We ask that you remember that we are a home based business run by someone with chronic illnesses. Many of our visitors are also immune compromised. Please do not visit the studio if you are unwell in any way, have recently had a covid test and are awaiting the results or have been in contact with someone who has been unwell.

Thank you for your understanding.

Why Do a Workshop with Us?
Here’s what makes us different from other creative spaces.

  •  All our Tutors are experienced in teaching and have many years of experience working with their respective mediums/in their field of expertise – for most of our tutors this is over 15 years experience.
  • Our workshop sizes are always small with no more than 10 students (at the moment we are running at no more than 8 due to covid);
  • We provide a friendly, inviting space and cater for many challenges you may face  (health issues, food intolerances, anxiety, etc, etc.). Many of our students (and some of our tutors) suffer from chronic illness and have special needs. If you have any concerns, please feel free to reach out to Dani who will do her best to help you out;
  • We have a garden space that can be helpful to those who are on the autism spectrum or experience sensory overload – it can be a good space to retreat to in order to reset before returning to your workshop. We also have our studio pup – Kenzi Mae (our 18 month old Golden Retriever) who is always happy to have cuddles, chase the ball etc.
  • We use only high quality materials/products in our workshops and myself and our Tutors are familiar with how these work and can give you accurate information/answers to your questions;
  • We offer payment plan options on most workshops as we understand that finances can be tight;
  • We are fully insured and there is always someone on site who has a Level 2 first aid qualification and asthma management training. All tutors who are working with children have current, valid Working with Children Checks.
  • We offer ‘after workshop’ support for all our students. Students can ask questions of our tutors and refresh any information they need to after the workshop via email, phone or in our Facebook group especially for students.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out.
We look forward to seeing you at the Studio very soon!
