While we might not be able to head out and about, there’s still plenty of things to do at home this May.
As the temperature drops and we continue to adjust to life at home, we thought there’s no better time to learn something new from the comfort of your couch. Whether you’d like to get cooking, master the art of coffee or get moving, we’ve found the best masterclasses, workouts, film festivals and more to attend (from home) this May.
