Activity: Stitch Workshop

Choose one of 12 spring projects to create in this day workshop with Pam Martin of Somerset Stitch. Beginner or experienced stitchers both welcome to join us in the light and airy art room at the Brewhouse Theatre. Pam's approach is a little different to other stitch and sewing workshops, in that potentially all attendees can be making something different! Have a look at the projects and choose what you would like to make, then book your place.

David Lynch: The Art Life

David Lynch: The Art Life
  • 2016
  • 1h 30min
  • Directed by: Jon Nguyen

Director David Lynch traces the events that have helped to shape his creative output. The film is not without insights, but Lynch is evasive. Although intriguing, it is perhaps one for Lynch completists only.

The Last Word

The Last Word
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 1h 48min
  • U
  • Directed by: Mark Pellington
  • Cast: Shirley MacLaine, Amanda Seyfried, AnnJewel Lee Dixon

Control freak businesswoman Harriet Lauler (MacLaine) is concerned about her legacy, so demands that young journalist Anne (Seyfried) write her obituary in advance. Entirely predictable on every level, yet MacLaine’s energy, commitment and sheer star power makes you care about Harriet and give the film the benefit of the doubt.

Mulholland Drive

Mulholland Drive
  • 2001
  • US
  • 2h 26min
  • 15
  • Directed by: David Lynch
  • Written by: David Lynch
  • Cast: Justin Theroux, Naomi Watts, Laura Harring, Ann Miller, Robert Forster

Given the troubled production history of Lynch's nightmare noir – it was originally a pilot for a US television series which was cancelled – it's nothing short of miraculous that Mulholland Drive shines with the filmmaker's idiosyncratic brilliance. Although set in the present day (albeit with retro styling), Lynch draws on his fascination with 40s and 50s Hollywood and its secret history of crime, here involving two actresses, amnesiac Rita (Harring) and amateur sleuth Betty (Watts). The proceedings veer into the kind of waking nightmare territory that either flummoxes or delights viewers, as Lynch mixes the bizarre and almost laughable with the moments of electrifying fear.
