‘Curious House is the culmination of a personal ambition to form connections between people and to explore their creativity in a haven of calm and serenity’

Philippa King, Founder


For all of us, the stresses and strains of daily life take their toll. What has helped keep me grounded over the past 20 years running a successful communications business and bringing up a family, is an evolving interest in art. Focusing on something that uses a completely different part of my brain, something I find challenging but also rewarding,
has given my life a better balance. 


At school I had no encouragement to embrace art. I thought it wasn’t for me. It took years to get over that and be brave enough to try out a class here or an art holiday there. 

At Curious House I host day retreats where the guests are considered and cared for whilst exploring a new creative skill. I work with some inspiring tutors who share a gentle approach to their craft and teach in an encouraging and non-judgmental way.

The venue for the courses and workshops is my home, built with my husband and fashioned with love and collaboration from top to bottom, inside and out. 

Join me for a carefree day where I can introduce you to like-minded people and send you home inspired, with a clearer, calmer mind.
