Liz Million

Liz Million is a fantastically funny and lively illustrator and author of children’s books that loves to get creative. She claims to be able to draw any animal in the world and will gladly show you how to draw them skateboarding or break dancing!

Liz likes to think that she has THE best job in the world. When she isn’t painting and writing books in her studio in Darlington, she spends a lot of time travelling the world talking to eager children in amazing schools, libraries and museums. Liz has created some lovely drawing sheets and a cool craft video especially for Theatre Hullabaloo this Christmas.

Nicola Cowley

Hi I’m Nicola and I’m the artist behind my small business @pegcreations based in North East of England.  I have a moving pop up shop, online shop and also provides a wide range of workshops that incorporates creativity and ecological awareness by using the 3 R’s: reduce waste, reuse resources, and recycle materials.

Pui Lee

Based in Gateshead, Pui Lee is a visual artist working in 2D and 3D artforms including drawing, printmaking and craft! She loves to play with materials (-like paper and cardboard!), experiment and above all, to creative problem-solve.

Her mission in life is to “empower others through creativity!” and she loves to help people of all ages get creative too! Over the years, Pui Lee has also exhibited and sold work both nationally and internationally; and she is also a dedicated martial artist outside of the studio too!

Laura Connolly

Hi, I’m Laura – musician, dancer and early years practitioner.

I love music, dancing, making up songs and I have been delivering music sessions all over the North East for over 15 years. In that time, delivering sessions for Sage Gateshead, Sightlines Initiative, English Folk Dance and Song Society, South Tyneside Adult and Community Learning and even Cbeebies!

As my maternity leave was coming to an end, I decided to set up my own preschool music business creating Little and Loud in February 2018.

I absolutely love the excitement and challenges that come with running my own classes, it’s so rewarding to be doing it on my own and I’m having such a great time meeting lots of lovely littlies with their grown-ups!

With thanks to...

We would love to hear your feedback!
