Learn speed sketching skills in beautiful surroundings
No prior knowledge is needed for my relaxed and friendly workshops, I provide all the materials and you will create a number of sketches out on location before adding detail and watercolour whilst discussing your pieces over refreshments, before leaving with a unique piece of art and souvenir you created yourself.
10am – 4pm, £95 per adult which includes all materials, lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
Join local bookbinder Cass Barron to create your own A6 (landscape) leather, or pleather, covered sketchbook, complete with decorative exposed stitching and a nifty fastening to store your pens and pencils.
Then after a well deserved lunch break, I will take you and your newly bound book on to the streets for a sketching tour, where you’ll learn some tricks of the trade and get some gentle encouragement to fill those blank pages. On colder days, sketching will be mainly indoors at the stunning Scottish Portrait Gallery.
This workshop is kept to eight or less people to ensure a one to one learning experience for all. It is a great opportunity to let your creativity flow in a supportive environment, learn a range of skills and leave with a personalised sketchbook.
