What people have said about these workshops:

’Johan creates an inclusive and non-judgemental space for  exploring one’s creativity. At the same time she was able to provide guidance and enourmous range of materials for experimentation. It was liberating and great fun’ Coletta C. 

‘Very easy going and relaxed, everything explained well and no pressure to ‘perform’ to a standard’ Jo.S 

‘Generally excellent’ Matt.K

Friendly encouraging environment. Now feel more confident to carry on exploring’ Zerina Y.

‘I loved being in that creative safe place and having permission to do what felt comfortable for me. It has encouraged me to explore and grow creatively after a long illness‘. Jane.G

The session gave me the opportunity to experiment with creativity’. Liz C.


My work can also be seen and bought at the following galleries:

 The Hayrack Gallery

Vitreus Art

Creativity Workshops and Retreats

Why I love to facilitate workshops is so others can try what happens if. I aim to create safe spaces to encourage people, especially those new to producing any artwork, to ‘find out what happens if’ we meditate and use ‘freeing’ art exercises with different mediums and materials? What does happen is exciting, fun and validating. And you never know it may start you on the road to your own personal adventure!

In 2019 I am running creativity workshops at Turvey Monastery, Turvey, Bedfordshire and ones from my own studio. To find out when the workshops are taking place or more details please see above or email me.

I also organise CREATIVITY INSPIRED ONE DAY RETREATS at Turvey Monastery, please see their website for details for 2019.

I also like to offer the international traveller an opportunity to stay in an English Village at my home and studio. Earls Barton has a long history dating back to the Doomsday Book with one of the oldest Saxon church spires in Europe. If you wish, you can meet others who live here, join us at meditation on Fridays, take part in creativity workshops as a part of a small group or one to one, visit the many country houses in Northamptonshire e.g. Althorp House. Enjoy country walks and pubs plus easily visit London, Oxford or Cambridge, all only one hour away by car or train. For further details please contact me.

Amenities: one double room with own bathroom and WiFi.
