About


Welcome to Creative Workshops - Yorkshire

Six years ago I was living in London with my husband and 2 small children, juggling a busy family life, alongside a full time job as a teacher.  Suddenly all that changed when my husband was offered his dream job in Leeds and we decided, as a family, to up sticks and relocate to beautiful Yorkshire.  My 15 year teaching career was put on hold and we then had 2 more additions to our lovely family, as well as 2 dogs and a cat!

As my children got older I decided it was time for me to pursue something different for myself.  I have always been passionate about Art and creating things, as well as learning new skills, and it was a dream of mine to be able to pursue these things as a new career.

So I set up and started running a drawing and painting class for adults, based in Harrogate, for one day a week.  I was fortunate enough to find a talented tutor in Jo, who helps to provide a warm and friendly environment for beginners to learn various aspects of drawing and painting. Having run the Art classes now for 2 years, they continue to go from strength to strength and we are continually oversubscribed as students come back term after term.

Following the success of the Art classes, I started running summer term workshops from my home in Whixley; a small picturesque village in North Yorkshire.  These took the form of drawing, painting and making workshops whilst enjoying simple tasty food.

I have always enjoyed entertaining and love to share my home with like minded people.

Before long The Creative Workshops - Yorkshire was born!

Going forward, I now have a carefully selected small group of women, who have similar interests and passions, who have joined me in hosting workshops in their beautiful homes across North Yorkshire. Where you can come to enjoy a peaceful day, developing your creativity, producing a wonderful piece of art or craft, whilst enjoying delicious home cooked food.  Who could resist that?
