Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the studio is closed temporarily and all workshops are postponed.  Please see our facebook page for live weekday tutorials, free of charge.  Creativity is going to be so important for all our mental health in the coming days, weeks and possibly months.  You can also still book private lessons delivered via online platforms. 

For anyone who would like to donate to Arty Farty Retreat to keep this awesome creative community space going until we can all come back to it,  please find the link below. If you are able to donate £30 or more please leave your email address in the comment so I can send you an Arty Farty mug painted by yours truly!! Thank you for your support, Nell x


We offer private individual sessions to help you express yourself using different types of creative exercises.  This is not a formal counselling or art therapy but rather an exploration of your creativity that therapeutically helps you express how you’re feeling. 

We have previously worked with adults and children who have been struggling with: illness; grief; gender identity; being new to parenthood; dying; depression; anxiety; bullying; stress.

To find out if this would be useful to you or your loved one, please contact us on our How to Find Us page or email Nell@artyfartyretreat.co.uk

The majority of sessions will last 1 hour maximum and occur weekly for a set number of weeks.  However we will look at what works for your individual needs and agree this with you when we first meet.  Each 1 hour session costs £35
