Updated July 22nd

All sessions are at our workshop (4 Markfield Road Ratby LE60LP) unless stated otherwise. PLEASE park on the drive. Please note that we do have dogs; they all love a cuddle if you wish but they are shut away when you arrive and depart, and we can provide anti histamines! 

Closed toe shoes are a must, and we provide and recommend goggles.

Sensible young people aged over 13 are welcome at any session, otherwise please bring younger people to our family friendly sessions.

Open sessions require booking but you make what you like on the day. Larger projects (over 40 cm x 40 cm) need booking in advance and require a double space therefore you will need to book 2 places.

Please let us know if you do not want photos of your work used on our page or elsewhere, or if you believe you have created an original design and don’t want it to be used as inspiration to others.

Price list for Open Sessions appears after the list of dates.

HOW TO BOOK: Choose your date and email smartsy@hotmail.co.uk to arrange a non refundable deposit - check your spam for replies please!

At our discretion we will transfer (and if we can sell your places we will refund) your deposit, but there is a £5 admin fee to do so. This is in response to an increasing number of customers asking to change their bookings, we hope you understand.

5 star 

Just home from a wonderful morning with Smartsy. We did a printing workshop. Was a lovely holiday activity to do WITH my daughter and we've both come home with pieces of art we are thrilled with!Fantastic workspace, great teacher. We will definitely go again and would highly recommend.

5 star

My 10 year old is loving the Saturday morning art workshops. A really lovely calm and relaxing atmosphere to explore her creativity. Each week gives her a different opportunity to create a masterpiece. She is very pleased and proud of her pieces of art so far. I would very much recommend.

Doing art with mrs Groschl/smARTsy is really fun. It's exciting to explore different materials. I really liked using mod rock and putting special paint onto a wet piece of paper and watching it explode. I'm really proud of some of the pieces of art she has helped me create. - Maya Watson 10
