Ruth Hawkes - Ruth's Arty Experience

Mostly when you make something you're very concerned with the end result. Especially if you are planning on selling it to someone else. Many a crafter may tell you that this can sometimes take the fun out of making things.

But not in Ruth Hawkes world. For Ruth, process is key. In the process you find fun, learning, experimentation, creativity and joy. And who are the experts on joy? Yes, the wee ones.

Ruth's Arty Experience are process art workshops for children aged 18 months to 5 years old. Ruth facilitates workshops where children's creativity can run wild in ways you may never have thought to try at home. Painting on fizzy ice and using cornflour to make gloppy pictures, you have to see it to believe it.

Ruth is a mum of two and enjoys trying out her workshops at home, lucky kids eh. Before having her children Ruth worked as an Occupational Therapist for 12 years, specialising in working with children for over 8 years. She has always enjoyed producing artwork and being a designer-maker of many things from jewellery, cards and felt pieces to painted material wall hangings and ceramic sculptures. A woman of many talents as you will see!
