Full & half-day workshops

Learn new creative skills in a professional artist's studio


  • Ever fancied having a go at decoupage?
  • Wanted to try your hand at furniture upcycling?
  • Wondered how to create a successful collage in mixed-media?
  • Dreamt of playing with paints and printing?

You can try all of these things with me, in my studio, which is full of inspiration and all the source materials you could possibly need.

I will provide most of the basic materials and equipment, but feel free to bring a project with you if you prefer.

Book a workshop with Pembrokeshire artist Clare 'CHOC' Howell


I offer full-day or half-day creative sessions

in a relaxed and informal environment .


My studio is part of my home, with safe

off-road parking. 

If you may be allergic to cats or dogs you should know that we have both here.

  • I welcome adults  of all ages and (reasonably well-behaved!) children with a genuine interest in exploring creativity.
  • I find that a group of up to six people works well for everyone.


 PLEASE CALL ME ON 07534 441152

Relax, Enjoy, Play, Create!

Hot and cold refreshments will be available to keep your creative juices flowing!
