Creative Resilience Sessions


What is the Henry Hedgepodge Academy of Art?

Henry Hedgepodge Academy of ART is an expressive arts school and studio where the creative and therapeutic process of art making is employed to enhance the psychological and social well-being of individuals of all ages, learning needs and health conditions. 

It is at its heart, an adult and children’s safe space for self-expression through the mediums of visual art, writing, play, music + drama, for healing, transformation, rejuvenation, self-discovery, creative learning and exploration.

As well, classic art + design lessons + workshops are offered for children and adults.

The studio is located on the first floor of The Green Shed, Merlins Bridge, Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire. Sessions and lessons are now virtual due to COVID 19 restrictions.
