Do you love shapes, colours and patterns?

Book yourself onto a relaxing, creative evening out with your friends. Come and make your own foam and rubber stamp shapes and get down with making patterns. You’ll soon be stamping your own wrapping paper, book covers, cards and more. 

During this stamp making workshop you will draw some designs on paper, then transform them into versatile little wooden stamps using foam and rubber sheet, glue, scissors, scalpels and simple wooden blocks. You’ll then spend the rest of the session playing with creating your own pattern designs with acrylic paints and paper. They can be as simple or as complex (within reason!) as you like. 

After this session you’ll be able to get creative at home and stamp your own designs on fabric or paper. 

Materials list 

Materials for making the stamps along with paper and pencils will be provided. You may like to bring your own sketchbook if you have one, for doodling down your ideas into.

Easter Holiday Family Art Workshop in Ermington, South Hams, Devon.

Anyone who knows me in real life will be able to tell you that I LOVE COLLAGE and I LOVE POP_UPs! This Easter school holiday I get to do both and hopefully inspire others too, as I’m running a workshop to create a wonderful, colourful, magical paper collage pop-up flower jungle.

Using both upcycled and new papers you will make a jungle of your own.

This workshop is suitable for anyone who can use scissors and glue, wants to use their imagination, and wants to have fun making art! Under 7s will need to be accompanied by an adult. Any participating adults will also need to purchase a place.

Spaces are limited, so book yours today, by clicking HERE

Join in the fun on Tuesday 9th April 10 – 12 at Ermington Store Community Space.

I’ve actually been digging out some old collages and pop-ups that I made years ago. One day I’ll get around to putting the collages up for sale on my website!

Summer workshops… making a cover for a little sketchbook

Really simple… print some paper with nice colours and patterns, cover a little sketchbook with it and make a little expanding envelope, stick it in, smile, and voila! Now you have a special book to record all your musings, doodling, stick momentoes into…

A veryveryvery quiet workshop as everybody was away on holidays (though when you live in Devon, you don’t REALLY need to go away anywhere on holiday!)

Summer workshops… butterfly symmetry printing

This was my busiest workshop of the summer… I’m not sure how many people came but it was BUUUUSY, lots dropping in throughout the morning, this was another one run with Bovey help hub. I didn’t manage to get photos of everybody’s work, but what I’ve got images of here is great

I did little demos of how to do symmetrical printing, showed them where all the sequins, glue and collage bits were, then left them to it… again i absolutely LOVE what the kids came up with… I hope all these beautiful works of art have pride of place brightening up their homes around Bovey Tracey.

Summer workshops… loom making and weaving

OK, so when I planned this session I hadn’t really thought through the noise that a room full of kids hammering nails into wooden blocks would make 😳

…. next time I’ll take earplugs 😆

BUT!!! Look at what they made! I’ve never had such a quiet, concentrated art club (after all the hammering) as this one, wow they worked sooo hard and the results are INCREDIBLE. First they painted their wooden blocks, then hammered in nails, strung up their wefts with wool, then got to work with weaving. I’m so impressed with how hard they worked on this one.

Summer Workshop – Funky aliens/party people/superheroes…

Just a few of the absolutely amazing creations that were made at Bovey Help Hub art workshop number 1 in the summer holidays. I just rocked up with some laser cut white cardboard body parts, some split pins and a whole heap of pens, pencils, sticky labels, collage papers, glue and more, and the kids got on with turning the blank white bits into wild characters. I absolutely loved doing this. I’m always so impressed with kids creativity and imagination when you give them art materials and the freedom to just do what they want, in a safe space.

Summer Holiday Workshops…

HOORAY! Booking is open for my summer holiday art workshops… they have all been added to my shop in the art workshops section. All the details are underneath the images on my website, but if you have any questions please just ask. The workshops are open to both children and adults. Children under 7 need to have an adult stay with them, unless it’s been agreed with me prior to arriving. This is partly to make sure they are able to complete the project independently. As it’s just me running the workshops, I’m unable to give a huge amount of one-to-one attention to younger children who may need extra help.

I very much look forward to welcoming you over the summer!

I have several DBS checks, public liability insurance and an up to date first aid certificate.

Parties Flier…

Prices starting at £120. Price varies depending on activity/number of children. Just get in touch to discuss further! 🙂


Great news, I am now offering Art Parties!

Perfect for children who don’t enjoy the huge noisy village hall parties and want something a bit different. They can make something to treasure. Activities can be discussed and tailored to suit needs.

Not just for children though, adults also enjoy a bit of creative fun and love to do something completely different from their daily life… Also great for staff ‘bonding’ days.

Fun Arty games, Clay, Printing, Collage and much, much more available.

For prices and to discuss ideas, just get in touch with me either via my contact form, or email
