Tile Painting Workshops with Esther Cohen

Fridays throughout April – September

Join us for a fun half day of tile painting and create a colourful memento of your time at Tantallon Studios. This workshop is suitable for all levels and experience – from beginners to professional artists.

The real working artist’s studio offer the perfect location to inspire your painting, with sweeping views out to the Firth of Forth.

What to expect

Local artist Esther Cohen will guide you on the various techniques involved in creating your very own beautiful tiles. You can experiment with large brushes and a variety of paints to capture the enchanting, ever-changing skies over Bass Rock.

Watch Esther demonstrate how she creates her incredible tile artwork, then get stuck in yourself. It’s an ideal workshop for friends, family, or couples.

You’ll also get a tour of the studios, and to meet the other resident artists. Plus there’s free coffee and cake to keep your energy levels up!

“The tile painting workshop at Tantallon Studios with Esther Cohen was brilliant. The demonstration was easy to follow and Esther was on hand to give advice and ideas on how to create one of your own. Esther provided a relaxed atmosphere in the studio and a stunning backdrop overlooking Tantallon Castle and the Bass Rock – the perfect combination to be inspired and creative with paint and tiles.”
