Learn speed sketching skills in beautiful surroundings on one of my sketching tours

No prior knowledge is needed for my relaxed and friendly introduction workshops, I do now have a couple of more advanced ones for people who want to come back and concentrate on a particular area.

I provide all the materials and you will draw a number of sketches out on location before adding detail and watercolour whilst discussing your pieces over refreshments. Leave with a unique piece of art and souvenir you created yourself.


Unfortunately due to the increasing concerns within the UK and across the world around the spread of Covid-19 /Coronavirus my workshops are currently on hold.

If you have signed up to one of my events through a third party they will be in touch to arrange a new date hopefully not too long in the future.

Thank you for your understanding and support and if you have any questions you can email me direct at contact@edinburghsketcher.com

Collaborative bookbinding and sketching workshop, with Arienas Collective

Friday 13th March 2020

10am – 5pm,  £95 per adult which includes all materials, a delicious 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 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 amazing Scottish Portrait Gallery.

The class size is kept small so that Cass and I can give you all the help and support you need to get the most from your day with us. 

This workshop is a great opportunity to let your creativity flow in a supportive environment, learn a range of skills and leave with a personalised sketchbook.
