A colourful Christmas at Create

Nov 21, 2023

There’s no let-up in the vibrant paint, pen and pencil strokes at West Bridgford’s popular Create! art school.


Run by talented artist and former school art teacher Helen Woodford out of her tailor-made North Road studio, Create is gearing up for a bumper Christmas and New Year programme of in-studio and online classes and workshops.


“I am delighted that Create! is going from strength to strength after a turbulent few years due to the coronavirus pandemic,” says Helen. “We are bringing colour and fun to people who need cheering up during these dark winter days. Our full Christmas programme includes special festive workshops and gift ideas for people who love art or fancy getting creative.”


The types of festive workshops include:


Lino Printed ‘Robin’ Christmas cards, bags and tags, Thursday 30th November 2023

Black and White Christmas Cards in gel pen, Saturday 2nd December 2023

Christmas Ribbon Wreath, Thursday 7th December 2023

Snow Globe Bauble in Needle Felt, Thursday 14th December 2023



Among eye-catching Create! Christmas gifts are attractive class and workshop vouchers, special three-month art school membership packages, and an array of easy-to-follow and highly enjoyable art lesson video courses.


“My growing number of in-studio and online class regulars say how much they enjoy my classes while supporting me as a local independent business owner. They love escaping hectic daily life via my varied art courses. They also enjoy meeting and chatting with friendly, like-minded others as they explore their creative talent in an attractive, comfortable, purpose-built studio.”


Helen’s in-studio and online art classes and courses are open to people of all ages and abilities, with her high-quality art class recordings allowing Create! art school members to pick up their paintbrushes, pens and pencils at any time of day, wherever they are.


“I’m so happy to announce that my children’s art classes have restarted after a little break and are going from strength to strength,” continues Helen. “My very affordable and inclusive monthly and annual Create! art school membership numbers have doubled over the past year following a highly successful re-launch. I see a particularly strong opportunity to grow the online side of Create!, bringing art-based happiness and enriched mental health to more and more people locally and further afield.”
