My children have now attended more than one session and have absolutely loved them. The art and crafty classes are fun, informative and engaging and they are asking to go back for more. There is appropriate activities for the range of ages and abilities and Jazz makes them feel confident and inspired. What a well equipped little studio in a great setting. We will be back for more!

We visited Smart Penguin two weeks ago with our four- and six-year-olds. What a fantastic way for my children to get creative on a rainy day. My daughter loves anything arty and knows exactly what she wants to achieve, but my son is a bit of a perfectionist and takes a while to warm up to new things. Jazz has the most lovely way with kids. She helped Sidney design something he was really proud of and let him take the lead. Can't wait to go back next weekend!

My granddaughter enjoyed her first visit to the studio and asked to return the next day. It’s a pity she doesn’t live nearer, as she would love to go regularly. A great facility for creative children.

Smart Penguin Studio - About us

Design. Make. Explore

Our Mission: ‘To provide an inspiring space for children to explore ideas, learn new skills and develop their own creativity’ 

Smart Penguin Studio is an inspiring and fun space, where children can explore, experiment and develop a wide range of creative ideas. We run after-school, weekend and holiday workshops in:

Arts and Crafts
Product Design
Drawing Skills

It’s hard to fit creativity into our busy lives. Today’s families work harder than ever and there’s very little time in schools for children to explore their ideas. With children spending so much time on their screens, it’s more important than ever to help them switch off their devices and get creative.

For me, the hours I spent as a child making and creating something of my own were those I enjoyed and remember the most but, most importantly, they gave me the most self-confidence! I went on to be an Art and Design teacher and, as a result, have had the most rewarding experiences with children and adults of all ages and backgrounds.

Visit Smart Penguin Studio on Facebook for information about our workshops, daily updates and bookings, and follow us on Instagram @smartpenguinstudio to see some of our amazing creations.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
