This was great! Georgie is lovely and welcoming and the atmosphere is very relaxed, encouraging and non-intimidating. Learned some interesting new techniques to create texture and enjoyed the creative release. The setting and the cafe are also lovely!

Your Teacher

Georgie Mason is an intuitive abstract painter working in an assortment of media. She values the art making process for its therapeutic benefits and as a process of self-exploration just as much as she values the final product. 

Georgie teaches weekly workshops from her studio at Stepney City Farm in London: a wholesome and creative environment, physically close but atmospherically very far from the hustle and bustle of the city, with glass double doors looking out onto the farm, animals all around, and neighboured by a spoon-carver and a ceramicist.  

Georgie’s workshops are very process-led, with…

My husband and I really enjoyed our experience at Georgie’s studio. She creates a lovely relaxed atmosphere and gave us some great techniques to work with. It was a really fun day out. Thanks Georgie!
Annabelle - Jun 12, 2022
Such a lovely day being creative in nature with Georgie as a lovely host!
Percy Fagent - Jun 12, 2022
Georgie is wonderful and creates a beautiful, safe space - I'm not much of an artist and was anxious about feeling crap or needing to create something 'good', but the environment was one that really encouraged exploration, and one in which you felt capable to go on your own journey regardless of skill or experience. I learned lots of new techniques which I have taken forward into my private practices, felt generally inspired, and am very happy with what I created! I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is trying to get into painting, refine their skills or learn some new techniques, or anyone who just wants to escape for a few hours and paint without feeling judged. A lovely experience and something I will probably do again :)
Teresa Boyle - Jun 6, 2022
Georgie leads a great session in a great location.
Jenny - Jun 5, 2022
I booked this workshop as a gift for my mum, and she said: "It was great fun! I thoroughly enjoyed it start to finish." Georgie had lots of materials to play around with, and encouraged all of us to get creative. It's perfect for people who haven't done any art since school, or who paint regularly and want to try something different.
Sam Valentine - May 24, 2022
Georgie had a fascinating perspective on art and the natural world. She was kind, open and encouraging of us which really helped be at ease with the process rather than judging the outcome! Loved it - thank you.
aileen madden - May 15, 2022
We had such a fun day at Georgie's studio in Stepney Farm. The location is a little hidden gem in east London - and Georgie is one too! She's encouraging and fun and, as two non-painters, we came away feeling very inspired and relaxed. Thank you, Georgie!
Marian Teodora - May 11, 2022
I really enjoyed her painting class and the approach. I have to remember to let myself play more. She uses varied materials and seemed keen on sustainability. A lovely raining Saturday spent more into now than in my head. I would definitely go another time :)
Giorgia - May 10, 2022
A great session where you can learn new techniques, get inspired and free up your creativity. The studio has a lot of materials you can use for your piece of art, and Georgie is super friendly, supportive and always happy to help.
Yolanda Wells - Apr 25, 2022
I had such an enjoyable day. I didn't know anyone but it felt welcoming and relaxing right from the get-go. Loved the creativity exercises and came away feeling proud of what I had achieved. Bangladeshi pop up lunch was an added surprise. Thanks to Georgie for such a great great class.
Bronagh Crowley - Apr 21, 2022
Loved it! Georgie creates a really welcoming creative environment, very pleased with my new artwork. The studio is only a few steps from the farm and the cafe has great coffee and food so overall a really nice vibe.
Giorgia - Apr 14, 2022
The class was such a great experience! Georgie showed us fun painting techniques and it was an absolutely amazing way of freeing up and getting inspired by our own creativity. Highly recommend :)

Jackie Plant - Apr 14, 2022
We had a lovely time learning abstract painting techniques with Georgie. She is incredibly accomplished in her field, and very encouraging to her students. It was great fun and we will def be doing more!
Rebecca Moore - Apr 13, 2022
I had the most beautiful evening, painting with Georgie and other attendees at the farm. It was great to have an inner-city escape and immerse myself in nature and art. Georgie showed us how to use different techniques and encouraged us to paint freely without thinking too much. I will definitely be back!
Nike Ojo - Apr 6, 2022
Really lovely and productive creative session with Georgie. She made us all feel welcome. Took us through relevant basics of painting, leaving us enough time to have a go. She encouraged conversation so we got to know one another and became a cohesive group. The venue was lovely too, calming, peaceful.
Zoran Ivanovski - Apr 3, 2022
Excellent experience and highly recommended to anyone! The day was perfectly organised, relaxing atmosphere, Georgie was perfect host. My masterpiece was not as VanGogh but I have enjoyed the attempt!
Paula - Apr 3, 2022
I’ve always thought I wasn’t artsy or creative enough to make something good enough. Couldn’t imagine when I walked in Georgie’s beautiful studio that will be one of the best experiences that I ever had. Today I rediscovered a fun and mindful approach to art. A safe space to express yourself, paint your feelings and reconnect with your inner child: finger-painting, mud, dry leaves and coffee included ;) Thank you Georgie for being such a great teacher and making art accessible to everyone. Also because I have an unexpected foresty painting of my own hanging in the living room now

Estella - Apr 2, 2022
This was a relaxed, friendly class in a gorgeous setting. As well as painting our own canvas (with the freedom to depict whatever you liked on the theme of ‘hope’), this varied session blended together mindfulness and a few sketching ‘warm up’ tasks around the farm. Georgie demonstrates some mixed media / texture techniques but really encourages you to express ourselves with no ‘right or wrong’, which makes the class feel accessible even to total beginners. Chatting with the other students in the friendly group of six was also a highlight. What a therapeutic and and inspiring way to spend a Saturday!

Fantastic fun experience learning the little ways to add texture to paintings. Georgie is super friendly and encourages mindfulness and good conversation to help the art flow onto the canvas. A fun activity for all. I will definitely be painting more
Kirsty Mitchell - Mar 17, 2022
This is my 2nd time at this class, Georgie is absolutely amazing and inspiring, it is such great fun and certainly helps getting your creativity on, if like me you work in the corporate world it is sometimes hard to switch off and get creative. Highly recommend!
Sonja Chamberlain - Mar 14, 2022
This was a wonderfully relaxing and fun experience. Set in a lovely little tranquil haven away from the busy urban surroundings. It was really great to learn some techniques in acrylic painting and how to incorporate a variety of materials to create some really interesting textures. Georgie is really great at making you feel at ease and very helpful with suggestions if you need some guidance. I would highly recommend this class, regardless of your level of ability in painting.
Denise Greenwood - Mar 13, 2022
Fabulous class and a lot of fun, very relaxing and Georgie was very helpful and informative as I’m a beginner painter
Denise Greenwood - Mar 12, 2022
Learn how to use acrylic paints and use other textiles to make landscapes. Great fun and very friendly atmosphere Highly recommend
Melissa - Mar 11, 2022
I attended Georgie farm and paint class with a friend, the theme was 'rest' and I certainly felt a sense of calm by the end of the class - Georgie was great, very helpful and inspiring we were all amazed by what we created in the class, everyone's work was so different and unique. Was a wonderful way to spend the evening.
Jenny Edwards - Feb 7, 2022
Georgie was a lovely artist to meet - so interesting to learn about her techniques and approaches. The materials were plentiful and the space/surrounding was very relaxing and enjoyable. I was really pleased with my output and very much valued Georgie's advice along the way. Looking forward to booking in again soon. I highly recommend this for anyone looking to learn some painting techniques, broaden their painting style or just have a lovely time out doing something super creative.
Abby Davies - Feb 6, 2022
We had such a wonderful time with Georgie. The studio was fabulous and the class was such fun. We all learnt new skills and thoroughly enjoyed our painting session. I can't recommend this class enough. It was the perfect gift! Thanks again Best, Abby, Liam & Melvin
Bali Lee - Jan 24, 2022
We had a great time at Georgie's studio! The class was well run, with a couple of warm-up games at the start to get the creative juices flowing. Georgie was really helpful and personable, would recommend a visit.
Woody - Jan 23, 2022
Booked this for my wife and I as a Christmas present. We both absolutely loved it - would highly recommend. Georgie was excellent and got us all in the right frame of mind to be extra creative and seek inspiration from everything around us! Learnt a few new tricks as well. And has inspired me to try and do more art as it was great fun, very therapeutic and a little different (and also realised I need to practice ... a lot!) She does children’s courses too so we’ll be bringing the boys along at some point too!! Thanks Georgie.
Louise - Jan 23, 2022
Loved this class! Georgie was a fantastic tutor - I learned a lot from her, she was really encouraging and supportive and it was a lot of fun. Great venue too.
Shelley Neighbour - Jan 22, 2022
Georgie’s art class was fantastic. It was a surprise gift for my partner and I for his birthday and he loved it. We really liked the mindful introduction to the class and Georgie was an excellent teacher. Would highly recommend it to anyone interested in exploring a more abstract style of painting. Excellent all round!

I thoroughly recommend spending a few hours with Georgie and her beautiful creations in her studio @ Stepney Farm. My father and I had a wonderful time learning new techniques, improvising with colour and texture and simply having fun. Georgie is a fantastic artist, teacher and host and we will definitely do it again x
Pete Keel - Dec 2, 2021
Im primarily a photographer who’s recently taken to drawing. My three children decided I needed to broaden my horizons and sample painting and so they gifted a session with Georgie at her studio at Stepney City Farm. Georgie exudes kindness and mindfulness, and is warm and welcoming. She’s at one with nature and a wonderfully talented artist, and she combines both to create wondrous works. Her studio is full of inspiring works, materials and books and it’s impossible not to be positively encouraged by both her and her studio. I’ve come away from the class full of enthusiasm and an eagerness to develop my painting skills further and I’d firmly recommend a session with Georgie if like me, you need that gentle nudge to push out a personal boundary. I’d imagine that seasoned artists would also be inspired by Georgie’s approach to her art and use of different materials including many from the farm itself. The farm is a wonderful oasis in London and a brilliant place to visit especially with your loving children!

Excellent, relaxing experience. Learnt lots of new techniques that I will pass onto my on students in the classroom. Brilliant day out! Thank you.
Helen Knights - Nov 13, 2021
Really enjoyed out Abstract art experience with Georgie. As this was my first time, didn’t know what to expect. Just having a go and trying the different techniques shown by Georgie, I had the most fun time and came away with an unexpected amazing piece of art.
Maria fuller - Oct 30, 2021
A very enjoyable experience and great fun. You don't need any experience of painting, the group is small and Georgie is on hand to help and offer advice. You can go along with your own ideas or be inspired by Georgie's demos and work. It's a great way to spend a few hours, I would highly recommend it.
Ieva Rituma - Oct 28, 2021
A fantastic way to spend the day and get your creative juices flowing. Georgie gets you in the mood, shows you lots of different techniques and ideas and then helps you to create your own art. There are lots of materials available and it’s all next to a lovely farm. Suggest
Ben F - Oct 9, 2021
Really fun class and Georgie is very friendly and encouraging! Definitely worth doing however competent an artist you feel. Very pleased with the painting and it is a lovely memory.
Laura Roberts - Oct 9, 2021
I really enjoyed the workshop on abstract art. I didn’t feel confident at all at the start, but Georgie really helped us all to feel that we were all capable of painting. She showed us various techniques and let us use different materials and tools to let our creativity run wild! She was on hand for advice when needed and she kept us going with lots of tea! It was a really positive experience and being on the farm with delicious food for lunch was an added bonus! Thanks Georgie and hope to see you again for another class!
Lizette - Oct 4, 2021
It was a great experience, that I would happily repeat again!

Such a fantastic birthday present! I had a wonderful time learning and painting in the studio - and the farm setting is lovely. Georgie made us all feel so welcome - feeling very inspired now!
Sara Hall - Sep 19, 2021
Brilliant session relaxing and painting. The setting is wonderful and lovely food from farmers market or cafe available. I enjoyed the pre painting meditation and ideas and advice that Georgie could offer. Left feeling rejuvenated and inspired with my own artwork to take home too! Thank you
Ruth Hind - Aug 22, 2021
Georgie was just fab! Not only learnt about different painting techniques but also took an holistic approach to the whole class, helping us to get ina calm and mindful space

Michele - Aug 21, 2021
This was given to me as a present and I was a little nervous as I never thought of myself as creative. However, to my surprise, I really enjoyed the session, was unexpectedly pleased with my creation and intend to carry on painting. I recommend this very rewarding experience. Georgie is a great teacher.
Marilia Biasi - Aug 10, 2021
I loved to learn Georgie’s technics to paint with texture! She is an excellent teacher and her studio at the farm couldn’t be more lovely. We covered lots of techniques and there was always a vast range of materials provided for us to use and express our creativity with. After each class I couldn’t wait for the next one.

Class was extremely fun! Lots of good chat and painting. Georgie explained different textures and allowed us to explore whatever we wanted to do, while helping us whenever we didn't know how to proceed. Hadn't had such a fun experience in a very long time. I definitely recommend it!
Robbie Davies - Jun 27, 2021
Very enjoyable, felt great to use my creative side. Georgie was very friendly and get great directions to help produce our artwork
William Newton - Jun 12, 2021
Great Class; Great Location; Great Teacher! Couldn't recommend more, either as a present to someone else or for yourself.
Maj Abrahamsson - Jun 7, 2021
An inspiring mindful day spent in Georgie’s studio. She has an intuitive and playful approach, and after a quick meditation and poetry reading we got the paints out and went for it! Everyone was encouraged to explore in their own way, as well as Georgie showing techniques and materials. Really great if you’re having a creative block, or if you want to free up or if you just want the childish joy of creating without fear! I booked some more sessions with Georgie, best self-care I’ve experienced so far!
OLIVER GILBERTHORPE - Jun 4, 2021
I had the best time last weekend! Spending 3 hours with like-minded people in a beautiful setting was an absolute joy. Georgie is a wonderful teacher and has an infectious energy that transpires through the class. Perfect weekend activity + you take away something to be proud of!
Ruth Thompson - May 26, 2021
loved everything about Georgie’s class! Loved spending the morning absorbed in paint and texture and escaping my head for a few hours! Georgie was super friendly and approachable and encouraged us all to explore and let loose! The farm and Sunday market was an extra treat on our doorstep!
Georgie M - May 24, 2021
I had such a lovely day with Georgie painting in her studio - she was very helpful and supportive of everyone in the class allowing everyone to do what they were inspired to do but alongside her expert direction. It was also great to learn some new techniques from her that I will take forward and use again. Overall, a really lovely experience that I would thoroughly recommend!
Emma McNally - May 23, 2021

Louise Nicola - May 11, 2021
Georgie's painting class is a must. Georgie created a really relaxed and welcoming environment. She has a really authentic teaching style, and gets as involved as you want her to, or leaves you to experimen. There were some nice little poetry reading interludes too! It was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday, in the perfect setting. Thank you Georgie! xx
Archie Browning - May 10, 2021
This is one of the best days out I have had in London and would recommend to anyone of all ages and experiences with painting. You can turn up with an idea in your head of what you want to paint or you can just go with the flow when you arrive and “intuitively paint” which is what the class is all about. Georgie is a great teacher and will guide you as much as you want. She has an infectious energy and you will laugh a lot! Will be returning - also the food at the farm is exceptional so don’t bring lunch with you!
Edita - Apr 27, 2021
My first time painting on canvas and it was a great experience thanks to Georgie - I really enjoyed her relaxed and comforting way of guiding the class. Also the venue could have not been more perfect! I am now considering taking art classes as a way to relax from my day to day technical job ;)
Izzy - Dec 10, 2020
Georgie was the perfect teacher - kind supportive and full of helpful advice and tips. We had the most amazing day out - it was such a nice way to spend the day. So happy with our paintings - despite not being artists at all! Thank you Georgie xxx
Emily - Nov 1, 2020
Such a wonderful way to spend three hours! Georgie is an encouraging teacher who offered great guidance throughout while letting me develop my idea. Would recommend - both for beginners (like me!) and those with more experience. And the location at the City Farm is sweet - do make time to go to the Allotment Kitchen!
Kate - Oct 14, 2020
Had a great class, lots of tips and it's in a fab location to grab some lunch afterwards.
Rosanna Royds - Sep 20, 2020
My Saturday spent painting at Georgie’s studio couldn’t have been a more happy and enjoyable experience. It was such a calming release during a very crazy time! Georgie has a informative yet very relaxed approach to teaching. she was very good at helping you find your feet, and then giving you confidence to carry on solo. I honestly wished I could have stayed there and painting all weekend.
Lindsay - Sep 20, 2020
Could not recommend Georgie’s class more, a really wonderful way to spend a Saturday morning in an inspiring environment. Georgie caters to all levels and helps you develop a vision whatever it may be.

I really enjoyed the class with Georgie. She was very friendly and even though I had not done anything artsy since school, the class went much better than I expected. I would recommend the class and I will be back!
Meghna - Aug 8, 2020
Amazing experience! Georgie is an amazing person and an incredible artist. I love her style of work and so I enjoyed my first experience trying to recreate my abstract imagination. Georgie is kind and guided me through out the process and also allowed me to explore and nurture my own creative instincts as well. The fresh farmer’s market on Saturday’s and the Farm cafe are a bonus! Looking forward to attending the next one!
Teddy - Jul 18, 2020
Absolutely loved my first time painting at Stepney Farm with Georgie. Art is something that I’ve given a second try, after being heavily encouraged at school to do “anything else”. Georgie is a wonderful teacher, who allows you to form your own ideas and then gently nurdles you toward it. The whole 3 hour class was a relaxed and sociable experience, brilliant for all; suitable for fully fledged artists, or for those like myself, happy that I’ve managed to hold the paintbrush with the right end on the canvas.

Georgie was so encouraging and a great teacher. I was able paint an image that I was proud of. Learnt alot in the class using different paints/medium. The class is on a farm and was super relaxing.
Patrizia Chiarappa - Jul 14, 2020
Georgie was really nice and friendly, the environment and the studio was great and I would totally recommend the class. I learned new techniques thanks to her and she would help me with different ideas to approach my painting and suggestions on how to accomplish what I had in mind. Overall a great experience and I can’t wait to do it again!

PLT - Mar 3, 2020
I have had the pleasure of attending Georgie’s farm studio twice. Loved the experience both times and would highly recommend the experience. It feels like you are far away from the City of London and there’s a quaint farmers market on Saturdays as well!
Thomas Wilson - Jan 22, 2020
The venue is really lovely in the Stepney City Farm. The studio is very bright and filled with art and there is a farmer's market every Saturday. The farm also has a terrific on-site cafe with a very healthy menu and great food. Georgie is just super and an accomplished artist who clearly loves the artistic process and inspires the students to try new things. I had some fine art training many years ago so I wanted a studio where I could go and get some inspiration and guidance in picking up painting again. Georgie has been really helpful in getting me started again and I've gone multiple times to work on different pieces. I've had a chance to see her work with different groups of students on Saturdays and everyone has a great time with the painting and meeting new folks. I have nothing but good things to about the class and Georgie's instruction.
Rebecca - Jan 22, 2020
I had a great time at Georgies workshop. Super chillled morning and a lot of help from her in creating my artwork. Defo would attend again.
Elin F - Jan 22, 2020
Been painting with Georgie twice now! And couldn’t recommend her class more highly! Each time was a unique and wonderful, meditative experience. She is super personable, highly engaging and strikes the right balance between guiding you to achieve your desired outcome and giving your creative licence to develop your own style. The class is set in a welcoming setting in Stepney Farm with plentiful Saturday local food options as well.

Georgia was very welcoming friendly and encouraging. She made encouraged us to try different techniques and was very helpful with suggestions on what to do and how to do it

Georgie is amazing! I spent the most amazing Saturday in a very nice atmosphere with lovely people. I absolutely recommend it to anyone who wants to relax and enjoy a great time painting!

Georgie’s class was amazing! We had such a lovely morning in her studio, with Georgie on hand to help and support as much as we wanted. Such a great way to use your creative brain - I really recommend the class to anyone.

Great class, lot of fun and very relaxed. Not done any kind of art since school, over 15yrs ago, but loved every second of it. Georgie is so nice and the studio being on a city farm is the cherry on top.

No better place to spend a sunny afternoon, than on a city farm with the incredible Georgie. Surrounded by her professional art work, you immediately get stuck in to whatever creation you were interested in making, with her patient help and support

A very instructive session helped me with a project I have not previously undertaken. This was to create a promotional art deco style Welsh Corgi poster by tracing from original jpeg images. Georgie suggested methods that I had not thought of by using marker pens. Now that I've got the hang of it, I'm getting new ideas all the time!! So, thank you Georgie for your Director Skills!

Georgie was very professional and encouraging. We were able to try a lot of different textures and techniques which I think were really fun. I was a bit shy about painting in the first place (I was offered this class by my partner) but I was glad to experience other techniques and had tons of fun in this class. It is very relaxed and the farm around the studio and Georgie's kindness makes it a charming and lovely experience. I recommend for any person who wishes to try or come back to painting.

I had such a wonderful time. Georgie was really encouraging and got me out of my comfort zone. It was great to try new ways of painting the things I love! The session was held in Georgie's studio and it was very inspiring to be surrounded by her works. Thanks Georgie!!

Lovely afternoon painting with Georgie - it was a fun & relaxed session, Georgie strikes a great balance between help & advice and allowing you freedom to do your own thing. The tea was free flowing, the donkeys were heehawing in the background on the farm outside, and I think we all left with paintings we liked and thoroughly enjoyed making. The perfect Saturday escape from the city grind! Thanks Georgie :) x

Having not even picked up a paintbrush since school Georgie was really patient, incredibly helpful and clearly knows her stuff. The class was genuinely great fun, very relaxed and there was even time for a tour of the farm. Would highly recommend and will be back!

Great activity for a Saturday, I really enjoyed myself! Georgie is super helpful with showing you different painting techniques while letting you do your thing and be creative. Lots of different colours and canvasses to choose from. The venue (Stepney City Farm) is also really nice and has lots of animals, plants and a farmer's market.

I loved my painting session with Georgie. She is warm, friendly, helpful and inspiring. We had a good chat about ideas for my painting and she gave me lots of ideas that aided my own creativity (I may have never thought to add texture with polyfilla otherwise!). The studio itself is in a lovely setting overlooking the farm with pigs, goats and hens. There is a farmers market too with lots of tasty offerings. Definitely an experience to be repeated, very calming and hugely enjoyable!

It was a great start to the weekend! Georgie is amazing! I am looking forward to doing it again

I really enjoyed Georgie's class, she is a great teacher and her studio is the perfect place to paint. Surrounded by lots of her beautiful paintings her studio in Stepney City Farm is a great venue to get inspired. I love Georgie's abstract style and her use of texture, so it was a great opportunity to learn her techniques. I will definitely be signing up for another class!

I have attended two of Georgie's Saturday classes. I'm new to painting and it was the perfect introductory class for me. The studio is easy to find in in a city farm with a lovely food market just outside the door. Georgie is friendly, interesting and easy to talk to. I enjoyed the conversation as much as the art! The atmosphere is relaxed. She lets you do your own thing and encourages you to find your own style but she is also very happy to share her own expertise and knowledge if you have any questions, need some inspiration or are feeling a bit stuck with a piece! I'll definitely be back.

I recently had my first class with Georgie and thought it was fantastic. She is a great teacher and really encouraged me to be confident with my painting. I would highly recommmend her class and plan to go again!
Selina - Nov 20, 2018
Georgie’s class was small and intimate! I went on a Saturday and it’s maximum of two students. She is an inspiring artist and great teacher. Really great conversation and unlocking my artistic side. Would highly recommend!

I have just collected the painting I had framed after my fantastic sessions at 'Georgie's Saturdays'. I hadn't painted for years and this offered me the perfect solution to get back into it! Georgie is so inspiring, kind and patient and her enthusiasm is infectious. She gave me the confidence to just have a go and it's perfect being able to just turn up to a space set up for painting as it's hard to put space aside for that at home. Can't recommend it highly enough - a real therapy.
