Creative Social Groups & Workshops - Shop

***Please note that bookings are non refundable or transferable and I am unable to send 'kits' if you are unable to attend***


Physical in person Creative groups that take place at my home address in my garden studio in Kirkby in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, UK.

In the Creative Social group the emphasis is very much on the social, mindful and welbeing side and is a great opportunity to meet and connect with like minded creatives over a cup of tea and a piece of cake.....and of course we always make something nice and learn new skills and tips whilst we chat and relax.

The projects are mostly textile related with a dabble into mixed media at times and mostly based around reusing vintage materials and repurposing them into pretty things.  All materials needed for the projects are included in the price of the session.....although you are very welcome to bring things of your own you may wish to add in.  The cabin/studio is a cosy, relaxing and intimate space which inspires creativity.  Each group has a maximum of six people so no overwhelming crowd and everyone gets plently of attention should they wish for it.  Many new friendships have been forged in there and happy chilled out customers return time after time.  Think of it as creative therapy.

If you'd like to step out of the busy modern world for a couple of hours or so and treat yourself to some valuble 'me time' then peruse the list of dates and projects and see if there's something that suits you.  We'd love to see you.

Once you have booked and paid I will send you email confirmation and full address details so you may find the venue.  Please be sure to read the Terms and Conditions and feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Suzanne Curtis Textile Art – Workshop and Creative Social Group Terms and Conditions

Workshop and Creative Social Group Bookings and Attendance……

 All Workshops and Creative Social Groups are to be paid for in full in advance to reserve your place. By booking a place on the workshop or group you are agreeing to the terms and conditions set out below. I will email you a confirmation of your booking.

All bookings are non-refundable. The exception to this is if there are insufficient numbers to run the workshop/group or if I am forced to cancel the workshop/groups due to myself being unwell, Covid-19 restrictions or other exceptional circumstances.  I reserve the right to do this. If this should arise, I will give as much notice as possible and you will be offered a refund or a transfer to another workshop/group date.

Workshops take a great deal of prior planning and preparation on the part of myself. Therefore, all participant cancellations forfeit their workshop/group fee. As a very small business it is extremely difficult for me to absorb these costs and keep my prices low.

At present there will be a maximum of 6 participants on each date. The minimum required to run the event will be 3. Should the minimum number not be achieved I will contact you as per above.  The minimum age requirement for participants is 16 years of age.

If you are unable to attend your booked workshop or group please contact me as soon as possible to let me know. If I can successfully resell you place then I can offer you a refund or possibly a transfer to another date. Alternatively, you may send someone else in your place but please inform me of who this will be so I can ensure they have all the necessary details.

Please do not attend if you have tested positive for Covid-19.

What’s Included…….

All materials and tools needed for the projects are provided. There may be certain projects where you would like to add in your own materials or ephemera for example and you are very welcome to bring them and use them. If you wish to bring your favourite scissors or needles etc then you may do so. Don’t forget to bring spectacles if needed for close work.

Refreshments are provided such as water, tea, coffee, cake or biscuits. Cake/biscuits may be made in a kitchen where nut products are stored and used. I will try my best to accommodate dietary requirements should you inform me of this although it may not always be possible.

The Venue and Accessibility…….

All workshops and groups take place in my cabin in the garden. It is fairly snug and cosy but comfortable with 6 participants.

The cabin is reached by a path down the side of the house and there are a small number of steps down the garden to reach it. Unfortunately, it is not wheelchair accessible.

I am situated on a residential road so parking must be made with consideration for neighbours. You may park on my driveway and in front of our house should there be space.

Intellectual Property…….

You agree not to reproduce, copy, duplicate to sell or resell any of the projects or part of the service.  Therefore you may not go into business by making copies of my work, the projects made on the workshops/groups or running the same workshops/groups using my ideas.  You may of course use the ideas and skills learned to create items for yourself for pleasure or gifts for friends and family.
