Welcome to the seventh edition of the Topaz magazine
As mentioned in the last edition of the Topaz magazine, the Template Foundation
UK has moved into its new headquarters in Barnet and is in the process of a
major renovation and refurbishment of what was previously a small factory/warehouse.
Already the large room behind the shop entrance has been converted into a beautiful
meeting space, called the Amber Room, where community events are being held.
A large number of the projects active within the Template Network look to voluntarily
give time to providing educational programmes into their local communities throughout
the UK and Ireland. These events are subsidised and supported by the Template
Foundation, and they offer colourful and innovative new approaches to interesting
subjects, from theatre to art to science and the environment. The current activities
include a drawing course by Chris Ake, who is featured in this edition, a six
week drama course, craft workshops, and talks on education, Shakespeare and
the human aura.
This edition of the Topaz again provides examples of exciting projects across
Europe, from Holland, Denmark, Germany, Greece and the UK, as well as some fascinating
articles about personal development and gardening. We hope you continue to enjoy
the Topaz and welcome your enquiries and feedback.
If you want information about future events at the Foundation headquarters,
or in Wales, Nottingham or Ireland, or want to be included on the mailing list
or to become a Friend of the Template Foundation, please write to Template Foundation,
PO Box 287, Hatfield, AL9 6WJ.
