Hi, my name is Tamar, I am a qualified art teacher and I have been teaching art & design for 15 years. I founded The City Workshop Edinburgh as I want to bring the joy of making to as many people as I can. I love seeing the happiness that creating art brings and I believe that art is for everyone. There are so many reasons to learn an artistic skill; whether you want to study traditional techniques or switch off from the pressures of life, I offer the perfect environment to try something new.
