We have lots of amazing, free events coming up in the Colchester branch throughout August.
We have several Test it with Tea sessions running. These tester sessions will allow you to come and join us to try out lots of the materials we stock! It can be hard deciding between brands or venturing into a new medium when you aren’t quite sure how it works. This is the perfect opportunity to try before you buy, pick our brains for advice and join like minded people for a nice cuppa! We will be offering generous discounts across the products in store to those who attend our sessions.
Simply drop by the shop between 10am and 12pm on Thursday 15th August, Tuesday 20th August and Thursday 29th August. Please speak with a member of staff downstairs who will be able to show you up to the workshop area.
We will be providing standard tea and coffee. There is a hot water machine available should you wish to bring your own teabags/hot drink to make.
On top of these sessions we have plenty of free taster workshops happening in lots of different mediums. Taster sessions are free to attend, however the spaces are limited so you will be required to sign up beforehand as we cannot guarantee spaces on the day. Spaces will be given to those who have not attended a workshop with the tutor running the session at Tindalls before. Due to the limited spaces on offer if you book to attend and do not turn up you will not be able to sign up for further sessions. If you book and are unable to attend please let us know in good time so we can fill the space.

Joanne Turland is a new tutor for us here in Colchester! Joanna is joining our team and will be teaching traditional oil techniques! This is a first for us as we have not held traditional oil workshops here before! If you want to get a taste of what a whole day workshop would be join Joanna on Thursday 22nd August from 10am – 12pm. Joanna will be demonstrating the rest of the afternoon downstairs from 1pm – 4pm.
