Sinead McDermott, a qualified teacher with 18 years’ experience, decided she wanted to share her passion and enthusiasm for Art and Design for all ages and abilities.


Her concept is that through participating in art workshops, the individual gets the opportunity to relax, unwind and enter the “art zone” which is similar to a meditation.  Modern society constantly bombards us with digital technology and gadgets and sometimes it is beneficial for us to get creative with our hands and minds.


So “The Art and Design Factory” was born with workshops for both children and adults alike, with summer art camps and adult “drink and paint” classes.

The Art and Design Factory offers a wide variety of Art and Design classes and workshops.  Birthday parties have proved very popular and have been hosted birthday parties in the children’s home as well as other venues such as The Ulster Museum, Church Halls and Sports Clubs.
The child can choose the theme in advance such as movie characters, video game characters to their favourite animals.  Where possible we aim to always ensure each child draws and paints something of their choosing. The Art and Design Factory has a “no mess, no stress” policy for home parties. All surfaces are protected and children only use water based paints.
Each child produces a finished piece of artwork which is framed at the party and is taken home as an alternative to party bags.
Bespoke adult parties are also offered.  We can set up in the comfort of your home and offer a bespoke Art class for your family or group of friends.
This is a relaxing, uplifting experience which builds on self-belief and boosts confidence.
Wine usually helps to unleash creativity and get the ideas flowing.
