Art at the Centre

On Monday mornings our stage transforms into an art studio in which our guests can create, express themselves and learn from our in-house art teacher, Michael Crossan. Scroll down to see our gallery!

Michael Crossan: Artist and Teacher

Michael Crossan is a London Artist whose studio is based at the Koppel Project Hive . Michael is a multi-disciplinary Artist who In June 2016 completed his MFA at Wimbledon College of Arts.

Art has been a passion and a mainstay in Michael’s life, a means of self-expression, a way of connecting with the world, and a vehicle of healing, growth, and understanding. When he is able to pass on what he has learned in a way that allows students to connect with their own creative ideas, it is deeply enjoyable and fulfilling

Start your Story Workshop

For six-weeks in 2019, Camilla Marriott and Simonetta Wenkert led the Start Your Story workshop at Refettorio Felix. Our guests created bespoke mini Accordion books in order to tell stories about aspects of their lives in words and pictures. At the end of the project, the books were displayed at the centre in an open house gallery night.
