I am a lifestyle and party stylist, creative workshop organizer, toddler teacher and founder of Laurant Styling. I am a wife, mother of Josiah and bonus mother of Georgia.

My focus is mainly on art, working with natural elements and interaction with children and adults in a small-scale setting where personal attention is central. I have been a professional within the education system for 14 years, with very intensive experience in working with young children where education takes place through play and creation.


My way of working with children is a positive and powerful way. I want the children to feel safe. Lauratstyling Atelier must be a home where children can feel at home.

"I am a hardworking woman and a mother at the same time. I have a passion for what I do, I do everything with a lot of care and love!"

Our story

Laurantstyling Atelier exists because I am a mother myself and was looking for a place where I can be creative and make new friends. When I first came to live in the Netherlands, I had to get to know the culture, but also meet new people and build new friendships. As an expat you like to interact with other people.

After I became a mother I enjoyed styling for a party, but the combination just didn't work. I didn't see my family that often and I wanted to change that. Since I also have a part-time job as a kindergarten teacher and another styling business, I wanted to see my son develop and spend more time with him.

Then Covid came and it was tough, but here I found myself again and saw what my needs were and those of my son. A place where you feel at home and can be creative and build new friendships. And food and good company always bring out the best in a person. The social contact and the need to spend time together as a family, but also time for yourself. And so Laurant Atelier was born, a meeting place for children and adults.

Let's Connect


The studio organizes workshops and educational creative events, according to the Ayala Manolson method. Ayala Hanen Manolson is a speech therapist and she has developed a program to develop and improve communication skills, with the core foundation being that it is essential that the parent plays an active role and is deeply involved in the child's development. Through creative expression and interaction, we implement these fundamental and essential principles together. Building and connecting with your child by being present, watching and really seeing and observing intently without interaction, giving you time, space and time to be and listen authentically. Hearing what is said and entering into dialogue from there, this method requires patience and therefore makes it a very interesting learning experience for both child and parent. Communicating through art, play and spending uninterrupted time together. Sharing and listening from a place of empathy and understanding and acknowledging what is present.

Important STEPS:

1. WATCH – WATCH – OBSERVE This is the first step to really get to know your child by just doing it, it may sound simple and easy and it is exactly that: simplify and feel the onion and see what is right in front of you happens. No interpretations, throw options of our stories overboard, and remain first what is present and alive in the moment in facts, the things you can perceive.

2. LISTENING For us, this means listening uninterruptedly to what is currently going on in a child, letting the child speak and listening emphatically. Staying closely connected and giving the child the freedom to express themselves in words.
