If you would like to explore your creative side, I run a series of themed workshops for all abilities. They are fun and relaxed and aimed at providing a place where you can express yourself and, pick up some art tips.

The Pause and Paint workshops and Day Retreats are a great way to unwind and have some ‘me’ time!

Create from the Soul

Do you love the energy of trees and nature, if so you will love this workshop. We will be forest bathing so we can relax and reconnect with the healing properties of nature.

Just 15 minutes can soothe our souls so we can express our creative nature. You don’t need to be able to paint or draw as what you create is unique to you.

In my past workshops people who have said they are not creative have produced some amazing work! All art equipment is supplied and you get a free art kit to take away with you so you can continue your creative journey.

I can’t believe I created it!

Thanks to Ruth for a wonderful art workshop yesterday! Thanks for your patience and all the golden nuggets of hints and tips. I’ve come away with not only a lovely painting that I can’t believe I created, but also with more confidence than I arrived with, plus heaps of enthusiasm to just get painting on my own. I’m looking forward to the next opportunity to paint with you. Lot’s of love.
