" Until the age of 70, nothing I drew was worthy of notice.  At 73 years I was somewhat able to fathom the growth of plants and trees, and the structure of birds, animals, insects and fish."  

Katsushika Hokusai

Welcome to "The Great Wave" Workshop Series—an inspiring artistic voyage inspired by the wisdom of legendary Japanese artist Hokusai. Just as Hokusai's creativity soared at the age of 70, we invite particpants to embark on a unique journey, celebrating the wisdom and joy of life's experiences through the transformative power of art!


In partnership with Age UK and Garrison Chapel, the Kindness Studio presents a series of captivating workshops that cherish the ever-evolving nature of creativity among our seasoned participants. Set mostly in the enchanting Garrison Chapel in Chelsea, each workshop is designed to be an immersive experience, where the ebb and flow of artistic expression defies time and transcends generations.


Drawing inspiration from the richness of life's experiences, "The Great Wave" workshops provide a nurturing space for participants to explore the boundless possibilities of artistic expression. Whether you're an experienced artist or just beginning your creative journey, these workshops embrace every dot and stroke as a testament to the passion and purpose within.  Together, let's honor the wisdom and joy that come with every stage of life, celebrating the beautiful complexities that make us who we are.


At "The Great Wave" workshops, we believe in the power of creativity not only to inspire but also to keep our participants active and happy. Engaging in artistic activities has been shown to promote cognitive health, emotional well-being, and overall happiness among the elderly. Through art, we aim to create an environment that fosters a sense of purpose and fulfilment, which can contribute to enhancing the quality of life.
