Looking for something to brighten your walls this winter? Head along to the Edinburgh Premier Art Awards exhibition, 5 August - 2 September at the Otago Art Society. Admire the entries, vote for your favourite for the People’s Choice Award and treat yourself to a purchase or two.

For a night of aroma, tea and treats, book yourself a place on the Aromatherapy Workshop on 8 August with Aromatherapist Sharyn Crawford. Learn about essential oil blends and benefits, and make your own blend to take home.

The I Am Found Market is now the Be-loved Market, where you can peruse pre-loved, vintage and handmade collections from a variety of curators and makers. Find yourself something truly exquisite, Saturday 12 August, at the Maori Hill Community Centre.
