I grew up in Weston-super-Mare where my creative mum inspired me to try a variety of crafts, this passion for the arts continued through my education choosing to study a foundation diploma in art and design at Weston college, moving on to a BA (HONS) in textile design at Winchester school of Art. After graduating with a 2.1 in 2006 I worked as a technical instructor in printed textiles at Loughborough university.
During my time at Loughborough university I achieved an ‘Associate Fellowship’ in teaching at higher education. Having spent 10 years working at the university I made the decision to follow my dream and create a screen print studio. I relocated to my home town Weston-super-Mare and set up the studio to run creative workshops, fulfilling my passion for teaching others this wonderful craft.
Zara is part of the volunteer team that runs Weston Artspace, a creative studio space for local artists. She relocated her studio to the second floor at Weston Artspace, Weston-super-Mare.
Zara teaches screen printing to groups of adults or children, individuals can book planned dates online. Zara caters for one to one tuition, private bookings; birthday (adult or child), hen, family parties or groups.
