We will meet you at Bethnal Green Tube station, which is on the Central Line and in Zone 2. From there it is around 20 mins walk to my studio. We will walk via the scenic route and you will see some of the lovely canals nearby which have very pretty boats and amazing street art and a great place to take some pics. We will go through the charming Broadway Market which is full of cute little shops and cafes – on Saturdays there is a fabulous street market too! My studio is inside a railway arch in a street that has a long history with contemporary art and is a friendly creative neighbourhood. I will show you the space where I work and talk about my art and you can see me create a spray paint t-shirt design using waterproof textile sprays. I can show you various techniques that I use in my art and then you can play around with the materials I use and get creative too!! The fee for the experience includes the t-shirt so you can take it away with you and wear it!!
Tere & Colin
I'm Colin and I studied art at the famous Camberwell School of Art. I have had my Railway Arch studio for 3 years and it’s where I create my art and I love it! I live with my partner, Tere, also an artist/ photographer, on a beautiful houseboat in East London and we are part of an amazing creative community! I have shown my work all over the world and sell my art at art fairs and through galleries and other contacts. I am a full-time artist, it is my life, it is my passion and absolutely love connecting with others who love art and want to know about what I create. I am very inspired by living in the urban city and East London is one of the best locations to be an artist!

We will visit the area around my private art studio and see the places I visit on a daily basis including specialist shops in Broadway Market and a walk along the Regents canal. I will take you to my studio which is private and not accessible to the public. It is a very special place full of bohemian character with a huge creative buzz!
