Art workshop in Southend-on-sea


Steve Lawes - me - is an artist local to Southend-On-Sea, and is active in the wider Essex county, producing commissioned pieces, helping other creatives, and running bespoke workshops in and around the Southend area. I can teach a wide range of art forms, helping beginners to access their creativity in ways that suit them. 

From teaching Mandalas, Zentangle, and other techniques, I have gained extensive experience in not only producing these kind of pieces, but also teaching how you yourself can create them

With these art workshops, I strive to make them safe spaces where everyone feels comfortable enough to freely ask questions, disagree or express their own opinions. As part of a healthy learning environment, I believe this is vital to a great workshop.

So, get in touch today to enquire about creating a bespoke workshop package for your organisation.

Southend based

Being only a drive away from the town centre, I can easily and efficiently organise these workshop events and really get involved. Having been involved in the local arts community for a substantial amount of years now, I've come to gain valuable knowledge about many different art organisations within the borough and beyond. 

This helps across all levels regarding the art workshops I offer, as I can competently run, set up, manage, and especially due to my local experience, I have a widened knowledge of venues, the locals themselves, and what the art community in Southend as a whole wants from such activities.
