I’m Tamzin, and I run Art workshops as well as a design and stationery business from my garden studio in the city of Chester. 
I h
ave a degree in Fine Art from the Ruskin, Oxford University and have over 20 years experience teaching as a qualified art teacher and head of department within Cheshire Secondary schools.

My designs are inspired by my experience of growing up in Africa and the Middle East. I am drawn to the unusual, cultural and the historical and I love the oddities, charm and quirks of things not being completely 'perfect'.  My motivation has always been to produce work that I would want for myself - bold, striking and original. I have a love of colour and am definitely more maximalist than minimalist! 

Workshops @Beechlands

I now offer on-site, smaller group workshops for up to 6 people in my studio in Chester. A perfect way to spend an afternoon with friends and offering a relaxed and friendly setting. Please see details of our current classes in the Art Workshops section of the website to book your place! 

I am a confident practitioner in a broad variety of media including paint, print, sculpture, textiles and photography. If you are interested in discussing bespoke workshop ideas whether as fun group activities, small art parties or just for yourself then please get in touch and I'd be happy to chat through your ideas!
