Sometimes it feels like we are living in the fast lane ALL THE TIME. People are reporting increased feelings of anxiety, screen obsession and isolation. But what can be done? I find being creative and making art is one answer. It can help children be better students and improve quality of life for adults too. It relieves stress, encourages creative thinking, boosts self-esteem and provides a sense of accomplishment and community. It can make you an all-around happier person.

 I run creative workshops with wellness in mind. All of my workshops will teach you a skill, you will learn in a fun inclusive way and you will go home with a finished item to show or use. It doesn’t matter if you are artistic or not I will guide you through every stage. I have 30 years experience in the design industry and am keen to pass on my love of creativity. Join me in a class soon for the chance to create, live in the moment, to stop and reset.
