Welcome to Things to do in Hampshire This Weekend 29 January 2021!
At the beginning of the year I turned my regular Friday Instagram Stories recommendations into a blog post for the new year.
Every Friday I’ll be sharing five things across Hampshire for you to do, eat or visit. Normally my suggestions cover everything from events and places to explore to places to eat and drink at. But, we’re in a National Lockdown so I’m working with what we’ve got and providing inspiration where possible.
Take a look at this week’s suggestions which focus on Hampshire’s online classes…

It’s the TK Maxx of online classes and it’s time to get rummaging to find a gem of an online class that suits you!
Bridgette has so many different classes from traditional calligraphy to brush lettering and plenty of different classes and styles in between.
It’s worth having a browse of her website to have a look, and if you’re a beginner take a look at the ‘Click Calligraphy’ starter online classes.
She’ll also be sharing a few simple ideas on her Instagram page over the next couple of week to help you practise outside of class.
Amy has a series of art classes starting from £5 coming up over the next few months that you can do using any medium online.
In October I did all of her classes and cannot recommend them enough.
I’m going to sign up to some of the new ones as they are perfect for unwinding after a long day at work, practicing mindfulness and learning some new skills.
The great thing about Amy is she caters for all abilities, and strikes a great balance between giving you guidance and letting you have your own creative freedom.
The Business of Making Seminar Series is a free class from The Gosport Gallery via Hampshire Cultural Trust.
If you are looking to start or further your own business then this series of classes is for you. Delivered in a seminar style it provides useful tips on self-employment, income streams and setting up an online sales platform.
