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.

I highly recommend Georgie's class. The class is a great introduction to texture and Georgie's approach is very encouraging and relaxed. I look forward to booking another class again soon.

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.

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

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!

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!

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!

This was a really excellent class. Having never really used texture in painting before, Georgie's teaching was brilliantly clear and we all had a really enjoyable hour and a half. It went much too quickly but I made a really interesting piece of art which I'm going to continue to work on with my new-found skills. Look forward to another course Georgie - thanks so much.

Georgie’s class was a really fun experience! I met some lovely people who are now friends. The classes were relaxed but informative and Georgie talked us through some different textures and techniques that she uses in her own art whilst encouraging us to branch off and experiment with any of the materials provided. All in all a fun and well-structured course that brightens up a Monday evening!

Georgie was a great teacher. She showed us lots of new techniques and effects that I never knew existed. She was very attentive and patient with us, giving us all equal time one-to-one and giving advice without making us feel we had to take it. I learnt a lot and was very happy with my final canvas which I have had framed and put on my wall! Would recommend

I found that the Landscape Painting and Texture course helped further my interest in texture and layer making. I loved learning new and unusual techniques which helped to create more depth in my work. The class was fun and free-flowing and as it was a small group, it was easy to ask questions and get feedback.

Highly recommend for any aspiring artists, or anyone that fancies taking few hours of their week for some therapeutic painting and to learn some thing new. Georgie was a really wonderful teacher and just being around her paintings was super inspiring. Would love to do another workshop when it comes up!

A really therapeutic evening spent in Georgie’s beautiful studios painting and exploring techniques. The atmosphere is very calming as it’s set on a farm and you’re surrounded by Georgie’s inspiring colourful artworks. Georgie helps you try out techniques and materials that you may have never used and shows you how to use them. The intimate group of 4 is just right as you can get the guidance you need and also meet new people! All in all, a very special find!

I just loved going to these classes! What an inspirational setting, expert guidance from Georgie, and ample opportunities to create and paint! I was really in need of something to unwind in the evening and to rediscover a love of painting, bringing home several paintings at the end was a bonus! Highly recommend, whether you’ve painted before or not.

Georgie is an amazing teacher. Really helpful and knowledgeable and she lets you learn at your own pace as you experiment with different techniques. She makes it easy for someone with very little skills to create beautiful works of art.

Had a great time on this course. Was able to get hands on with all the different kinds of textures and by the end had made four different paintings I was pleased with. Lovely studio in a great setting... loved being able to go and see the farm animals on breaks!

I took my niece to Georgie's class for the 16th birthday. We both had an amazing time. Georgie taught us how to achieve different textures, mix colours and use all the materials. She is an inspiring and enthusiastic teacher who is passionate about art and provided us with a relaxed and creative space. I would highly recommend this class.

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.

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 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!

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.

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!

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

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!!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
