A sketching workshop in nature

HoneyPotCeramics_outsideI am pleased to announce I will be running a one day sketching workshop in partnership the Honey Pot Arts and Crafts on Sunday July 26th.

Based in Ratho at the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena, the Honey Pot studio is huge, full of arts and crafts and with double doors to a secluded garden (within a disused quarry!), means this workshop will be able to include both outdoor and indoor sketching . The above sketch is from the garden, showing the impressive quarry rock faces that surround the EICA.


So join me for 2 hours of sketching , lose yourself in a world of crosshatching and watercolour. We will forage items to draw from the garden and create beautiful compositions. Through short timed sketches and fun activities you will relax into your art and discover a natural ability to record what you see in just a few strokes.


We’ll discuss and compare the artwork before mounting our favourites to take home.


This 2 hour workshop is aimed at Families: Adults £20, children (age 5+) £6 with an accompanying paying adult, who is also sketching. To book your place call Honey Pot Arts and Crafts on 0131 3336348
