Everyone is welcome, from absolute beginner to experienced! Come and play!
Experiment with a huge range of exciting art materials, develop ideas or themes of personal interest and explore traditional and modern approaches to creative art making in a friendly, encouraging atmosphere.
Uniquely, Mindfulness Based Creativity Coaching is offered to help free you from creative blocks sabotaging creativity, enabling you to discover yourself and create from an inner authenticity rather than being stuck in trying to do 'good' art.

Enjoy time away from it all in the beautiful rural Suffolk village of Botesdale exploring any aspect of Creativity, Art or Photography that interests you on a completely personalised Art Break or Painting Holiday.
Your Art or Photography Break can be as short or as long as you want, at a time that suits you, and above all, it is individually tailor made to your own personal needs and interests.
Mindful Drawing, Painting and Photography Workshops and Retreats, are beautiful ways to combine personal development, self discovery and healing with artistic self expression.
Exactly what we do will depend on your interests.
Getting stuck or not being able to move forward is part of the creative process. Often personal issues such as fear, depression, procrastination, creative blocks, resistances, time management issues, low self confidence and misconceptions about what artistic creativity is, can sabotage personal and creative development.
This is when Mindfulness Based Creativity Coaching can be very helpful in enabling us to move forward. As a qualified coach, I am able to offer Creativity Coaching, Life Coaching and Mindfulness Coaching.
An exciting range of creative Art Workshops in TINY GROUPS runs throughout the year. Everyone is welcome, from complete beginner to experienced and professional. Some art workshops are specifically for beginners and others are more open access.
Personalised, tailor made Art Workshops at a time to suit you and your friends are also offered - just phone me, Zangmo, on 01379 897393 to discuss possibilities.
Art or Photography Tuition Gift Vouchers are available for anything on this website. Please contact Zangmo on 01379 897393 to discuss your requirements.
I am able to travel to give art workshops to your group or organisation nationally and internationally. Please phone me on 01379 897393 to discuss your needs.
Art Lessons or Creativity Coaching can be Face-to-Face, by Skype, email, post and phone and any duration you want. Since all learning is personalised, we can work flexibly together to create the learning experience which is right for you.
FACE TO FACE sessions at my spacious studio in Botesdale, Suffolk:
At times to suit you from 1 hour to two week retreats and breaks - you decide, or I can help you decide!
You can learn at your own pace, and have a session as little or as often as you want.
LEARN FROM HOME with Distance or Blended Learning:
If you are unable to visit Suffolk, I can also design a bespoke Distance Learning Art or Photography Course to meet your own individual needs and interests.
Skype, email and phone in combination with occasional face-to-face workshops of any duration you want can work really well to keep you motivated and feeling supported
Invite me to visit you to run an Art or Digital Photography workshop at home or in your centre either just for you, or for your group
