Please Note this workshop is restricted to businesses based in Bath and North East Somerset.  If you are based elsewhere please call us to discuss how else we may be able to help.
This workshop is for businesses looking to grow, raise awareness or enhance their digital presence, through creating compelling content online.
Marketing in the digital space offers many opportunities to business, but poorly planned and written content can do more harm than good to your business. Learn how to write inspiring and relevant content for variety of digital marketing channels such as websites, blogs, social media and email.
We will look at how writing the right things in the right place at the right time can help your website move up the Google rankings and be discovered by organic searches on line.
We’ll discover how powerful a blog on your website can be to build your presence and influence online. Blogging not only builds up a library of valuable information resource for your business, that can be shared and repurposed across Social Media and other marketing channels, but a website with a blog attracts 97% more traffic.
You will take away some simple, actionable strategies to get your business noticed online; starting with setting some intentions to move forward at this workshop.
The outcome of the workshop is to understand how Digital Marketing is much more than just a website; but using its potential to bring in, and retain, customers to grow your business. 
Please note that whilst this workshop will provide help with understanding how you can use your content on Social Media we do not go into detail on any particular Social Media platform or how to manage them.

Parentalk

10th October - 21st November


Being a parent is one of life’s greatest joys, but it is also one of its biggest  challenges. There’s hardly a mum or dad on the face of the earth who, at times, is not overawed by the task of parenting and there’s no such thing as a perfect  parent.
Parentalk is for parents of children aged up to the early teenage years, giving you the opportunity to talk about   the day-to-day challenges you face, as well as sharing the things that are going well. 
Among other things we will be able to discuss feeling inadequate as a parent; love; communication in your family; boundaries and battles; letting go etc etc.
So come along and join other imperfect parents on a Wednesday evening for coffee, homemade cakes and chat.
The course is brought to you by the Families Ministry of Holy Trinity Church Combe Down. Course co-ordinator Mrs Sharon Blair has years of experience in supporting families. She is joined by presenters Nicky Coutier and Rachel Stewart.

Venue: Combe Down Primary School Hall
Time: 7.45pm

Pencil To Paint: Sep - Dec 2018
Eventbrite.co.uk
26th September - 5th December


“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
The theme for this particular 10 week Pencil To Paint course will be 'still life' and we will look at how artists from Caravaggio to Cezanne used tonality, form and colour to compose their paintings.
Topics will include:
Mark-making
Line, measurement and proportion
Notān
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
16:30 - 18:00
Wednesdays:  26 September; 03, 10, 17, 24 ,October; 07, 14, 21, 28 November; 05 December  - 10 x 1.5 hour sessions)
