  • Thank you Susan for the 5 day course. I found you after googling Mindful drawing as I had a go of mindful drawing with my students at school and was amazed at the impact. As someone who is not at all comfortable with art, your lessons have been a huge help. Thank you.

About Your Host - Susan

My name is Susan Yeates and I am an artist, author, tutor and creative entrepreneur.

I am passionate about creativity and staying inspired for making art. I love inspiring others to make art and to try new things - which is why I have created this FREE mini-course. 

I have written two books on linocutting including Amazon no. 1 bestsellers, Learning Linocut (2011) and A Beginner’s Guide to Linocut (2019, Search Press.)

In 2018 I launched the annual 30 Day Sketchbook Challenge which begins on 01 January each year. I love getting new people interested in art, sketching and creativity. It is from this annual challenge that I have identified the need for a membership group that helps to Inspire creativity on a regular basis, not just once per year.

As well as creating my own drawings and prints I love educating and sharing my knowledge - I have a number of e-courses tutoring beginners to drawing, sketching and printmaking. These include Sketching for Fun and Mindful Drawing and Doodling for Beginners.

I am also a busy mama, a pottery cafe owner (Fired Frog Pottery Cafe in Woking) and reading addict.

In December 2019 I delivered a TedX talk at the WWF Living Planet Centre here in Woking entitled “Create Your Mandala Universe - Collaborate for a Beautiful Life.” This talk is all about collaboration and connection for mums in business and also includes some of my mandala drawings. See the video on the TedX YouTube channel here:

You need a few basic art materials such as a sketchbook or paper. Pencils, pens and some paint. But please don’t let materials be a barrier to getting started - you can use what you have available!
