Hello and welcome.  My name is Tamar and I have been teaching art and design for 15 years!  I founded The City Workshop  Edinburgh as I want to bring the joy of art and craft making to as many people as I can. I never tire of seeing the happiness that creating art brings and I believe that art is for everyone.

So whether you think you're 'not any good at art' or you have always loved making, I hope you'll come and enjoy creating in my little workshop in Edinburgh city centre.

My Mission

I believe that everyone can create art and our classes give you the confidence to make your own individual art and craft pieces. There are so many reasons to learn an artistic skill; whether you want to study traditional techniques or switch off from the pressures of life, we offer the perfect environment to try something new. There is nothing better than creating your own piece of art or craft, whether for your own home or a gift for a loved one, you can proudly say 'I made that”!

What others say.....

"I was surprised how much I enjoyed the session. It was relaxed and I was able to get totally lost in what I was doing. It has never been something I thought I would enjoy so much."

“Lovely atmosphere and  such a relaxing night painting. Tamar gave us plenty of advice about the artwork and we  took our canvases home to hang up and admire”.

”Well organised workshop, relaxed atmosphere..friendly teacher.  Highly recommend this activity. Productive day catching up with friends and rewarded with a beautiful and original piece of jewellery to call my own.”
