Virtual Classes and Groups North Leeds

Virtual Classes and Groups

Online classes, virtual classes and zoom classes and groups for Baby, toddler and school-aged children in North Leeds and Wetherby. 


Whilst we are not able to meet in person, why not get your creative fix with your little ones at home with our ARTventurers at home option for this New Year term!

We have an option for our baby ARTventurers (6-18 months) which will take place on Zoom class and our little ARTventurers (18 months plus), which will take place in a private Facebook group. If you have school age children at home, why not get them involved as well- they will love what we do!

Each little artist gets a fantastic 5 week resource pack filled with all the lovely art materials needed to complete the original and engaging themed activities week by week! All you will need is some painting tools at home to use.

Then we have guidance notes, weekly class videos and of course our termly showstopper activity which our ARTventurers will be working over the course of the term to create a precious keepsake to treasure.

All this for just £35, including free delivery to all North Leeds postcodes.

Make this the most colourful lockdown yet by joining our ARTventurers at home online term!

Mummy Me Time provides emotional support and a postpartum community.  We are here to teach Mums of young children manageable action steps to regain self identity, enabling them to reconnect with themselves and create more balance in their wonderful (crazy busy!) Mum life.

  • Zoom BABY MASSAGE starting Thursday mornings.
    • 10AM Class for NEW STARTERS ON A FREE TRIAL: Introduction to benefits of baby massage and important information to be aware of.
      Week 1 we learn to massage baby’s legs and feet. Email me or message on Facebook  for zoom details
    • 11.15AM For those who have attended the first class(or have done my class before). We will massage tummies and give techniques for easing colic plus recap on the trial class. £5 a session and pay-as-you-go throughout lockdown. Email here.
  • MUMMY ME TIME TRIBE Fortnightly zoom calls, wellbeing tips and motherhood emotional support insights (first call free taster).
  • Zoom MUMMY CHAT, informal discussion group (pressure release!) for Mums of young children. Meet like-minded Mums, share home schooling tips and sanity saving tricks! Thursday evenings at 8pm (free of charge trial).
We are here to identify the feelings you’ve been feeling. The Mum you are now but also the Woman you’ve always been. To give you a framework to describe the mix of emotions you’ve felt during your Motherhood journey. Yes, being a Mum is possibly THE most incredible life transition a woman will experience, but let’s not ignore the fact that it is also, THE most challenging one too.
In all our preparations for becoming a Mum, we don’t tend to consider what it will mean for our self identity. The importance of making time for our needs too, allowing ourselves time to recharge. After all, when your energy is low… how will you be at your best, for those you love?
We all need time Mummies.
We all need a community.
We all need to feel heard and understood. We all need to understand and process the mix of emotions Motherhood brings. We all need friendship and to learn self compassion.
Mummy Me Time is here for you. Here in the good days, the ‘meh’ days and those god damn ugly days!

 “It was the highlight of our week”

My ‘virtual boogie’ classes aren’t like your regular online sessions… They were voted one of the BEST in the country by the INDEPENDENT!! They are high energy and full of fun! My sessions are pre-recorded and not ‘live’ simply because these work better for toddlers! It also means you can watch my classes as many times as you like from the comfort of your own home at a time convenient for you!

The Snow Queen at Home

The Snow Queen at Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre – the movie!!

Available from the SJT website until midnight on Sunday 31 January 2021

A brand new film of the Scarborough theatre’s sell-out Christmas show, The Snow Queen, will be available on the SJT website until midnight on Sunday 31 January 2021. It’s the first time the famous North Yorkshire theatre has ventured into filming its productions.

Tickets cost just £12, and allow access to the movie for a week from the first click of the ‘play’ button.

The show, which was live on stage at the SJT in December, has been adapted by Nick Lane from the original story by Hans Christian Andersen, and is a Snow Queen like you’ve never seen before – a one-woman whirlwind performed by Polly Lister.

Gerda and Kai are best friends – they share everything – sweets, jokes, games and stories… especially ones about the mysterious ‘Lady in the Sky’ who lives in a faraway palace made of ice.

And some of the stories are silly, and some are a bit spooky, but they are only stories. Aren’t they?

When Kai disappears after seeing a strange shape above the clouds, Gerda knows it’s all real. The Snow Queen has got her best mate and only she can rescue him… by travelling to a world of weirdness and wonderment known as the Other Scarborough before he freezes forever.

The team behind the last three years of smash-hit Christmas shows return with a brand-new adventure!

Will it be ridiculous? Will there be brilliant songs? Will you look at hedgehogs in the same way again? Yes, yes and possibly not. In that order.

Age Guidance: 5 years plus
