Slung Low offers classes spanning Tai chi to cooking and even fire eating
Pay-as-you-feel classes were bound to be popular - so it’s little surprise that Leeds’ community college, launched last summer, has been a huge success.
Ran by Slung Low theatre company, the college attracted over 350 attendees last year in everything from stargazing to decorative blacksmithing. Now it’s announced a second term of classes, beginning this February. As usual, anyone can join but get in there fast if you want a place.
Based in the company’s new Holbeck venue, classes span woodwork to Asian cookery, mental health first aid to Tai Chi…and even fire eating. Bimey. The ‘curriculum’ was chosen by last year’s students, now members of the Cultural Community College.
Each course will be led by an expert in their field, with this term’s teachers including Indian street foodsters Manjit’s kitchen, poet Ian McMillan and author Adele Stripe.
