Shimmering Studio is described as a creative retreat to house a variety of courses and workshops throughout the year.

This will range from sewing to pattern creation, silk painting, embroidery, beading, life drawing, sketching, fashion illustration, furniture painting, mosaic, and Christmas wreath making.

Owner Siân Hughes-Cooke is keen to promote mindfulness activities, hosting yoga and meditation.

There will also be events, such as talks and cinema screenings.

She wants to inspire everyone’s “artist within”: “Our aim is to channel confidence and skill to all abilities. We wish to collaborate with like minded people whilst having fun learning, creating and exchanging ideas.”

The studio was launched on November 15 at a party attended by about 130 people. Shimmering Studio is on Chiltern Green Road.

Siân added: “It was an amazing experience, I was overwhelmed by the turn out and the support.”

A wedding dress designer, Siân also owns Shimmering Ivory bespoke bridal couture on Derwent Road in Harpenden.
