My Toolkit of Resources


Hi all,
Hope you are all OK and managing during these very challenging times. 

With that in mind, here’s  another activity for your children to do should they wish. 

Fill in the boxes with things that help them to feel better, so it might be listening to happy music, or watching the birds in the garden, or baking, or colouring etc etc. 

They can colour it in, draw symbols instead of writing, whatever works. Again, something useful to keep all their ideas in one place if they are feeling bad, so they have a reminder of what makes them feel good. 

Helpful to put on their bedroom wall?

Also, here is a link for a fab PDF from an American art website with 40 free pages of art ideas.

Stay well and hope to see you all again soon,  
Love Jo  



Every few days I hope to share some ideas for both children and adults, ideas to enhance well-being and ease anxiety. 

They will be simple ideas/prompts requiring a few basics for colouring in, or you can encourage you children to draw/write/ create your own without a template which will be even more enjoyable. 

Feeling safe is key to a child’s mental health and having this positive affirmation up on the wall is a helpful reminder. Do several and put them up in every room!I really hope they help in some way.

I know how valuable these words can be, so why not colour them in?!

If you think these kinds of art for well-being ideas could be useful to your friends/family/neighbours, please share.

Stay safe and well

New work from celebrated Wirral potter Carla Pownall

We are thrilled to have some new work arrive from Carla – her highly individual style has always been popular, and she remains an indefatigable creator of beautiful things.

We are particularly happy to have some of her new stoneware pieces that we’ve not shown before. They are stunning.


January 2020 – new work for Wonderful West Kirby show

We start the year with a small show featuring work that depicts West Kirby in all its glory.

From mixed media, found beach paraphernalia, to wildly colourful photographic representations of well known scenes, this show brings together well known, and not so well known artists.

Showing until mid February.

Some images here to give you a flavour of what’s on the walls right now.

Hope to see you soon.
