There's Only Make is a collective of artists offering creative courses for everyone to find their flow.

We help people identify and savour the things that bring them joy. Our courses incorporate the tenets of Flow Theory, using creative tasks to experience a state of absorption, where time simultaneously flies by and stands still.

All children dance, sing and draw. Yet, at some point, many of us stopped doing these things. Perhaps we were once told that we couldn’t draw, or that we didn’t sing in tune. Perhaps we have internalised the belief that it is frivolous to do things only for the sake of enjoyment. However, at There’s Only Make, we believe that everyone should experience the joy of being creative.

Thank you so much Alice! I learnt a lot about scale and positioning, and also had a really good stretch :-) Will definitely join in again, I really enjoyed myself!

This class was amazing! Alice was an excellent teacher, guiding is expertly through the class and even helped a novice like me to draw something half decent. The hour whizzed by, and I would definitely take this class again, thank you Alice!

Really enjoyable and fun class!! This isn't your standard life drawing class; you'll be challenged to perceive and draw the human form in new and different ways. Alice is a brilliant teacher and I'll definitely be booking for another class :)

Do this class, it's great! It's definitely fine for beginners - I'm terrible at drawing - and the combination of yoga poses and drawing works so well, as you aren't thinking too much about how good/bad your drawing is. It all feels relaxing, mindful, and fun, plus it's really good to get your body moving while we're all stuck indoors.

Great class, really nice way to engage with your body while doing something creative. Alice is fantastic, and is teaching a way of life drawing I have never done before but I loved it and would highly recommend it!

Alice's class was brilliant . Mixing art with a bit of much-needed movement meant I felt both mentally and physically limber after the class! She's also an excellent teacher; really encouraging and super adept at making the class feel like a little secure community, where you don't need to feel scared to share your art (even if you're a bit of a rookie like me!). Thanks Alice!

Alice was a great teacher, very friendly and welcoming. The class presented a really novel and enjoyable way to approach life drawing, incorporating both technical drawing skills and the beneficial aspects of feeling your body through you yoga positions. Highly recommended!

Such a wonderful way to forget about lockdown for a while and immerse yourself in drawing and moving your body. Alice has a way of putting everyone at ease regardless of experience or (lack of!) talent - the focus is on the being present in the experience rather than the end results. 100% recommend!

I have done this class a few times and it is always great fun. I'm not much of an artist but I enjoy thinking more creatively and I always feel more calm and inspired at the end.

I have done several life drawing classes, but this one was different. It was really about being in your body and using that feeling as a foundation to draw from. Totally loved it and I'd highly recommend!

Totally brilliant, relaxing and wonderful way to spend my evening. Loved getting into positions and drawing from different angles. Feel more confident each week with Alices help.

Alice is an excellent teacher with a unique approach to life drawing. Using ourselves as models, getting into various poses, we were asked to feel rather than see the pose and express it on paper. She made us aware of the proportions of the body and the weight and angles of the pose.

Loved this class! A brilliant way to keep up your drawing skills during lockdown, Alice got us doing loads of different drawing exercises to think differently about perspective - particularly liked the audience participation and use of yoga poses!

Alice was an incredibly friendly teacher. Her class really lifted my spirits in lockdown times. I’ve done a few life drawing classes over the years but this one was completely unique. combining yoga poses with art was a cool way to think about the figure-I really don’t think I’ve ever studied my toes in that much detail! Will definitely join Alice’s online class again.

I found the session really liberating. I tend to get a bit irritable usually just sitting in life drawing so it was soooo nice to move around. I absolutely loved drawing the position IN the position. It totally changed how I drew. Its like I became the pencil! So cool! I loved the emphasis on feeling your weight and pressure on the floor and being invited to interpret it as abstract or literal. The skeleton proportion exercise at the start really helped too. I remembered the elements as I was working. Very nice to be working on the floor too. Alice is a really reassuring tutor. And it was loads of fun!

This was a lovely relaxing, creative and fun class! Alice was a great teacher, very reassuring and encouraging while I tried to work out how my body works while drawing it. It was great to put my mind to work in a totally different way

I am a complete artistic amature and I really enjoyed the poses and the activities. I've always struggled with drawing and Alice's class changed how I thought about the process, and gave me some interesting new perspectives to experiment with. Great activity to do with friends as anyone from beginners to experienced artists will get a lot out of it.

This class was very enjoyable and a great way to get started with a creative activity in this time, as a way to get away and change perspective.

I really enjoyed this class. Emily was great, I learned loads. I especially liked hearing about the state of your brain when you are "in the zone". The different exercises where really interesting and give you lots of different ways into creative mark making to get you in the zone. Thanks Emily!

Emily is a fantastic teacher. She introduced us to the flow techniques applied into visual arts. She beautifully explained the context and theory of the subject. We also applied these into practical projects and gave us many ideas to develop in the future. I can really recommend the lesson. It was like meditating by doing art.

Excellent teacher; gave everyone space and permission to clear their minds of preconceptions or judgements before making any mark on their paper, taking us through the process of exploring our subconscious step by step through mark-making. A thoughtful and enriching process guided very well. A very meditative class, which made me feel better. I wish it were longer to allow for more group reflection and pause and for diving a bit deeper; I think a longer class would be great.

Hadn't realised how shapely and shady a face is! Really enjoyed getting better acquainted with the contours of my face while sketching and learning some portrait skills. Alice is a really friendly and kind teacher!

The class was excellent! The teacher was lovely and even though my son was the only one attending, she was very patient and gave him feedback on his work. He has very much enjoyed it!
