  • unlocking imaginations. Changing life stories
  1. 1


I’m Gill Pawley and I set up, and have run Inkpots for the past seven years.

Over that time over 1,000 children, young people and adults have come to our after school clubs, workshops and events.

I have had the privilege of seeing so many creative ideas open up, and followed through into stories, cartoons, photographs, videos and artwork.

I believe passionately in the power of creativity  and how important it is for our self belief, self worth and good mental health.

My role at Inkpots is very much that of unlocking creativity – helping imaginations soar, ideas develop and finding a way to weave creativity into everyday lives.

Building on the very firm foundations of the past few years at Inkpots, I am absolutely delighted to be offering a range of 1:1 packages for young people age 8 – 16 years. This gives me the opportunity to help develop young people’s creativity, harnessing their skills and interests to support their journey through the sometimes choppy waters of growing up.

In the pipeline is a range of resources for young people and parents, particularly around transitioning from primary to secondary school.

I am also available for speaking engagements and run workshops in primary and secondary schools too including CPD sessions.

From my own many years of parenting, I know that after all the noise and pressures from various quarters,  all that really matters is your children’s happiness. I believe the work of Inkpots can contribute to that.

I do hope this approach appeals to you and that there is something of interest. I look forward to talking hearing from you.
