I dreamed of coming here as little girl, I did it... so can you!
What kind of experience do you have?
I was determined to have had my own business since I graduated from The Royal College of Art in 2004. I have produced uniforms for Samsung, Virgin Media, Benson and Hedges, Camel, Mayfair, Trebor (series of special adverts for the Olympics) and Virgin Mobile. I have had exhibitions at The Victoria and Albert Museum, sold works to the Bank of America, GlaxoSmithKline and John Lewis. Current clients are Alicia Keys, H&M, Giorgio Armani, Vanity Fair, Lindex, McQ, X-Factor, Kurt Geiger, Uniqlo, The Kardashians, Natalie Portman, Daniel Craig, George Clooney, Disney, JWT, River Island and Adidas.

I have worked for designers here in the UK, in Europe and in America. Matthew Williamson, Pucci, Betty Jackson, Kate Spade to name a few. High profile clients that I tutor are from countries such as Saudi Arabia, China and Russia. Travelling to these countries is part of my job.
How much do you charge?
OCTOBER OFFER FOR NEW STUDENTS! Arty Classes are charged at £120.00 for UK students and £130.00 for international students maximum of 2 hours, any hours there after are charged at £40 for UK passports and £50 for International passports. Travel is not within this charge.

I also offer a consultancy service for those wanting to start their own fashion/accessories label or art exhibition. I am happy to work both in the UK and abroad - costs do vary with international travel - POA.

Working through the night? Not a problem!
Where do you teach?
Arty Classes offers unique support on a one on one basis in the comfort of your own environment whether it be your hotel or your apartment – this way you feel comfortable and safe (and there is no need to carry all your artwork across London or dragging it through airports!) Should you wish to work in another environment – feel free to discuss.

Based in central London, The Arty Classes team travel throughout the UK and beyond. We have clients in America, Azerbaijan, China, Hong Kong, Monaco, New York, Paris, Porto Cervo, Russia, Saudi Arabia, St Tropez, Sweden and Switzerland. We also teach many more various nationalities here in London and are respectful to each and every culture and religion.

Weekly clients are in Paris - so a short trip/long trips are very popular. If you are moored at Porto Cervo - we will fly in and teach you!
When are you available?
Due to the nature of Arty classes - we freelance work, so we are able to work around you - even if it is working through the night!

Very short deadlines? Check out Arty Classes 'Emergency creative support'. We have a team of writers and creatives that can take the stress out of your work, sometimes - we simply have to much too do! I totally understand, so, please call me to discuss these options. We don't like to say NO!

International travel would need a little more time if you require me for longer periods - Holidays seem to book up fast with one to one crash courses being requested.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
Arty Classes is a one stop shop for all ages and abilities for creativity in Art, Fashion and textiles. Creativity is essential for the development of the right hand side of the brain.

With a programme that we invented called secret learning - students can be taught maths, science, English and many other subjects through creativity. Its brilliant!
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
Arty Classes prepare students for all level of qualifications and always with a English smile!
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes I do. I can forward to you as and when requested. It is enhanced.

The best years of my education as my dream became reality!
Tell me about some of your current students.
Arty classes have had various students of all ages, abilities and backgrounds over the years each and everyone unique. Starting at a young 6 year old girl in Knightsbridge - teaching her basic arts and crafts and how to use a sewing machine to helping an young Russian lady build her fashion brand and getting her work on the red carpet being worn by influential figures.

Most students study at top colleges such as Central St Martins, London College of Fashion, Chelsea College of Art, Parsons, FIT, Intituto Marangoni.

Its such a stressful time to shine - having an Arty Class mentor simplifies matters and so you don't stress your parents out! Some students request me once a week, others request me everyday, some I travel with and others I see only over Skype. We are here as much or as little as you wish this is the beauty of a creative 'Super Tutor'!

Arty Classes work with all nationalities and am respectful to each and every culture and religion. I am able to bring out the best side of my students and nurture their talents individually and in a group. Each student has progressed in their chosen art/textile direction.
Do you have a personal message for students?
We are passionate about bringing out the best in our students, nurturing their talents individually and as well as in groups. Each Arty Classes ‘graduate’ has progressed in their chosen art/textile direction. We love ‘Arty Classes’ and it shows in our students’ results and career development.

Why wait and dream to be that next top designer/artist when you can start to be that person today? Contact us and get CREATIVE!

Invest in an Arty Class mentor in October 2017 and be the best!
