THANK YOU FOR THE BEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR 🎺 🎵 🎙️ ❤️

I just wanted to say thank you to kaihoffmanjazz and every volunteer involved for creating such a special weekend for us every year, but especially this year.

We could have been anywhere in the world but we were lucky enough to have such a spectacle brought to our little town. All the fun and no commute. 

The quality of the acts was superb, this event really does bring a richness to us and I’m so grateful. I urge everyone to support and donate to next years hernebayjazz festival.

the_coalminers YOU WERE PHENOMENAL, thank you 🙏

ONE WEEK TODAY! Me and F.M.A. Dixon spill the beans on what it is to be published in 2022. We’ve promised to tell the truth about festivals, book launches, Covid, school events, imposter syndrome, horror movies, driving agents potty, hassling publishers, escalating paper costs, avoiding reading reviews, and all while trying to write our next books.

Come for the unvarnished truth, stay for the free wine and cake (all included in the ticket price!).

Tickets are £5 and redeemable if you buy one of our books, so we can’t say fairer than that (and did we mention the free wine and cake?”)

Click on the link in my bio to get your tickets, and we do recommend that you book ahead. thegreenbookshop is a wonderful venue, but the clue is in the name. It’s little, and twenty people is a crowd.

FULLY BOOKED 

🌾Wednesday 17th August 2022
Slot 1: 11am-12:00pm
Slot 2: 12:15-1:15pm
At beachcreativecic 
FREE funded by hernebayfest and Reconnect

What is a cyanotype?
The cyanotype printing technique is one of the earliest forms of photography, invented in 1842 by Sir John Herschel.
A cyanotype print is created by exposing UV sensitive paper to UV light, which is found in the sunshine
First, objects are laid on top of the UV sensitive paper and exposed to UV light. Once the print has been exposed to the sunshine for enough time, the print is washed in water to fix the image to the page. The outcome is a striking blue & white silhouette image of the object you laid on top

Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is aimed at beginners, no previous experience is needed. The workshops are aimed at families as a Summer Holiday activity, but feel free to book if you are also a beginner. If you're surpervising your child, but not taking part- please book yourself a ticket so I can anticipate how many people will be in the room. It would also be helpful to let me know if you're just supervising & not taking part so I can predict materials needed for the session.

Why is it free?
This workshop is funded by the 2022 Herne Bay Festival - please only book a space if you are able to turn up. If your circumstances change and you need to cancel your free time slot, please get in touch so we can make space for other people
