Nicky is an award winning artist and a very experienced teacher. She has an Art degree, a PGCE, and 29 years experience teaching Art to both children and adults. Her workshops are relaxing, creative and fun but also informative and her in depth instruction enables you to take what you have learnt and apply it to your own practise.

Nicky runs a range of different workshops depending on your experience or requirements. She works at your pace and provides all the information and materials you need to complete your work at home if you don't finish during the allocated time. 


Nicky runs most of these workshops from her garden studio where you can see a range of examples of her Wildlife Wool Paintings. She can also travel on request to come to you - most commonly to run organised art workshops for societies or large groups.


If you would like to witness how Nicky creates her wool paintings on canvas and would like to work beside her to create your own piece please contact her to book any of the following workshops.

Cancellation Policy

Should you need to cancel a Workshop.

My aim is to provide creative days out that are good value for money. As a small business I have a clear non-refundable policy to ensure costs are covered and the ongoing viability of my workshops are protected.

If you contact me 14 days or more prior to the date of your workshop I will be very happy to offer you a transfer to an alternative workshop, providing there are places. If there are no suitable workshops or dates available at that time I will issue you with a voucher that can be used for future bookings.

I appreciate that unforeseen circumstances can sometimes arise at short notice which may mean you cannot attend a workshop. If this happens I am more than happy for a friend to take you place. Please inform me of their name and contact details prior to the workshop.

My right to cancel a policy.

Should I need to cancel a workshop due to unforeseen circumstances I will aim to give you as much notice as possible. I will be in touch to reschedule the workshop to suit all attendees. If it not possible to reschedule you will be offered an alternative workshop or if there is not a date suitable you will be given a full refund for the cost of the workshop.
