Welcome to The Zingy Studio, a sunny space that blends creativity with education to help the artist within, bloom.

New online class with Skillshare

What is zing?

It is your special ingredient. Your golden hour. The essence of your world. The driver of your dreams. The beat to which you move. The joy you feel. The magic that you make. It is sunshine behind your smile. The reason for your bloom. It is that thing, the thing that makes you, you.

Creative Mentoring

This year I have decided to take on selected clients to support as a creative mentor which I absolutely love! I can help with one-off consultations, brainstorms and exercises to help improve creative flow, as well as on-going support.

This workshop has been hugely popular with the school holiday program. We use air dry clay in a vast array of colours, inspired by the Memphis Design Movement for a fun and super creative learning experience!

Hello and Welcome to The Zingy Studio! A very practical and very creative studio that uses a range of disciplines to develop holistic design solutions, and creative education programs for commercial and community groups. At the helm of Zingy is artist and educator Miranda Sims, who loves nothing more than teaching others the joy of artistic practice and in turn finding their very own zing.

Over the years, Miranda has cultivated successful careers in education and design but what truly makes her an innovative leader is her ability to work both intuitively and analytically. This unique blend allows her to work with a variety of individuals and brands such as digital education platform Skillshare, Incinerator Gallery, City of Boroondara and City of Great Dandenong.

Miranda’s latest offering also includes creative mentorship which enables her to work closely with individuals on customised design solutions and practical strategies to help them bloom into the creative they dream to be.
