This has been an incredible experience at Georgie's studio, an abstract art-class instructed by Georgie! She was very knowledgeable, very talented, super friendly and the environment was very calm at the farm. Would definitely do it again and highly recommend to family and friends!! :)
Stephen Pratt - 26 May 2024
Excellent, Georgie quickly put us at ease and I emerged feeling much for confident to practise more and prevaricate less 🙂
Hannah Lim - 30 April 2024
Had the most fun during Georgie’s art class! It was the first time since very long that I was painting again. The start of the class was also very special. I don’t want to spoil anything but it was just a great way to be aware of your senses, what you feel and how to tie that to your creativity! I would definitely recommend to join one of Georgie’s art classes - it’s for everyone! Had the best day, thanks Georgie!

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…

Ellie - 28 April 2024
I had a wonderful time at Georgie's studio. She has an amazing way of putting even totally inexperienced and very nervous people at ease. The atmosphere was fantastic & the setting was lovely. I felt a huge amount of freedom to do whatever I felt like doing, but with support, encouragement and advice. I loved experimenting with different textures. It was a perfect day.
Jules Stirling - 24 April 2024
I learned how to draw and paint without being inhibited by worrying about the result!. The venue was really lovely and Georgie was really clear, relaxed and friendly
Siham - 14 April 2024
The class was absolutely brilliant. The exercises to get us going were really useful and the teacher was excellent, she kept it simple and fun. The venue was beautiful. I went with my husband and a friend and we are all amazed and delighted by the art work we produced! We were thinking about it for days afterwards.
Tom - 9 April 2024
Georgie's workshop was truly fantastic! It was gifted to me by friends after I'd recently started painting and at a time where I felt a bit stuck creatively. After spending a few hours with her at the farm studio I now feel totally inspired! Her knowledge of using textures was great and has really opened my mind creatively. She's also super friendly and welcoming too. Would totally recommend!
undefined - 24 March 2024
The workshop was beyond my expectations. I loved the theory part on activating physically your creative side. The group were fairly small which allows to get extra attention from the tutor
Caroline Blenclowe - 26 February 2024
From start to finish, we had the best day. The studio was based in a great location and found parking easy. We started the day by walking around the farm, where Georgie demonstrated drawing exercises for us to try, which I found so useful. Back at the studio, we learnt new techniques under her guidance. It was fun and exciting getting creative, surrounded by such lovely people. Both my son and I loved every minute and we would definitely recommend to others.
Sarah Moss - 5 February 2024
We had the best time with Georgie. As a ‘non artist’ I was a little apprehensive about the abstract painting experience, but I loved it! Georgie is so friendly and approachable and she showed us various techniques and styles and happily answered our (numerous!) questions. She is encouraging, patient and easily put us all at ease so we could paint with confidence. The exercises we did prior to painting were a lot of fun and really thought provoking - they definitely encouraged more creative thinking! The studio is in a really unique farm setting and the food from the café was delicious too! It was a really great day that I would highly recommend everyone to try! Thanks Georgie and good luck with your show xxx
N & S - 28 January 2024
We spent a wonderful few hours with Georgie at her studio at Stepney City Farm. As first time artists we had a great experience. Georgie encouraged us, inspired us and allowed us to experiment and explore our artistic style. It was such a lovely time and we would thoroughly recommend joining her. Thank you Georgie, I am not sure we will be as successful an artist as you but we loved it.
Jenni Page - 22 January 2024
Loved our art-class with Georgie. She is a warm, friendly and inspiring teacher the atmosphere was really relaxed and fun. We took up the option of lunch at the nearby Ethiopian cafe and it was really delicious (high recommend). It was a treat to return to a studio environment & create just for fun. I'll definitely return for future classes.
Rebecca - 22 December 2023
Such a great class with Georgie! She was super friendly & welcoming and created such a lovely environment for us all to explore in. I have no experience of painting but she gave lots of guidance, showed us different techniques and led us through lots of different exercises to help us explore more of our creativity! Would definitely recommend & will come back, thanks Georgie :)

Danny Ratnaike - 10 November 2023
Petula Boddy - 23 October 2023
Great time had! Mon was our tutor and friendly, welcoming, fun and knowledgable. Started with some mindful activities after introducing ourselves to each other then looked at different ways to texture the paint. All this helped us to relax and then we started painting. Time flew by then Mon asked us all to look at each other’s canvas and add a few marks. More time to chat with fellow painters. There was no stress or anxiety just do what makes you feel good and enjoy yourself! And if you need assistance just ask. A very enjoyable, stress less, friendly and artistic day.
Chiara - 18 September 2023
I went to the class with two friends as a birthday present and we all absolutely loved it! Georgie is an amazing teacher, she taught us loads of fun techniques and was incredibly helpful and very welcoming. Even though I never painted before I had an amazing experience and came away with a painting I am very happy with. The venue is very cute and the animals are adorable, which added to the experience. We all came away more relaxed and very happy, would 100% recommend.
Amanda Reader - 17 September 2023
Excellent day with Georgie and fellow creators. Really nice to have a new perspective and remember the important things in life. Thank you!!
Jill P - 14 September 2023
A brilliant night to reinvigorate your creativity in a welcoming, non judgemental environment. It was lovely! I would go again :)
Mel - 14 September 2023
I can't rate it enough. It's a perfect class for those who have never picked up a paintbrush, and plenty of things to make huge messes and beautiful art with. Lovely peaceful setting and Mona, who taught the class was friendly, warm and encouraging. Just go and exercise that right brain!!
Chloe Young - 2 September 2023
I LOVED this short abstract painting course! Georgie was so friendly and encouraging, and the setting of her studio was brilliant - especially as we had a sunny day and therefore had benches set up outside. All in all a lovely wholesome day, highly recommend.
Billy Leach - 31 July 2023
Had a fabulous day - am not an artist but am inspired to do more. Georgie was very helpful and encouraging. The location / setting was lovely and it was all very relaxed and fun. Great for a mother and daughter day with lots of laughter..
Richard Jones - 30 July 2023
The class was very friendly and rewarding. I enjoyed the time and Georgie was very welcoming. The other students were also friendly and a good was had by all.
Federica - 13 July 2023
I had an amazing time at Georgie Mason studio’s painting class. As someone with little artistic experience, I was a bit nervous at first, but Mon and the overall atmosphere quickly made me feel comfortable. Mon was truly fantastic, with a contagious passion for art and a talent for explaining techniques in simple ways. I strongly recommend it to both beginners and experienced artists.
Marie - 9 July 2023
The venue was ideal and I particularly enjoyed the pre painting exercises, they were great.
Shetal - 25 June 2023
Really enjoyed the class! It was kind of therapeutic in a way… loved the exercises to test our perceptions and our skills, setting of working and walking around a farm was amazing! Learning about textures and multiple ways of creating textures was very helpful. And it kind of pushes your limits where you can go with your flow instead of doing a structured piece of work.
Annie Wang - 18 June 2023
I had a great session with Georgie. I felt the class was really nicely designed and it was really relaxing throughout. We were taught quite a few techniques and were given the freedom to explore on our own at the same time.
frances Sutherland - 18 June 2023
Absolutely a brilliant experience, having not being near a paintbrush for years it was truly encouraging experience and lovely to chat to those in the group
Lizzie - 12 June 2023
I didn't really know what to expect from the class, and was a bit nervous about painting and getting creative from a standing start. Georgie did a really great job of making us all feel comfortable and removing creative blocks with a great variety of warm up activities. The venue was perfect for connecting to nature and feeling free from work and life worries. It was a really inspiring session.
Andrea Ansdorter - 12 June 2023
Great location at City Farm. Some very good exercises for helping with the creative process. Small friendly class. Georgie is personable and encouraging.
Pritpar Shinmar - 26 May 2023
Georgie has good structure to the session mixing, mindfulness and creativity to inspire confidence for the active section. Good communication skills that help in the use of colour palette as well as materials to create texture, style and effect. Overall a good session . Thank you Georgie.
Nicole Jansen - 26 May 2023
Georgie’s abstract art class at Stepney city farm was a thoughtful birthday gift from my son. Georgie is an amazing artist, a great teacher and a very lovely person. Many of us were total beginners and she put us all at ease right from the start. The class was such fun, so inspiring and experimental and we all went home with a painting! I’m already dropping huge hints for my next birthday ! Thank you Georgie. Loved it.
Ben Naughton-Rumbo - 19 May 2023
My teams feedback of Georgie's class was amazing - they loved it! "best team exercise we've ever done". So Georgie's amazing class made me pretty popular - so everyone's happy all round! Couldn't recommend more!!
Natasha Stone - 14 May 2023
Great session. Georgie was very friendly, the farm is very inviting, got the group interacting and into a creative flow, was very knowledgeable about technique and allowed me to create a painting, something I haven't done since childhood!
Nirmala Chakkalakal - 6 May 2023
I had a wonderful time doing the Abstract art worship with Georgie! She’s an inspiring teacher and the experience was liberating! Thank you 🤓
Kate Millar - 16 April 2023
Georgie was great, this was a really fun and creative way to spend a day!
Rohan - 2 April 2023
Georgies class is amazing. I would highly recommend it to anyone whether you think you are creative or not. Georgie creates a fun space where you can relax and have enjoy painting with zero pressure or expectation. Having not painted since school and being told I was terrible at it. This class allowed me to explore my artistic side and just enjoy myself whilst being taught some useful technicques! . Cannot recommend it enough

Simon Johnston - 2 April 2023
Georgie is the most inspirational and patient of any tutor for which I have been a student. Clearly the encouragement and clarity of direction make the experience a truly lasting pleasure. I will invest further time in these endeavours to stretch my skillset and I recommend these experiences to everyone who is open to positive artistic change. S
Melanie Hatfield - 20 March 2023
A very enjoyable 3 hours learning how to express oneself through abstract art. Plenty of tips and guidance in a very welcoming and friendly studio.
Sandra Mendonca - 13 March 2023
Excellent!
Sandra Mendonca - 12 March 2023
Everything so perfect from the start to finish. Georgie made us feel so confortable and confident.
Melanie - 12 March 2023
The whole day was very enjoyable. The venue is bright and warm and well equipped. The class of about 12 people gave plenty of opportunity to ask questions and receive personal attention. Georgie is very informative and helpful and creates a relaxing atmosphere in which to learn. The class was a mix of ages and abilities. I was a complete beginner but never felt overawed and left with two abstract paintings. An added bonus was the option for lunch at the Ethiopian cafe next door which was excellent and an opportunity to get to know the other class members.
Elaine - 3 March 2023
Loved this class. Georgie was very friendly and gave clear instructions then let us get on to create. Nice bright studio
Elaine - 26 February 2023
I learned to be free and to trust my intuition. The process was fun - not intimidating. Georgie gave instruction then stepped back, giving guidance and encouragement where needed. Great venue - very light, warm - somewhere to get messy!
Elaine Phillips - 26 February 2023
I loved Georgie’s class. Really warm and friendly, supportive and encouraging. We had fun. I will definitely recommend x
Katya Lukina - 19 February 2023
Really enjoyed the session - at first thought that the amount of painting time wouldn't be enough but actually the time pressure made you just go for it instead of overthinking (something I do a lot when painting by myself...) Loved the games at the start to get the creative juices flowing and meeting others in the class. Would recommend to anyone looking to do something different and creative!
claire - 25 January 2023
Georgie is approachable and makes you feel at ease right away. Whether you have experience or not she'll adapt to you and you'll paint with your feelings for surprisingly beautiful results. Unexpected and refreshing experience! Her Dalston studio is light and cosy and lunch plans at local Ethiopian restaurant were delicious.
Ludovica Guerrieri - 22 January 2023
This has been my second time returning to Georgie’s class and it definitely won’t be the last! Every time I discover something new in myself and in the painting, the people you meet at the class are always lovely so don’t worry about showing up alone because you’ll make friends. Worth every penny, it’s like therapy where u get to bring your painting home !
Amy Bradley - 9 January 2023
The painting class with Georgie was great! Very nice way to spend a Saturday. The class let everyone tap into their own creativity and be experimental, whilst being guided by Georgie and exposed to new techniques :)
Christina - 20 December 2022
I thought Georgie's class was so fun and really enjoyed how it got me out of my normal thinking and into some creative flow. As someone who's not done much abstract art before, I was a little nervous, but Georgie made it comfortable and not intimidating at all. Her style of teaching and the small class size really allowed her to provide more support to everyone. I would definitely recommend this class and will probably take another one myself!
Cath Turner - 19 December 2022
A fun session getting you to think outside the box.
Vishna - 13 December 2022
Such a great creative day! Really enjoyed learning about new techniques and trying them out in my own masterpiece ! Georgie is so friendly and talented

Jarrad Power - 6 December 2022
Me and my mom had a fantastic time at Georgie's art class. We both learnt some new warm up techniques and some creative ways of adding texture to my art which has given me loads of great ideas. Georgie is a fantastic tutor, would recommend & definitely come back again!
Hege Aschim - 27 November 2022
I had a fabulous time with Georgie at her studio in Stepney City farm. I would highly recommend the experience for anyone, even if you don't have any experience with painting. She'll explain and demonstrate different techniques for you. And you leave with your artwork. A very wholesome and lovely activity! 12/10
Nik Kerwin - 27 November 2022
Great day with Georgie unleashing my hidden talents. What a lovely atmosphere and great tuition and ideas from Georgie to produce my painting which is proudly hanging on the wall.
Alessandra - 18 November 2022
It was my second time coming to the studio, and won’t be the last! Georgie is a great tutor, gives guidance without intruding and she will let you free to experiment and play on canvas. She sets a perfect environment, starting with a mindful walk around the farm with warm up painting exercises to loosen up. So hooked up I bought a bundle… so will definitely go back! :)

A great evening spent with Georgie, learning and creating. The session was fun and I would highly recommend it.
Benjamin Naughton-Rumbo - 8 November 2022
I was pretty apprehensive about going to Georgie's class - mainly because I am totally useless at art and I was unsure of what to expect. However, I was taken aback to how thoughtfully the day was put together. For someone who tends to bottle things up, it gave me a chance to try and express myself in a new way. Now, it's unlikely I'll be the next Anselm Kiefer but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of letting go, even if it was only for a few hours. So thanks Georgie!
Evie - 9 October 2022
A fantastic class as always. Good energy & great techniques shared
Nick Holland - 5 October 2022
A fun and enjoyable evening in another world!
Ema Cock - 4 October 2022
The whole experience was fantastic. A lovely setting, great class mates, amazing atmosphere and Georgie was excellent at teaching and encouraging us.
Hanna Svenhag - 2 October 2022
I absolutely loved my experience painting at Georgie’s studio. Georgie was super lovely and a great teacher. It was a small group with varying levels of painting background and as someone who isn’t comfortable in creative settings it was very liberating and encouraging so feel the guidance and the encouragement during the class. Would recommend this class to any age, gender and experience!
Racheal Millington - 26 September 2022
Had a really enjoyable time learning abstract painting techniques with Georgie at the farm. Met a lovely, friendly group of people. Great environment for inspiration & to let your creativity flow. Thank you.
Rebecca Wilson - 25 September 2022
Had a really nice few hours painting on the farm, the materials, instructions, and atmosphere were all really good.
Amalia Bountoureli - 19 September 2022
Loved the exercise around the farm, being in touch with nature is so vital. Lovely environment with a variety of materials to use. Very friendly and helpful teacher always willing to give you tips. Overall a really nice way to spend a Saturday morning. Would definitely recommend.
Ludovica Guerrieri - 18 September 2022
Best day ever! Soul food. I'll need to come every month. Georgie is an incredible teacher and the whole experience was just the highlight of my month.
Benerice Chan - 17 September 2022
Georgie is a delightful tutor. She included a lot in the three hour session which was very enjoyable. I was a complete beginner to acrylic painting but have been inspired to pursue this further. She explained different techniques and gave helpful individual advice when we were developing our paintings. I thoroughly recommend her classes.
Liz Craig - 6 September 2022
Had a wonderful afternoon with Georgie at the beginning of August.Enjoyed the exercises before putting paint to paper and then being able to produce an actual painting.The theme was ‘grounding’ and I was surprised to find that my painting was self explanatory without any preconceived ideas of what I wanted to do.Brilliant artist/teacher with patience ++.
monika kapluszuk - 4 September 2022
Very unique experience that let you expand your creativity! The class was not only focus on painting itself but it was about feeling the nature and ourselves. The atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly. Highly recommended !!!
Yashoda Patel - 4 September 2022
Was an amazing class. So much fun.
Murray Phair - 20 August 2022
Georgie was great - really welcoming and friendly, and the studio has a lovely set up and surrounding area. We both enjoyed it a lot - a lovely way to spend a couple of hours!
Lucy Craig - 17 August 2022
We had a lovely session with Georgie. We walked around the farm and she took us through some exercises before going back to the studio to learn different techniques to create our pictures. A great way to broaden your artistic horizons.
Rupal Shah - 17 August 2022
I absolutely loved this art class! Georgie guided me in re-creating a painting I had seen online. I learnt a variety of techniques that will help me create more paintings at home. The setting was absolutely beautiful as well! Highly recommend this class.
Anne Gunn - 16 August 2022
Georgie had a calm, relaxed manner and perfectly balanced warm up activities and technique teaching. I learnt a lot and felt empowered. The venue was perfect.
Murray Phair - 17 July 2022
We had an awesome time at Georgie's paint studio. George was really energetic and friendly; the studio set up was great; and the area had several great food and drink options as well as being a super place to just bimble around. We'd both very much recommend! :)
Emma Freeman - 16 July 2022
Loved our visit to the farm for Georgie’s art lesson! Such a lovely and unique experience. Would highly recommend.
Anna Nemeth - 13 July 2022
What a great class! Georgie really helps you tap into your creativity. If you're hesitating, do it - you won't regret it.
Hannah Poulsen - 3 July 2022
Great. Had a good day. Georgie definitely has the right personality for this.
Louis - 2 July 2022
Such a brilliant class! The setting is ideal, arriving at the farm you feel like you’ve left the city completely. Georgie was amazing, she led us through some great exercises as we walked around the farm to help us find inspiration and get creative. We then went to the studio and began painting. Everyone was at different levels and Georgie was great at creating an atmosphere where we could all express ourselves however we wanted. She showed us various techniques and answered the many questions we had. Couldn’t recommend the class enough, you’ll leave feeling relaxed and inspired :)
tania anastasiadis - 27 June 2022
Georgies class was like a breath of fresh air! An opportunity to stop the clock and be creative. Walking around and gathering any materials you might want to use and getting inspired was such a great way to start the session. I hadn’t picked up a paint brush for years - no matter what experience you had or didn’t have Georgie created a warm and non judgemental space and we had a lot of fun! Would have no hesitation in recommending that you come and have a go!!
Hannah - 19 June 2022
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!

Great time exploring some new techniques really well explained by Georgie in a lovely setting. Also created a great piece I’m proud of with her help.
Emma - 13 June 2022
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 - 12 June 2022
Such a lovely day being creative in nature with Georgie as a lovely host!
Percy Fagent - 12 June 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 - 6 June 2022
Georgie leads a great session in a great location.
Jenny - 5 June 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 - 24 May 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 - 15 May 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 - 11 May 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 - 10 May 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 - 25 April 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 - 21 April 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.

Jackie Plant - 14 April 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 - 13 April 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 - 6 April 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 - 3 April 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 - 3 April 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 - 2 April 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 - 17 March 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 - 14 March 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 - 13 March 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 - 12 March 2022
Learn how to use acrylic paints and use other textiles to make landscapes. Great fun and very friendly atmosphere Highly recommend
Melissa - 11 March 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 - 7 February 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 - 6 February 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 - 24 January 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 - 23 January 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 - 23 January 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 - 22 January 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 - 2 December 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 - 13 November 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 - 30 October 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 - 28 October 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 - 9 October 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 - 9 October 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 - 4 October 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 - 19 September 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 - 22 August 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 - 21 August 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 - 10 August 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 - 27 June 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 - 12 June 2021
Great Class; Great Location; Great Teacher! Couldn't recommend more, either as a present to someone else or for yourself.
Maj Abrahamsson - 7 June 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 - 4 June 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 - 26 May 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 - 24 May 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 - 23 May 2021
I would highly recommend this session! We had a lovely time at Georgie's studio. She provided a safe and joyful space to get creative and have lots of fun.

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 - 10 May 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 - 27 April 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 - 10 December 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 - 1 November 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 - 14 October 2020
Had a great class, lots of tips and it's in a fab location to grab some lunch afterwards.
Rosanna Royds - 20 September 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 - 20 September 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.

Meghna - 8 August 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 - 18 July 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.

Patrizia Chiarappa - 14 July 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!

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 - 22 January 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 - 22 January 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 - 22 January 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.

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.
Zena - 9 June 2019
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
Kevin Egan - 18 May 2019
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!
Laura Cenciai - 15 May 2019
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.
Izzy Fraser - 17 April 2019
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!!
Debbie - 14 April 2019
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
Nick - 1 April 2019
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!
Margot Gagliani - 1 April 2019
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.
Louise - 26 March 2019
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!
sinem - 15 January 2019
It was a great start to the weekend! Georgie is amazing! I am looking forward to doing it again
Nicola - 29 December 2018
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!
Roberta - 15 December 2018
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.
Alice - 23 November 2018
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!

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!
J Stubbs - 20 October 2018
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.
