The Studio

Bramber Studio
Bramber Studio is a family business that encompasses fine art, design, and teaching. It is run by Hazel Greene, contemporary visual artist and textile designer, and Cyril Stanley, designer and picture framer. The studio is situated in the countryside near Birr, County Offaly, and includes an exhibition space, a picture framing studio, and a teaching workshop. Art classes are held throughout the year at Bramber Studio and are geared for beginners as well as more experienced painters. The atmosphere is social, without pressure to engage in chat, and all the materials needed are provided in the price – including the coffee!  Classes are taught by Hazel Greene in a step-by-step manner, introducing a variety of subjects and styles, demonstrating different techniques, and encouraging people to try different things until they find what it is they like to paint. ‘Seeing people achieve something they’ve always wanted to but didn’t know they could is brilliant’ says Greene. ‘Painting is like handwriting, everyone has their own style – it’s not my aim to change someone’s natural style but to suggest techniques they could use to achieve the end result they want.’
