The Elthorne Pride homework and saturday club: All our staff working with children and young people have an enhanced DBS
I'm Belinda, and the founder of Marli’s Kitchen. I went vegan in 2016 after learning and researching the best diet for health. Marli’s Kitchen began trading in Feb 2018 at Tottenham Green Market. I did my first large Event in July 2018, gained a spot at Kerb Inkerbator scheme in August 2019, they mentored me at their London sites, 2020 looked rosy with large festivals and events and catering gigs booked, Covid had other plans. I quickly reacted and started selling my vegan fried chicken through social media and I’ve not looked back since, it’s been over a year and now scaled up to couriering food nationally and being featured in national press.
Starting Marli's Kitchen and subsequently working with Elthorne Pride was a chance to bring all of this together, to make an impact, bring awareness to something I am passionate about, demonstrate how easy it is to cut back or cut out meat from your diet. Working with Elthorne Pride feels great to be part of this cultural shift to support each other. Every event worked with Elthorne Pride is creating a positive impact in the local community on the environment and the suffering of farm animals.

Hi, my name is Charley,
I run Expressive painting workshops for teenagers at Elthorne Pride.
In these workshops we aim to engage teenagers with a series of workshops in expressive
painting. Creative arts are well known for being therapeutic skills to learn for all ages. The engagement of youngsters with visual arts may also inspire new career goals.
In these workshops I will be exploring different areas of painting and drawing we will learn
fundamentals such as colour mixing composition. The participants will also be encouraged to
develop their own individual ideas to put into their artworks like practicing artists.
I have been painting all my life and have felt the benefit not only in my career but also in my well - being for being engaged in the arts. As part of my own work, I gain ideas and inspiration from creating workshops and engaging all age groups with painting. Aside from painting I love travelling and exploring nature with a camera, and I am a practitioner and teacher of the Afro Brazilian art ‘Capoeira’. My dream is to get my paintings exhibited worldwide and reach as many people as possible with my art both in my own paintings and sharing my own ideas and skills in painting workshops. I hope to keep developing workshops with community projects worldwide with a view to inspiring and being inspired by as many people as possible.
In this time of technological influence and pandemic I believe the voice of the young people is more than ever needed to remind us what is important in life, being happy, healthy and giving back to our communities and following your dreams!

My credentials include an MA in Emotional Intelligence, BA in English and 19 years of direct institutional experience working within inner-city London schools.
I am a proactive and positive role model who is dynamic, adaptable and committed to making change for the better. Also, I am an empathetic, compassionate, patient and caring professional with excellent communication skills, who enjoys supporting others to achieve the best possible outcome.
I have the ability to go above and beyond, as I am able to think out of the box using my creativity and experiences. In addition, I am a life-long learner and encourage students to be the same to become the best version of them. I build trusting transparent relationships which raises the attainment of all.
My commitment to my students is paramount, as they need to have consistency, boundaries and love to feel safe to grow into an all-rounded member of our community.
I have enjoyed the opportunity of teaching a diverse group of students, including those with SEN needs. I focus on both the academic and social aspects when teaching for students to connect their learning to real life situations.
My greatest asset is building trusting and transparent relationships. Using praise and encouragement, ensures students remain motivated to obtain an “I can” attitude.
No student is unreachable or unteachable. All have strengths. My job is to find their individual gifts and nurture them. Working with Elthorne Pride during the pandemic has made me very proud as the students are willing and extremely able even in unprecedented times.
All have been a pleasure to teach as they are polite with a passion for learning.
It is not where we come from - it is where we can go!

Mary is a London based artist who is interested in printmaking and maps.
She has developed a workshop for you to create Cyanotype photographs. By using special sunlight sensitive paper and layering transparent pictures and stuff you can forage from outside, you can create one-off photographic masterpieces.
Cyanotype printing is a fun way to understand the principles of photography using sunlight by exposing paper with arranged objects placed on them. In this particular workshop, Mary will ask you to use some of the pictures she has provided and collect plants and items that you can forage from local hedgerows to create the patterns on the paper. She will show you how to develop the image on the specially treated paper, creating magical sunlight photographs.
One week after completing the workshop we will have a special online group meeting, Mary can look at the work you produced and you can all participate in a group chat.
(Pictured Left, Example of Cyanotype from Previous workshop)
To participate in this workshop you must pick up a special envelope containing 4 special sheets of photographic paper, 4 sheets of acetate and an instruction sheet
