Wendy Tate - Professional Tuition

​​Wendy Tate graduated from Hull University with an MA in Painting and a BA in Fine Art in 2002. Since then she has taught on the BA Fine Art Course for the Grimsby Institute for Further and Higher Education for 13 years, during which she has also run her own workshops, demonstrations and talks. She now runs, in partnership with artist Rob Moore, her own print making and painting studios in Scarborough, North Yorkshire. Wendy has been a practicing artist for the past 20 years specialising in a poetic depiction of the landscape around her in a variety of media including painting, drawing, print-making, video and photography. Her work can be found on
Wendy enjoys nothing more than walking in the countryside, with her camera and sketchbook, capturing its secrets and then proceeding to explore them through a variety of approaches.
Wendy is now a full time artist and teaches most printing methods as well as drawing and painting. She can bring a small press or drawing session to a group or host small groups in Scarborough, at Alma Printmaking Workshops. Drawing taken into print making, dry-point, lino, mono-printing, and combinations of collograph and carborundum printing have all proven to be popular subjects.
