Spring happenings in Hackney

As some of you may know we like showcasing many talented people from our local area, from designers, illustrators, artists, musicians film makers and more.

CSFA stands for Creating Sunshine for All and is one of many projects run by migrantsorganise.org. This fantastic project gives refugee women the opportunity to develop skills, confidence and takes them away from the many daily challenges they face. We hope this project will grow in the future and are proud to be one of the first shops selling CSFA's colourful and beautifully handmade bags and purses.

When we ran our own kickstarter campaign a few years ago we had incredible support from many of you. One being Munir Malik who is now directing an exciting film we would now like to support too. Take a look at his Kickstarter campaign -Harvest is a short horror film idea about three friends on the road to a party they will never reach. "Youth is wasted on the young."

We should all take time out from our busy schedules and remember to breathe properly. Having gone to Dalston Yoga now for years, it is definitely time to share this wonderful experience of shadow yoga which takes place in a comfortable homely yoga studio in the heart of Dalston. Paulene is a great teacher and you can check out her classes here.
