  • 5 star review  Just spent a fantastic afternoon at Happy Planet Creative Arts Winter Workshops at Boo Boo & Ted, Whitley Road in Whitley Bay. My first introduction to the art of Needle Felting with Gail Curry. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it, I was made to feel very welcome, really relaxed atmosphere, excellent tuition and I would highly recommend anyone who is thinking about doing Felting, be it Needle or Wet Felting to get themselves enrolled with Gail, she is a Natural. Thanks Gail, I've found my niche, and I will be watching for news of the next Course..Keep in Touch. Pauline Horsefield.

  • positive review  I have been meaning to call in for ages and when I finally made it I was like a kid in a sweet shop ooohing and ahhing over all the beautiful things. I went in for a birthday present for a friend and came away with something for her and myself. It has also given me loads of ideas for presents for others so I will definitely be back soon. I was amazed at the quality and price of things and it is lovely to be able to buy something that is handmade locally.

  • 5 star review  Bought two felt pictures as Christmas presents this year. Both were fully appreciated by the recipient's; my Mum, in particular, falling in love with the winter landscape I chose for her. Thanks to Gail for all creative work on these. Mike

  • positive review  I normally love to browse in Creative Planet, Gail has the shop beautiful, the items for sale are a mixture of beautiful locally made and fair trade arts and crafts and everything is well displayed. Due to the recent pandemic, I decided to shop online. The website really reflects the shop - beautiful items all well displayed. I placed my order on the Friday and received it really promptly on the Monday. I’m really happy with the items, the cards are perfect for my friends upcoming birthdays. My little girl will love the puppet and I treat myself to some lovely lavender soap too which smells divine. Thank you Gail ☺️

  • 5 star review  I love visiting Happy Planet Creative Arts and it is my 'go to' place for gifts that are unique, and with the added bonus that they are locally made. I never come out empty handed as I can never resist treating myself as well as whoever I went in to buy a gift for! Congratulations Gail on providing a welcoming space and offering something that is different.

  • 5 star review  A wonderful little shop, that promotes and sells products by local artists and runs craft workshops to create more of them! The owner Gail's own journey as an artist is an inspiration to all who seek self expression through art.
