This documentary touches on every aspect of his work, from politically conscious operas to beatific meditations like ‘The Dharma of Big Sur’. Adams also talks revealingly about his working processes – ‘getting the music to do what it wants to do’ seems to be a priority. Visually, the film is striking too: Adams lives in California and the state’s grandly infinite skies reflect the composer’s wide-open receptiveness perfectly.
Tea & Crafting
Like tea? Like craft? You'll definitely like this creative joint in Camden. Since it was set up in 2009 Tea & Craft has been teaching Londoners to knit, sew, crochet, embroider and much more. The classes are offered as one-off, drop-in sessions for beginners, as well as courses for those who want to learn a lot more. All materials are included, so all you have to do is pay and turn up. So successful are these tea-fuelled workshops, that Tea & Craft now run private sessions, too, for hen parties, baby showers and corporate events, as well as afternoon tea birthday parties.
