Creative Confidence

January 23rd 1.30pm & Wednesday 10th February

Have you ever said to yourself or out-loud that you are not creative or you cannot draw...


If so, then this may be the course for you....


This experimental session will be a playful combination of curious exploration around the subject of creativity through story telling, anecdotes, questions, playful practical exercises with the intention of helping participants question any existing perceptions on this subject. You will be encouraged to free up, to let go and get the creative juices flowing without any pressure, just enjoying the freedom of creation for creations sake. 


Using personal experience of my own creative process as well as working with participants in creative workshops. Also drawing upon the work of different creativity commentators that I have read and seen over the years, this session will be an amalgamation of all of these sources. Whether you consider yourself a creative person and feel temporarily blocked or consider yourself non artistic in any way shape or form, let us join together, in a supportive, lighthearted and fun creative play session, where we leave perfectionism at the door and use this period of time to give some consideration to shaking up those stale road blocks. And have some creative fun at the same time! 


The aim of the course is to shine a light on and offer creative exercises to help you playfully jump over stumbling blocks to assist you begin or restart your own personal creative journey. Set within an encouraging, fun environment, listen to others experiences to help you think about your own creative process and spark some creation!

Mark Making

27th January 1.30pm and 20th February 3pm

Have you ever wanted to learn to draw but were unsure if you could?  Or where to start? Then this course is for you. 


Let us start from the very beginning...


In this course you will learn all of the very basic skills of how to create marks on your paper, that, with drawing exercises and practise, will lay the foundations for good, solid drawing techniques to take you throughout your creative journey. 


We will cover everything from the basic equipment required, how to hold your drawing tools and how mark making can gently ease you into the process of drawing. 


With gentle, enthusiastic baby steps, Stacey will guide you every step of the way.

Denman Participants - I NEED YOUR HELP! 

If you have been to any of my workshops, you will know I LOVE interacting with all of you and particularly seeing your work. I am lucky enough to say that I am now in regular communication with so many workshop participants that I haven't been able to get the new samples and projects made for Denman and other work started or completed as I am emailing more than creating.  So, I have had to rethink how to keep everyone served, be seen without a delay, get to share their work directly and instantly all without having to wait for me. 

Therefore, I have set up a private Facebook group called Art Sea Craft Sea Makes

You can copy this link to put into your website browser:


You can also join this group by searching on Facebook for Art Sea Craft Sea Makes


Once at the right page, request to join the group. I will accept your request and then, once you are on there, I would be so grateful if you could do the following: 

  • Share your beautiful creations! Anything you have made on a course or after a Denman session that was inspired by the workshop, even if a long time afterwards, I would be so grateful if you could take a picture of this work and post it in our supportive community to inspire and delight!

  • Support each other by liking or sending a kind word about each others creations. We all know how tricky it can be to put our work out in the World for people to see, so let us all become each others support system and cheerleading team. Positivity is catching, so spread it! :) 

  • Spread the word! If you know someone who would benefit from having more creativity in their lives, encourage them to join the group and see what other people are making. You could hopefully inspire them to join in creative activities themselves and keep the wave of creative practise going, because.....

Together We Rise 

Thanks so much, Stacey
