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 the intention of connecting with the innate creativity that already exists within each of us.  For centuries humans have instinctively created, but many people believe they’re no good so they don’t try. Georgie’s aim is to reinvent the purpose of painting as a means of reconnecting to ourselves. The classes are relaxed and Georgie offers guidance and structure but also encourages freedom of expression and risk taking.

Since graduating from a degree in English Literature and History of Art at Nottingham University, Georgie has exhibited internationally including at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Affordable Art Fairs and the Museum of Goa in India. Her work is held in public and private collections across the UK. Georgie has been a guest lecturer at Queen Mary University.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

My two girls (5 & 6 y/o) loved Georgie and her class. They were nervous at first but soon could not wait to try the next activity that Georgie had in store. It was a great morning of art and thinking, and using natural materials as subjects and texture in their art. The venue was also perfect as parents and peruse the local farmers market while the kids get artsy and the farm serves as attraction and inspiration

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

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!

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 ;)

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

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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 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.
