Happy Planet Creative Arts CIC is a shop with a working art studio and gallery, with works by a range of local artists that provides a unique and original gift shopping opportunity.
As well as these we also stock and support Fairtrade goods as our name supports the idea the ethic that we won’t harm the planet or people in the name of profit. Our prices range from £1 to £145. We stock original design cards that are hand printed, as well as a range of commercially produced cards. Our other stock includes jewellery, stationery, felted goods, sculpture, original prints, stained glass, ceramics, toiletries, and felting supplies, all brought to you with friendly and knowledgeable service by resident artist, Gail Curry.
We also deliver a range of fun creative workshops to help you relax and explore your own creative skills .......and if you think you have none, we can show you how to change that. If you would like to know more either sign up for our newsletter, or call in and take a look for yourself.
About Gail Curry, the founder of Happy Planet Creative Arts
I set up Happy Planet Creative Arts in 2014 to enable people to explore the creative arts for the benefit of their own personal well-being, as well as mentoring people from crafting as a hobby to a business. Since the early days of working in a studio based in North Shields as well as trading at local fairs and markets, the business has grown and evolved to now being based in our lovely studio & gallery where I work and other artists sell their hand-crafted products.
We currently run two groups, Poetry with Friends has a group which runs in the evening fortnightly on a Tuesday. We also have a Arts with Friends group which meets on the first Sunday of the month.
Our regular creative workshops are published each term, offering a choice of accessible opportunities to everyone who would like to try their hand at some creative fun, whether it is is literary or artistic.
We welcome approaches from local artists who are looking for an outlet for their work. If you would like to talk to me about this please drop me an email to arrange a convenient meeting.
