Who We Are
Classes and workshops are run by Ellie, founder of Chesil Creative and a qualified teacher with a passion for all things creative:
“I am really excited to be able to offer you all the opportunity to explore and develop your creative side, as taking the time and space to immerse yourself in crafting something new and unique is one of life’s pleasures that everyone really must experience. I have always held a love and passion for making and creating, and have spent much of my free time exploring and expanding these skills throughout my life. I worked in photography, film-making and digital imaging before turning my hand to teaching and I now absolutely love combining my wealth of art and craft knowledge with my teaching expertise to provide fun, progressive and inspirational lessons for all ages and abilities. I look forward to being able to share many new, creative experiences with lots of you, helping your artistic abilities grow and watching your confidence flourish.”
Ellie holds a First-Class Degree in Primary Education with a specialism in Art and Design. During her four years as a teacher, she taught a variety of ages across key stages one, two and three, including time spent as an Art and Design & Technology teacher at a local middle school. Ellie is DBS (formally CRB) checked, holds a Paediatric First Aid certificate and has public liability insurance.
