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

Spring is arriving, the days are getting longer and the weather’s getting warmer.  Why not get some creativity in your life at the beginning of a new decade!  Take the time for yourself to relax, be creative, meet new people and have someone else to clean up afterwards.

To book any of our workshops please call or email: 07792 033 156 or nell@artyfartyretreat.co.uk.  Or you can book online here.
