New Year, new challenges, with one eye on the season ahead its time to prep – Swyron’s puffing virtual e-smoke, so needs a complete overhaul – powered by a Golf buggy battery, its a re-chargable green – non emissions vehicle, so its going in for its annual MOT!

Stuff that needs a new home and stuff that’s seen better days – its time to say good bye!

So its off to the container we go……hi ho, hi, ho…

90% preparation 10% perspiration…we think not!

The Big Hair Search

Plotting and planning our next spectacle, we came across this image. Part of our hefty collection of archive images, source material and videos (VHS’s) around Mannequins and these near perfect porcelain manufactured High Street doyens.
From the days of ‘my hair is bigger than yours’, if you have a ‘Hema’ Style hair do, or if someone in your family or friends circle makes a connection please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you, listen to you story – remember, no two big hair stories are the same and we haven’t been able to keep a straight face yet, challenge us!

The Joya of January

January always starts hard and fast for us. New years resolutions up and running (well almost!), happy new year greetings almost exhausted and with a chill in the air, we couldn’t think of a better way to start the year than to be surrounded by books in the home of Joya Knight.

Partition survivor, former science teacher in the UK’s first comprehensive, Japanese language student and all round Nutkhut inspiration, Joya Knight kicks of our calendar month. Researching her life amongst her books and her art has been an inspiration and a total Joy.

After a chance meeting in the lobby of our office in Charlton House, Joya’s contribution to our ‘Defining Moments’ series has contributed to making the whole process clearer and has given the project meaning. Joya’s experience of Partition will form part of our National Education Toolkit for generations to come.
