Covid Update 5/11
The studio is closed due to the new England lockdown rules, until 3rd December.  There are some workshops still taking place online, and some that have been postponed.  Please still contact us to book workshops in December and beyond – but bear with us in responding.  During this lockdown we will be doing free sketchbook tutorials every weekday at 5pm via our facebook page.

It’s been a hard year so far – why not brighten it up your winter with some creativity!  If you’re taking some time for yourself, learning a new skill or creating a Christmas gift for your loved ones, we’ve got your covered.

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 see our eventbrite page here and book online.  Alternatively please call or email: 07792 033 156 or nell@artyfartyretreat.co.uk.
