Visit Not Too Shabby by Charlotte

The Old Baptist Church Ilkeston
Our address is The Old Baptist Church, 170 Norman Street, Ilkeston, DE7 8NR 

When you come into the church you'll see that the main Chapel is our working studio. 
You will be able to see the commissions that we are currently painting, so each time you pop in there'll be something different to see. You'll see us using the products and techniques first hand, this isn't just a shop with a paint display in the corner! We know these products inside out! We stock these products because we use them every day and we love them!

The Chapel has an amazing balcony that we're renovating, we're going to be running all sorts of workshops. Watch this space! 

Would you like to hire the balcony to run a craft workshop of your own? 

 Meet My Neighbours 

I love to surround myself with positive, hard working and talented people. Here's the details of two wonderful businesses who rent rooms at the church and I am proud to say are my neighbours and friends. 

Reiki Journeys With Wendy 

This room used to be a mezzanine where the choir sat, now its occupied by Wendt who is a Reike therapist. If paint is good for the soul, a Reiki treatment is definitely good for the body and mind.

The Church Hall

British Powerlifting Federation Logo
The Church Hall used to host all sorts of community events back when the church was open. Now this room is occupied by Petra and Marcus who run their power lifting federation. An unusual fit you might think? Not at all! The important thing to me is to spend my days with people who are passionate about what they do and empowering others. 


We look forward to your visit!
