Drawing into Print: Intaglio Print Workshop
Feb 16 @ 10:30 am – 4:30 pm
Drawing into Print: Intaglio Print Workshop  @ The Holburne Museum | England | United Kingdom

Join printmaker, Jemma Gunning, for a lively day of sketching and printing. Spend the morning making site-specific drawings around Bath, using various drawing techniques to capture the beautiful architecture the city has to offer. In the afternoon, you will work your drawings up into a small edition of intaglio prints to take home with you, creating a lively set of dry points with an etching press and exploring inking techniques, colour and tonal ranges, and Chine-colle.

Printmaker, Jemma Gunning, specialises in etching and stone lithography. Her artistic practice researches industrial decline and abandoned spaces that have been left to fall into disrepair. She is interested in recording our heritage before it is obliterated from our landscapes. Her work asks us to slow down and to consider the buildings that too many of us just walk straight past and ignore.

Jazz in the Galleries- The Jim Blomfield Trio
Feb 28 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Jazz in the Galleries- The Jim Blomfield Trio @ The Holburne Museum | England | United Kingdom
( Garden Café open for drinks, 6-7pm)

Join The Jim Blomfield Trio for their debut jazz gig at the Holburne. Like many of the newer generation of jazz players today, the Trio draw their influences from various genres – the eclectic colours of Rock, Drum and Bass, Latin jazz, classical piano and contemporary jazz. This promises to be a night of lyrical and evocative melodies, driving rhythms, rich harmonies, and adventurous solo and group improvisations.

Jim Blomfield (piano/keyboards), Roshan Wijetunge (bass) and Mark Whitlam (drums) are three individual voices whose previous collaborations read like a who’s-who of the UK jazz scene. Following the release of their critically-acclaimed debut album ‘Wave Forms and Sea Changes’ on Pig Records, the trio have just released their second album ‘Strange Beauty – Every Way OK.’ Like the first album, the latest release contains a diverse set of Blomfield original compositions, but further develops the trio’s sound world with the incorporation of synthesiser and electronica elements into the mix.

Symposium: Why Museums Matter for Mental Health

Symposium: Why Museums Matter for Mental Health @ The Holburne Museum | England | United Kingdom

Friday 5 April, 10am–4.30pm
£30 (includes refreshments on arrival and welcome pack)
‘Increasingly museums are an essential part of the social health infrastructure as well as the cultural and we are very much an active part of that development. Since joining the Holburne probably the most affecting thing for me has been to see the profound impact the museum can have on individual lives. The delicate balance between reaching large audiences in some ways and smaller audiences with deeper levels of engagement is so important.’
Chris Stephens, DIRECTOR OF THE HOLBURNE MUSEUM.

Bringing together specialists from arts, heritage and health sectors, this cross sector learning event will talk about the benefits, challenges and outcomes of working together on Health and Heritage projects which use creativity to promote mental health and wellbeing.
As well as keynote speakers from the heritage and health fields, the Holburne and its Bath museum partners will be sharing learning from our 3 year Pathways to Wellbeing programme and will focus on how Museums can act as inclusive, therapeutic spaces, inspiring creativity to promote mental health and wellbeing.
