Welcome to Debbi's Doodles

To be creative means to be in love with life

About Debbi's Doodles

Debbi Doodles is a safe space for students to create, have fun and relax. We specialise in creating individual plans for children with special educational needs but cater for all children who love creating. There is never any pressure to complete a work of art but to experience the process and just to enjoy the experience. Your child may benefit from sessions at Debbi Doodles if they are lacking confidence or self esteem, if they benefit from sensory experiences or if they would like to learn a new skill.



Sometimes it helps if you feel you have already met before. Feel free to ask question via the facebook page (link is in the contact section.) or via email or phone

Oil Painting Workshop


February 4, 2022

We had the best time today at Debbi’s Doddles - a calm stimulating environment enjoying the experience of Art/Clay and lot’s of Sensory stimulation. Archie struggles with confidence, self esteem & doesn’t believe in his own abilities. There was no pressure in the session, Archie just enjoyed the experience. Archie said “this is so satisfying” whilst playing with the clay. The whole atmosphere was so calm & quiet with the sound of running water “listen to the birds Mam, it’s so cool here”. I can’t recommend Debbi highly enough she was so friendly & gave Archie the reassurance he needed whilst creating some fab Clay models. We are so looking forward to our next session.
