What you'll do

I will meet you close to Colin's studio which is a unique and bohemian space in a railway arch. The local area is full of creative people and has a relaxed vibe.

Colin is a full-time artist and shows and sells his art internationally, this experience is a great insight into the life of an artist and the creative process.

First off we will show you around the studio, Colin will show you various examples of his art and the inspiration behind his work and we can find out about each other too!

Colin will show you various techniques that he uses in his art and give you demonstrations so you can get an idea of what you may want to create. We will guide you throughout and make it fun - warning - you may get some paint on you!

You will be fully immersed in the creative process for over 2 hours and focus on making art, you will find it stimulating and relaxing and hopefully it will take any stresses away and help you re-focus.

We love to find out about our guests so there will be plenty of chatting along the way too.

We will provide some drinks and nibbles in case you get peckish!

You will leave the studio having made your own painting that you can take with you if it's dried in time (if not, we can send it to you afterwards or arrange for you to collect another day)
Other things to note
I will meet you at the agreed location and you will walk to my studio, approximately 20 mins or a bit longer if you stop along the way to see sights and take pics

We will then go to the studio and I will show you around before we start the experience.

Where you'll be

We will show you a private art studio that is hidden and not accessible to the public.

The studio is in a railway arch that has not been converted so retains all the character of the original Victorian building.

The neighbourhood around the studio is very interesting and with a great local atmosphere and includes some great shops and food places as well as the Regents Canal which has some lovely houseboats next to Broadway Market.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 17 reviews.

We had a delightful experience with Tere and Colin at their studio. We got to see their beautiful work, they explained everything well and had great materials, and encouraged us to explore art using unconventional methods. Tere and Colin were both friendly, warm and engaging, and we thoroughly enjoyed both the experience and loved the final result of our art works! Additionally, we really appreciate that because I was half an hour late, Tere and Colin let our experience go on for additional time so we still had a complete experience. Tere also kindly took photos of us during the experience and sent these to us swiftly, so that we have memories of the experience in addition to our art pieces!

Colin and Tere were amazing hosts. We loved getting to know them and seeing Colin’s work process and all his fantastic pieces. It was a really special experience for all of us and for Anna’s birthday. The studio was very cool and eclectic. We really enjoyed creating our own art works and putting our personalities onto canvas. If you want a true east London artist experience this is it! Very covid safe and efficient.

It was a great fun to create art with Tere and Colin. I wanted to work on a canvas and make something for my wall at home and they helped me create a beautiful piece which I have now hung up and already received compliments. Learned some other fun techniques which I will definitely try out on my own . Location was great to explore other artsy bits in London. Thank you both for having me over to attend such a personalised session.
