  • Happy Planet is the perfect place to pick up a meaningful gift that is full of soul: one off pieces of art that are really affordable. There is a wonderful sense of community and inclusion about the place. Gail is a remarkable lady and she will gladly make you feel welcome and accepted in her space (I say "space" because it's much more than a shop.) Check out the variety of workshops as well. Gail is a creative and an encourager who I don't doubt will facilitate a really productive and enjoyable session for anyone, regardless of skill or experience. If you're in Whitley Bay make sure you go out of your way to visit.

  • Had a splendid evening making felt baubles for Christmas here - it was lovely to get back into having a bit of a play, and under Gail's gentle guidance, managed to make something I'm happy to hang on my tree!

  • Thank you Gail for a very enjoyable and relaxing evening spent at your needle felting workshop. I have always wanted to have a go at needle felting and was pleased to discover that you were holding workshops in your beautiful new shop just around the corner. I am delighted with my little robin and will certainly be back again to try another craft.

  • 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.
