I set up Happy Planet Creative Arts in 2014 to enable people to explore the creative arts for the benefit of their own personal well-being, as well as mentoring people from crafting as a hobby to a business. Since the early days of working in a studio based in North Shields as well as trading at local fairs and markets, the business has grown and evolved to now being based in our lovely studio & gallery where I work and other artists sell their hand-crafted products.
I currently run the Arts with Friends group which meets on the first Sunday of the month. This regular group meet to explore their own creativity through different activities I provide and guide them through.
Poetry with Friends, which was our poetry appreciation group is taking a break, but I am happy to signpost to other poetry and writing activities if you need some help.
Our regular creative workshops are published each term, offering a choice of accessible opportunities to everyone who would like to try their hand at some creative fun.
We welcome approaches from local artists who are looking for an outlet for their work. If you would like to talk to me about this please drop me an email to arrange a convenient meeting.
