALTH

LOVE YOUR HEART

W

ith Valentine’s Day and National Heart Month both in February, I thought I would take the opportunity to discuss heart health. The heart is a fist-sized muscle, situated to the left of the centre of the chest, behind the ribcage. It has four chambers – two on each side. The two upper chambers (the atria) are responsible for collecting the blood that arrives in the heart via the veins. The two lower chambers (the ventricles) are larger and are responsible for pumping blood out of the heart via the arteries. Oxygen is delivered to every part of the body via blood from the left side of the heart. Deoxygenated blood is carried back from body to the right side of the heart. The blood passes from the right side of the heart to the lungs, where it is replenished with fresh oxygen before being sent back to the left side of the heart. The average heart beats about 100,000 times a day, pumping about 23,000 litres of blood around the 60,000 miles of blood vessels in the body that make up the circulatory system. Together, the heart and circulatory system make up the cardiovascular system. One of the main problems that can occur with the cardiovascular system is cardiovascular disease, where

arteries become narrowed and hardened due to a build up of fatty deposits within their walls (atherosclerosis). If this occurs within the arteries that provide oxygen-rich blood to the heart (the coronary arteries), the heart may not receive enough oxygen, leading to angina (chest pain or discomfort). If the coronary arteries become so narrowed that a blockage forms, the heart can be completely starved of oxygen, leading to a heart attack; this can permanently damage heart muscle and cause lifelong heart failure and even death. If cardiovascular disease affects the arteries of the neck, blood supply to the brain can be interrupted and lead to a stroke. So, what can we do to keep that marvelous little muscle healthy? It is all about eliminating risk factors. Some, like gender, ethnicity and ageing, we can do nothing about; but that does not mean we can’t significantly reduce the chance of getting heart disease. Regular exercise and a healthy diet, low in saturated fat and salt, stopping smoking and reducing alcohol intake will all contribute towards a happier heart, not just on Valentine’s Day – but every day!
