About Random Makes

Random Makes is an exciting workshop space based on the busy high street of Penwortham in Preston. Run by Mother Daughter team Janet and Sally, Random Makes offers a number of creative workshops for both adults and children of all ages and abilities.

Janet is a qualified art teacher with 15 years teaching experience and both Sally and Janet are trained artists, passionate about all things creative with a wide range of skills and interests.

“Mums specialism is Ceramic Art and I’m a Portrait Painter, but we think of our selves as generalists with wide spread Art backgrounds, we are passionate about all things creative! We love passing on our skills, knowledge and enthusiasm for making and take great pleasure in seeing our customers develop their skills and go home with something they are proud of.”
