Our babysign© classes teach you to use vocabulary from British Sign Language(BSL) with your baby so that you can communicate easily with each other before he or she can talk. Through singing well known songs and nursery rhymes and playing games you will learn core signs and songs which you can enjoy with your baby at home.With the use of music and props, classes are multi-sensory to ensure all areas of your baby’s development are catered for. It is a class where both you and your baby are learning to use sign language on a daily basis to enhance your bond and make parenting that little bit easier. Whats more, it can help to bridge the gap between two languages in a bi-lingual household.For babies and toddlers up to age two
Baba, Black Sheep! Musical improvisation group
Sick of nursery rhymes? Is your baby better than E-I-E-I-O? Then this class is the place for you.
Allow your child to truly experience music through interactive play and free improvisation. Anyone of any age has the ability to make music, we are all capable of creating, and of expressing ourselves through sound. Participants (including adults) are encouraged to listen, interrupt, interact, respond and let their imaginations be inspired by the beauty, the cacophony, and the swell of sounds and rhythms that will fill the air and envelop them.
They will play, as they feel, in the moment, experiencing the pure joy of communal music-making.
Research has shown that an early introduction to music through improvisation rather than more formal music training has a profound and positive effect on a child's individual attitude towards creativity in general and music in particular. It opens the door to possibility.
Led by pianist, improviser and mum of two little people, Elaine Loebenstein.

Storytelling and play session
Join us at our play sessions once a week for some live story telling with Johanna.Trained at the Scottish Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh, UK and with a decade ofexperience as a storyteller for international schools and kindergartens, Johana R Gunst uses her voice, imagination and intriguing props to tell her stories. Props play an essential part in stories intended for a young audience, in particular for non-native and bi-lingual English speakers, crucially providing a framework to the tale. Carefully selected to meet the needs of each story, Johana’s props range from simple toys, antics, musical instruments and more, providing a sense of time, smell and texture to help the story to develop in the audience’s mind and making story time magical.

Malort – The painting space with a difference
Imagine a sheltered and creative space free from evaluation, without praise and without the need to explain ourselves. Malort provides exactly this. A simply space with an attentive guide, but without art instruction, artistic examples or ideals. Children and adults can explore their creativity and expression in the freedom of knowing that no one will be judging what they are doing and consequently do so in ways that would not be possible in a more guided art class. Enrolment is required for the entire semester (20 classes) but students can join at any time.
For children and adults from age 3-99Tuesday 3:30-5pm
