  • About M.Y.O

    Inspire | Relax | Create | Enjoy

    M.Y.O is an arts & crafts studio for adults, where you can “Make Your Own” creative ideas come to life, regardless of experience.

     

    Everyone is welcome. We can show you the way. Unleash your inner creativity!

    Guests can explore our range of creativities; from painting (paper, tiles or ceramics) and card making, to building ceramics, decoupage, t-shirt printing, adult colouring books and embroidery (and lots more). Materials, some guidance and equipment are included. You'll also enjoy the proven feel good mindfulness benefits of getting your creative fix. Aaaahhhh.

    We run drop in sessions where you can try different things or you can book into more guided sessions. There's a library stuffed with how-tos, inspiration and designs, too. Think of it as an art gym for your creative muscles.

    We're excited to launch our London Pop-Up, running on selected evenings from April - July 2017 @ re-creation LDN (SE1 1HA - 2 mins from Borough tube). Read on to find out more...we hope to see you soon.

    We’re delighted to announce that the highly esteemed Liberty Antonia will be running this session. She works with mediums of drawing, text and moving image to explore issues of 21st century body politics, with a focus on the experience of living in a female body in a ‘photo-shopped’ world; the new visual rhetoric of perfection through digital manipulation. Working within a socio-political context, her work uses character and playfulness to discuss themes of food, ‘femininity’ and sexuality.

    To grab your spot book here. £2.14 booking fee. 8 spots.

    Who and Why?

    The Team

    Co-Founders: Sam and Diana

    M.Y.O was born on a chilly New Year's day walk, as we pondered how nice it would be to have a place where we could chill out, finish our colouring books, maybe try out some some painting, even learn pottery...without household distractions (no tempting laundry!) or needing to buy lots of materials.

    We are both accountants - and true to the stereotype, our arts and crafts abilities were hardly extensive... but, we found creating and getting our hands dirty SO unbelievably relaxing, we had to share this experience with more people! In an increasingly digital age, we reckon lots of people, like us, want a tech-free place to unwind and what better way than by experiementing and making something cool.

    This is what M.Y.O is all about. We hope M.Y.O inspires you, helps you relax, unlocks your creativity and most of all, is a lot of fun!
