    Make a Real Mug of Yourself

    Ceramics class at Wurkshop, Barnes. 14th October 7.15-9.15pm and 21st October 7.15-8.45pm

    In this fun and engaging class, you will learn a host of hand-decorating techniques to realise your own (or someone else's) face in ceramic mug form. Surely there can be no greater pleasure than enjoying a relaxing mug of tea or coffee from a mug you have made?

    Students will be provided with a basic press-moulded mug shape and will craft features such as eyes, mouth and a nose, the base and handle. You will use a clay extruder, and learn different techniques to create however you choose your mug to look. 

    This is a tactile, satisfying, fun and social way to spend an evening. 

    In this two session class, students will then return a week later once the mugs have been kiln fired, to decorate the pieces using a variety of underglazes and stains. 

    This is a great ceramics class for beginners but also those wanting to learn some different clay techniques.

    Nell Gwynn

    Charlie’s Angels?

    Charles II loved women – first Barbara, later Louise, but most of all he loved Nell, the lovely Nell Gwynn – or, as she put it, “the Protestant whore”.

    The rivalry of the women and the theatre gave them all a lot of fun and gaiety, which is what you’ll find at Q2’s production of Nell Gwynn.

    And you’ll never look at a marzipan tart the same way again.

    £10 standard, £9.00 concessions. 28-30th October, 7.45pm and 30th October 2.30 pm, The National Archives, Kew

    Short Plays for Short Journeys

    Wild Duck Theatre is delighted that Short Plays for Short Journeys Season Two is now available on all major podcast servers or via link wildducktheatre.com/podcasts

    The success of Season One has given us an international reach this time as we include two American, an Irish and two Brits in selecting the very best of new writing.

    Performed by a mixture of pro/experienced actors from in and around Richmond, these are a fascinating mix: Covenant Farm and our stewardship of the land; Relic and the memories of an Irish childhood; Sisters-in-Law as a sequel to Brothers in Season One; Butterflies as a riff on the smart home and Crazy Quilts which is an unsettling look at a small town quilting group.  

    Donations to support the podcast and new writing can be made at wildducktheatre.com/donate 

    For fuller sponsorship partnership opportunities with Wild Duck Productions, please do get in touch info@wildducktheatre.london

    If you're a Writer, Director, or Actor looking to showcase and would like to be a part of future Seasons, we'd love to hear from you.

    We are also looking to collaborate with creative sound designers for Season 3 and beyond. For further information please go to www.wildducktheatre.com/who-are-we

    Wild Duck Theatre is a London based theatre company established in 2015, with a mission to produce high quality contemporary work, combining the best talent - experienced amateur or polished professional and often a mixture of both.

    Rice

    Nisha is a young hotshot executive working for Golden Fields, Australia’s largest producer of rice. Ambitious and headstrong, she’s determined to become the first female Indian CEO in Australia. She’s close to sealing a contract with the Indian government, which would see her company take over India’s national rice distribution system.

    A secret deal worth billions.

    Working late nights in the office she encounters Yvette, an older Chinese migrant, who cleans up her mess. Yvette has her own entrepreneurial ambitions, but her daughter faces court after participating in a protest against the unethical practices of a national supermarket chain.

    The two form a powerful – if unlikely – bond as they navigate the complexities of their lives and the world at large.

    “a heady broth of gender, generation and globalisation” Australian Stage

    Brimming with wickedly humorous observations on globalisation, politics and family, this is the UK premiere of a powerful new play from Asian-Australian writer Michele Lee, which has won numerous awards including the Australian Writers’ Guild Award for Best Original Stage Play.

    Food as Medicine?

    Food definitely influences health but can it be used as medicine?  On this course we will identify the nutritional components of food, find out why our bodies need them and identify why some foods are better eaten in conjunction with others.  

    We shall scrutinise food labelling.  Explore diet and supplements to improve health, particularly in relation to reducing the chances of developing Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and osteoporosis, discussing whether diet/food along can change outcomes in these. We will look at stories about using food as medicine that are found in the media and research some of these to find out if there is any scientfiic basis for the claims.  

    The course aims to give you overall knowledge of nutrition so that you can then make informed decisions to benefit the health of yourself and your family.

    British History 1945 - 1990

    British history from 1945 to 1990 divides into two distinct sub-periods.  From 1945 to the mid 1970s there was a degree of policy consensus between the two principal political parties, though we will discuss whether this has at times been over-stated.  From the mid 1970s there was a clear policy choice for the electorate with significant continuing implications for our world today.  Our approach will be thematic.  For each of the sub-periods we will examine in turn the principal political, diplomatic, economic and social events and changes.
