The Studio

For almost a decade, I have wanted to open a creative studio in my home town of Luton. After some travel and searching abroad, the fire was reignited and in 2017 I took the first steps to realising that dream.

I searched high and low for a building to call home before settling on an old clothes shop I remember as a teenager. I assembled a team, a local mural artist and dance instructor and together, we have opened a new creative, community art group called ‘Little Red Creative Studios’. If you are familiar with the story of the Little Red Hen, you will have an insight into why we went with Little Red. Our vision is a simple one; 

‘To level the playing field, share knowledge and make the world a brighter place.’

We came into existence in April 2017,  took the keys to our building in November 2017 and after a little effort and a lot of patience, opened our studio doors to the public for for the first time on February 21st 2018 for a salsa class.

It has been a long, hard and arduous journey to this point. Highs and lows and everything in-between, moments when it felt like it would never come to pass but on February 21st , we saw the fruits of our labour for the first time and it was an excitement that was hard to describe.

If you have been following my social media channels elsewhere, you may have seen the transformation of the building. If you haven’t, here are a few before and after shots for you but before I depart, know this, do not be afraid to dream bigger and do one thing every day towards realising that dream and eventually you will see the reward for your bravery when others will have faltered.
