If like us regularly fall into a pinterest hole full to bursting of fun things to make, YOU could be just the person we are looking for to lead Painting and Creative/Craft Workshops in your area.

We are looking for smiley bubbly personalities to lead a variety of fun workshops which will consist of a mixture of painting workshops and craft projects, of which you will be taught how to make beforehand don’t worry.  You must be happy standing up in front of an audience to lead the workshop, be a confident painter with the ability to positively give pointers to help with progress or technique to anyone struggling.  Paintings are suited to beginners so we will not be asking you to lead anything daft like the painting of the Sistine Chapel.


So what is Artifex Creative?
Artifex Creative is a brand new addition to Artifex Designs born from the amount of people who have said ‘Wow your job is so fun… I want to learn how to do that!’  and why should we keep all the fun to ourselves.  
The Artifex Studio in Cranleigh and also our licenced base, will host workshops exactly the same as you only yours will take place in a variety of pubs, restaurants and social venues within your area.  The workshops will consist of a variety of painting parties as well as crafts such as wreath making, clay pot people, prosecco pineapples etc plus seasonally all the fun of Artifex Designs event theming and props including giant spiders, scarecrow making, spooky door wreaths plus Christmas decor and gifts.  During the parties/workshops guests will be encouraged to get a drink at the bar to enjoy whilst getting their creative juices flowing.


As well as bookable paint parties and creative workshops there may also be the opportunity for more one off events for hen parties, family get togethers, corporate workshops etc

Experience leading workshops may be helpful but is not essential.  Regular training will be provided. All kit and workshop materials are provided, including relevant Covid 19 PPE.  You must have your own transport with the ability to also transport the kit needed for each workshop and we will ask you to have space to keep a kit box at your home of which we will top up as and when you need it.
