About the Tutor:

'Hi , I’m Tanya and I’m a local Sutherland Shire resident of 27 years. Originally a country girl but I think I can safely say I’m now a local based at Engadine. I have been married for nearly 28 years and a wife to identical twin 18 year old sons. A mum to 3 dogs as well.. Life is full.

Creativity is in my blood, for as long as I can remember I’ve been making things with my hands. Originally moving to Sydney to study fashion designing, to then being in the fashion industry for 20 years. Then starting and running my own photography business Tindale Images for the past 15 years. Thanks to Covid and lockdown I pivoted and learnt clay and loved it. Two years later starting my own Clay workshops “Cork and Clay” for the grownups and “ Cordial and Clay” for the kids. I’m loving the process of working with clay and creating totally bespoke, one of a kind pieces. I’m looking forward to these workshops with the college and can’t wait to meet you all.'
