tam in person

Want to meet me and have artsy fun together? I want to meet you tooooo! :) I’m so pleased to announce that now that my youngest (Elliot) is a bit older I can finally start offering in-person workshops and teach on fabulous art retreats! I’m SO excited about this! I LOVE and ADORE online teaching, but meeting fellow creatives in person and spending time with them is usually deeply exhilarating and nourishing for me! :) So, without further ado, this is what I’m up to. I hope we’ll get to meet each other on some of the events I’ll be involved in!

If you want Tam to teach as part of your workshop in your country/ town or as part of a retreat you are organising contact her on willowing AT gmail.com


Up and Coming Retreats/ Workshops

No in person workshops are planned for 2016. 

If you want to be notified for in person workshops for 2017, pls sign up to the newsletter here. :) 

Previous Retreats/ Workshops

Spring 2016

Tam taught at Jane Davenport‘s house for 2 weekends.





Jane and Tam ran a wonderful 2 day Art Party Bonanza in the fabulous country-side of East Sussex in the UK! We had such an awesome time! We hope to do it again next year! :D 









            Tam taught with Erin on: Call of the Wild Soul Art Retreat
Art Retreat in Glastonbury UK (July 4-7th 2013) 


We spent 3 epic days exploring feminine mythologies within while anchoring into the power of one of the most potent energy vortexes on our beautiful planet.  We gathered in the amazing town of Glastonbury and spent 3 days connecting, art making and relaxing.

    Oh how I wish I could make it to your part of the world for an art retreat. What a beautiful home you have Tam, and what a beautiful area you live in! I picture all sorts of flowers growing against the outside walls, as well as all sorts of vases filled with flowers inside your home. I don’t know what else to say. You’re such a beautiful lady inside and out. I know that your next artsy retreat couldn’t be anything else but special and magical. I can’t wait to hear about it!

    Love and Peace,

    Peggy Lindenthaler

    p.s. Please change my little icon. I’m really a nice and mostly happy person!

    If I start Lifebook 2014 now, it is September, do I have a whole year to do it? Also will there be a 2015 and if so should I wait for that one?

      Hi Susan, Gracie here at Willowing, hello! It is totally up to you, people are still signing up to Life Book 2014 now (registration closes for LB2014 on 30th September). All the content of Life Book 2014 is available and downloadable until the end of Jan 2015, so we advise students to make sure they download what they want throughout the year (DON’T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE to download, because the content will really disappear after Jan 31st 2015). Some students start Life Book at the beginning of the year, some dip in and out of lessons, some students join later in the year and do lots of lessons all at once or just the lessons they are drawn to… it really depends on what suits you Susan. There is a Life Book 2015 which opens for registration on 6th October 2014 (so exciting!). You can find out more here: http://www.willowing.org/life-book-2015/. Hope that helps? Let us know if you have any more questions and we hope to see you there! Gracie xx

    Hello! I am an art teacher looking at this for a professional development that will be paid by my school. I have 250.00 max to spend but am confused by the abundance of choices here as a newbie. I have some basic mixed media knowledge but love the idea of different artists sharing their talented lessons at my own pace. Since I teach all day weekends would be my only time to create. Which class would fit my lifestyle and budget. Also, I am assuming I will need supplies and would like to leave room in that 250.00 to get basic supplies for the class. I will need to submit this to our Board next week so would like to get a jump in the proposal class and materials. (mostly fluid acrylics I will need and some pens and whatever water soluble crayons they use…. Thank you!

    Are there other options for payment than pay pal for the 2016 life class? What is IT? I have read your info on the class, I don’t need healing, I just want to learn more about Mixed Media, does this class offer that? Thank you for your time, I await your response in my email address.

    Hi Tam and Grace….I bought the course Fabulous Faces in 2015 when I bought Lifebook. I never use it, is it too late to access it now? If I can, how do I access?
    Thank you

    Tam, hi! I went to the DC march here in the US. While coming back and talking with other women, I thought it might be a good idea to create a set of note cards with inspirational, feminine, or March oriented art. And also a quote on the inside. I would like then to be affordable for most and the proceeds to go to Planned Parenthood and/or other disenfranchised groups effected by our change in administration. Is this something you would be willing to contribute to? I can not donate large amount to of money, but thought I could get this going and manage it.
