That’s Creative Podcast!

At PopUp Painting we believe that everybody is innately creative. All people need is the right encouragement, guidance, and opportunity.

With that in mind, in 2020 we launched That’s Creative! A new podcast exploring the lives of some fantastically creative people. In lockdown of 2021, we changed the format to suit our housebound activities and then in 2023, we joined forces with Jess and re vamped the show!

Happy listening!
