Creative INSET Days
No Added Sugar delivers popular creative inset days for teaching staff, youth workers and businesses.
This challenging day will allow all participants to develop and demonstrate creative skills, in the context of a safe level playing field, beyond their work-based positions, talents and expectations. We will challenge the misconception that creativity and talent are the same. As artists we are conscious that our creativity comes from being in a specific chosen mindset and that in itself forces us to be creative.
We create a relaxing atmosphere and start with simple techniques to ensure that everyone achieves. Workshops include:
- Stone carving
- Collaborative pieces

Creative INSET Day Projects
I previously believed that I had no art skills at all and would never have willingly taken part in any kind of art project. I never dreamed I would make anything as wonderful as this sculpture. I am just so proud of it. I have also painted my own portrait and everyone who comes to my house says it’s just amazing. I have a completely different outlook on art since I have been working in partnership with No Added Sugar. Simone Mathews, Splash co ordinator
This was a really fun day where staff, who were terrified about taking part, thoughoughly enjoyed the process and left feeling really proud of their achievements. I would highly recommend No Added Sugar for corporate training days; the benefits were fantastic. Alan Robinson, Virtual Vet Consultants

A word from the artists
Something magical happens during our creative days that we cannot put into words, where even the most reluctant participant goes home proudly clutching their masterpiece and believing that they are an artist.
We provide all materials, inspiration, guidance and wealth of experience to make the day a creative exploration in a team environment where personal barriers are broken down, in an effort to approach problem solving in a different way.
You provide the venue, refreshments, participants (in old clothes) and a willingness to try something different.
