Tamar Whitson

Art For Wellbeing Specialist

Hello, my name is Tamar and I have been teaching art and design for 15 years! I have taught art to young people and adults in a variety of settings around the world including schools, charities and within my own business, The City Workshop Edinburgh. Tamar has her PVG disclosure.


I have a BA(Hons) degree in Textile Design, a postgraduate teaching qualification and working towards a Masters in Art Psychotherapy. I am an experienced and knowledgeable educator; creating a fun, engaging and enjoyable

learning experience.

I want to bring the joy of art and craft making to as many people as I can. I never tire of seeing the happiness that creating art brings and I believe that art is for everyone. Creating art offers us so many benefits; building our confidence, allowing self expression and giving us a focus away from all our daily thoughts and worries.

I believe that everyone can create art and my classes give you the confidence to make your own individual art and craft pieces. 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. There is nothing better than creating your own piece of art or craft, whether for your own home or a gift for a loved one, you can proudly say ' I made that”!
