A big thankyou to OLLIE, I discovered them online during the pandemic whilst feeling isolated and very low after losing my creative business due to ill-health. They have helped me to feel more social, to relax, to lessen my anxiety and depression, to learn a brand new creative skill and to feel inspired and happy about art again! Superb tutors and highly affordable classes.

These classes are exactly what I expected – peaceful, meditative, and creative.
I love it, nice to feel the group support and do something so absorbing. Quiets my mind chatter!
It’s helping me to be less isolated, helps keep my hand joints moving as I have hand issues, helps me express creatively as am an artist who lost my business due to health, helps me relax. I’m unwaged currently but I pay because it really is affordable and I want it to continue. The teachers are awesome.
