About Us

The Art Exhibition in The Old Bluecoat School has been a popular feature of the Thatcham Festival since its inception 20 years ago.


Last year, Tanya Patey took over the responsibility of the exhibition and asked David Chapman to look after the administration.


We set up Tanya’s Art ‘n Craft Studio to manage the exhibition, which we did successfully last year.


David has been a student of Tanya since meeting her at the Thatcham Festival Art Exhibition 5 years ago.


Tanya is a freelance artist and teacher with a keen interest in all arts and crafts. In ‘normal times’, she provides one-to-one tuition from her studio (which includes a kiln, if your fancy is working with clay) as well as running workshops for different art groups. Currently, she is concentrating on developing on-line tuition for her students.


Tanya is always keen to embrace people with little or no experience and gently lead them into one of life’s key skills.
