MADE by Tamalia

Super-relaxed, creative classes for kids and adults (where you don't need to be Picasso to participate) with a side-order of mindfulness. Our kinda combo.

Weekend Escapes

These chilled-out Caversham-based creative classes are run by artist Tamalia Reeves, are all about feeling the therapeutic benefits of arts and crafts, giving you a big confidence boost as you develop your daubing. So if your skills are seriously rusty or indeed non-existent, worry not – this is a very supportive environment.

MADEby Tamalia is a colourful, warm and welcoming art studio, where you can step off the hamster wheel of life and indulge in some well deserved creative ‘me time’ – whether you’re a grown ups, teens or kids. This summer the kids club will throw gardening, art and mindfulness into the creative melting pot. She also offers creative writing courses, drawing classes; candle making, make a clay planter, eco resin coasters and so much more.

Tamalia is an extraordinary woman who is passionate about the positive impact of art and creative activities have on our mental health. During the first COVID-19 lockdown, she took part in a project funded by the National Lottery and Art Council UK delivering a series of videos connecting artists with the community. Her project Mindful Mini Makes, was specifically aimed to help kids and isolated adults navigate the loneliness of the pandemic, by connecting them safely through art.

She does group or private lessons, group get togethers and cool classes for kids and teens. I’m a firm believer in everyone needing a hobby – otherwise life’s just work, work, work (paid or otherwise) – and if you’ve got a creative, visual bent that you want to explore then this is a great place to start. Next stop, your own exhibition (don’t forget to invite me to the press launch).
