Are you looking to start a new hobby this year? Or perhaps wish to re-ignite a passion for pottery once held in the past?

We’ve found the perfect place to do so! Sundragon is a community-led association that offers pottery courses to people of any ability, with differing focuses covering all aspects of the craft.

Don’t be shy! If, like us, you wouldn’t know where to start given a lump of clay, but have a keen interest in learning about pottery and developing a new skill, book on to a course at Sundragon!

Underneath Spaghetti Junction in Birmingham, taken by Jan Hart

Intriguing composition of the notorious Spaghetti Junction.

Captured by Jan Hart in the Summer of 2022, the splashes of greenery against the brutalist backdrop are a prime example of the endless juxtaposing landscapes in Birmingham. Your eye is drawn along the towpath; a peaceful spot underneath the chaos of the roads above!

Shop frontages in Birmingham's Back To Backs

Learn about the ever-changing shop fronts in Birmingham

The story of Birmingham has been told over time through various artforms and from a multitude of perspectives. 

Daniel King's recent PechaKucha talk is one of my favourites. Changes to High Street shopfronts and signage often go unnoticed when you pass them every day. 

This video puts our modern reality into perspective, showcasing stories of ever changing micro-cultures, economies and communities over the decades. A valuable addition to the archives of local storytelling in the city!
