Art classes in Huddersfield

Classes are held in the Huddersfield area

My daughter has a new website for her original, distinctive artwork.


HUDDERSFIELD CONTEMPORARY MUSIC FESTIVAL Over 30 years old. The perfect reason for living in Huddersfield. Every year has some revelations but 2005 was memorable for the return of the music of Helmut Lachenmann, 2006/7/8 were not vintage years for us but 2010 was the most exciting for some while!

ANTON WEBERN This is an elegant and imaginative introduction. Does not tackle the subject in any depth, but has very useful MP3's for those new to Webern.

SCHOENBERG The Arnold Schoenberg Centre Website.Put aside 3 or 4 days to wander around this!

LUIGI NONO One of the people behind this site and the previous wonderful site is Nuria, the daughter of Schoenberg, and Nono's widow

ED HUGHES A richly sonorous music

IAN WILSON Irish composer

The Other Arts

ROBERT MUSIL Comprehensive and frequently updated site maintained by Gerry van Beers. I have rather a hidden link on my Home page to my own Robert Musil page, bet you didn't find it! So this will also take you to it.

THOMAS BERNHARD Bernhard, Hrabal and Musil are my favourite writers. Tried recently to read a couple of Booker winners and before a third of the book I felt dirty with the slick and formulaic writing, so retreated to the uncompromised Bernhard. A very thorough website as befits this writer, anything less and you should be certain his shade will arise and cut you off in your prime.

BOHUMIL HRABAL A short article in English about Bohumil Hrabal is to be found in Wikipedia with a couple of useful links. Hrabal has been well translated into English. So get hold of DANCING LESSONS FOR THE ADVANCED IN AGE, and go to the beer stall on the other side of the road from VYSTAVISTE and read it whilst enjoying a glass or two of Francin's lager from the Nymburk Brewery where Hrabal's father worked. With luck you will be amongst characters straight from his books! Photograph of the Hrabal Wall in Liben. Photo taken by Miaow Miaow in March 2005

ADOLF LOOS Loos and Plecnik are the two architects whose work most influences me. Plecnik's church in Vinohrady and the Muller Villa by Loos must be seen when you are in Prague. Book well in advance for a very comprehensive tour of the Muller Villa and attend a service at The Church of the Sacred Heart; otherwise access to both is extremely restricted.

JACQUES RIVETTE 'Order of the Exile' is the name of this tribute site, I am a late comer to Rivette and have found this useful. The site has a purposeful lack of visual stimuli, that is for the films to do! gives a thorough grounding in the surrounding territories.

NOSTALGHIA: ANDREI TARKOVSKY Dense information rich site.

EUROPA FILM TREASURES A joint project of European and Russian film archives. I have found wonderful gems within it

PROGRAMMATOLOGY John Cayley. Supple and subtle use of the computer for Poetry, far from what is usually promoted as digital art

NICOLAS POUSSIN - The complete works by Nicolas Poussin More than 90 images, biography, user comments, slideshow, eCards and more!


CZECH BEER The best site on the web. Very comprehensive. Written by Ron Pattinson who like me has bleak thoughts about the future for Czech beer.

CZECH TIMETABLE Superbly organised timetable for ALL transport in the Czech Republic.

HATS Tonak hats from CZ. I was let loose in Tonak's warehouse one summer, friendly people and great fun for a hat addict

TATRA REGISTER UK Pages with comprehensive world links. You will also find other TATRA links on my TATRA Links page


YMUG The Yorkshire Mac User Group. Very helpful and friendly user group

61 Optical Illusions & Visual Phenomena Michael Bach gives us a wonderful tour of visual illusions

COFFEE Hasbean coffee - dreadful pun for a splendid company. Steve, the owner, is wonderfully over the top and passionate about good coffee, I have tried others and this is my favorite, and once you get involved with his video blog very entertaining
