Hello, how do you do? Charmed to meet you.
Modern Day Charm School reminds us that we still need to mind our Ps and Qs
On September 14th, The Charm School is popping up in a space on Exmouth Market in London.
From September 14 to September 22, the modern-day charm school will be hosted by Mistress of Manners, Dana Gornitzki, Editor of MIEN Magazine – a website dedicated to etiquette, culture and style – along with a team of social graces specialists.
“The idea behind our new modern-day charm school is to show just how relevant social graces are in our fast-paced modern world,” says Dana Gornitzki. “At the Charm School, we invite people to learn practical skills from experts in a social and fun environment. Often, there is a bit of cringe-factor when the word ‘etiquette’ comes into play. However, posture, basic life skills such as home economics, and making a good impression are just as important as ever. Here, we want to make learning enjoyable, accessible and relevant in the busy lives we lead.”
During the day, the Charm School will be the perfect place to come read a book, enjoy tea and treats, write letters (or in your journal!), peruse art and other anecdotes left by visitors, or have a relaxed chat away from the busy streets of the city.
On select afternoons and evenings, the Charm School will feature a variety of “after-school” activities for grown-ups: an assortment of delightful happenings including sewing, posture tutorials, de-stressing clinics, soothing stretches, recipe exchanges and more.
Most importantly, the Charm School will be free of mobile telephones, computers and modern-day gadgets, making time for quality, face-to-face conversations and activities.
The Charm School will partially be furnished by ReStore – a north London community project that aids people in need. So, for those who want to take a piece of the Charm School home with them, some of the furniture will be for sale with all proceeds going to ReStore.
The Charm School will be welcoming visitors from September 14 - 22, 2011 at 18 Exmouth Market, London, EC1R 4QE
