Tuesday 8th Dec: Prem Sahib Christmas Installation at Bistrotheque

Last week Pablo Flack and David Waddington hosted a special dinner and party
in honour of Prem Sahib, who has created this year's site-specific art work for Christmas at Bistrotheque.  The dinner was called "Beast" as a play on "Feast" with the entire restaurant decked out over 2 floors to accommodate their expanse of guests.  Here I am with my spectrum-studio girls Kim Howells, Margot Bowman, Jessie Brinton and designer Sadie Clayton.  
Whilst Bistrotheque is in beast mode with Prem's adult theme, the annual "Knitivity" by Sibling has found a home at HoiPolloi, set up in the atrium of the Shoreditch sister restaurant.

Sunday 6th Dec: Spark Your City: Thomasina Miers

Spark Your City is a global movement dedicated to spark joy in everyday city life which began in London with Gemma Cairney's rainbow across London Bridge.  This week Thomasina Miers set up a rainbow greenhouse on Southbank to distribute herbs seeds.  I got a packet of Lavender seeds with a recipe card for how to incorporate fresh lavender into shortbread and pannacotta!  Head over to the site to see more Sparks!
