Hana Vasak

Gallery Administrator and ceramic artist.

Working from home can definitely be a positive. Over the years I have come to enjoy the solitary nature of having a home studio. It has allowed me to embrace having a relaxed routine including creating my own working hours, at times working in my PJ’s.

I actually flourish well with very little noise. I live in an old house in Preston with lots of trees so there are always birds chatting, even at night.

Yilin Zhao

Yilin Zhao is a Linden's volunteers. She has now entered her second month of self-isolation in China and provided us with this update.

As I have kept self-isolation for nearly two months, I have to find myself something to do at home - I'm now taking French classes with my tutor online every weekday afternoon!

Food obsession!

Keep healthy and creative during your isolation. The kitchen is the place to be.
