Tots Tunes was created by cellist Tara Franks. Now starting up on the south coast, these interactive, creative parent and baby (0-4s) classes combine learning original songs, folk tunes, rounds, part songs from around the world with a few dance moves thrown in. Come along and listen to and learn some great ‘non-baby’ acoustic music all accompanied by cello and percussion.

Thank you @slam for this great article about Lakwena Maciver: Jump exhibition.

"Lakwena Maciver’s ‘The Jump Paintings’ Captures the Beauty of the Game by Reimagining Basketball Courts."

"The basic layout of a basketball court has provided the canvas for Maciver’s most recent hoops project, “The Jump Paintings.”

Each court in her series is an abstract portrait of the player it represents, cryptically alluding to their personalities, journey and character. Unlike her previous blacktop designs, these courts hang vertically on gallery walls and are the exact size of the player who inspired the creation, with “Tyrone” (top right, based on Muggsy Bogues) standing at 5 feet, 3 inches and “Manute” (top left), based on Manute Bol at 7 feet, 7 inches."

⭐️ Frame of the Week ⭐️

This week features more works from our dear friend Sir Quentin Blake @quentinblakehq ready for his forthcoming exhibition at Hastings Contemporary @_art_on_sea

These are large, quite a contrast to what we’re used to framing for Quentin! We’ve stuck to the same theme, white on ash supersized moulding with our beautiful museum quality glass, float mounted giving a stunning contemporary finish 🖼 👌

For more information on our guild commended framing service visit blackshedpictureframing.co.uk or send us a DM!
