Creative Nature HQ is a London based creative space that offers a range of craft courses that help to develop new skills and a knowledge of a wide variety of natural materials and processes. These activities can help deepen a sense of well-being through connection to natural materials and simple repetitive actions.
My name is Stephen Stockbridge, I run Creative nature HQ, I'm a trained sculptor and worked as an engineer. I have over 30 years of experience professionally making and teaching.
"A wonderful afternoon with 4 other 'students' and Stephen who had patience and humour in his teaching us. Calm, peaceful, non-competitive, joyful, relaxed but also focused, the time sped by and could have stayed for hours. One of the best afternoons of my summer. "
"Really enjoyed our spoon carving. Lots of freedom to design a spoon ourselves and choose the piece of wood to use, and learnt how to use a variety of tools. Our spoons weren't finished by the end of the session, but we've brought them home to finish ourselves, and have been told what we need to do. We were lucky that the other people didn't show up to our class, so it was just the two of us, so we got a lot of individual help. "
Creative Nature HQ responded:
" Thank you Penny a lovely gentle session, I do hope you managed to finish your Spoon's!
All the best
"A beautiful experience carefully created by Stephen to be gentle and kind. Stephen is an excellent teacher, recognising participant's strengths (and weaknesses!) encouraging and supportive as well as being charming, generous and enjoying a giggle.
I definitely recommend for anyone looking for a fully holistic experience."
