ArtScilly became The Creative Scilly Festival in 2019 and has expanded from its initial seven days to nearly a fortnight., Stephen and Lois are proud to have been among the original supporters of this unique Scillonian Art Festival. From somewhat shaky beginnings in 2010, it has grown to become an important week in the Scillonian calendar. Almost all the artists and craftspeople on the islands participate in 'Creative Scilly', opening their Galleries and offering workshops, guided sessions and special classes to the general public.

Stephen offered an informal and relaxed 'en plein air' sketching morning for 'ArtScilly' in 2010 and again in 2011, In 2012, he offered a 'Quick Watercolour Sketching from Life' workshop and had seven students, almost all of them beginners. They were lucky enough to have fabulous weather for the workshop and spent some time on the beach, painting in warm sunshine under blue skies. Since then, he has done both Watercolour and Ink Sketching Workshops for participants and they have been very successful.
