Speed Sketching in the New Town and the Portrait Gallery

Dublin StreetI am very pleased to announce new dates for my popular speed sketching workshops, this time in the New Town with Arienas Collective, a new creative hub in the heart of Edinburgh.

Join us as we explore Edinburgh’s New Town and Portrait Gallery with sketchbook in hand, using ink and watercolour to record our city tour.

For the first time we will take watercolours with us which will enable us to capture more of what we see and more time out drawing before we return to our New Town base for a cuppa.

You will take home your favourite drawing in a frame plus a number of other personal pieces documenting your journey, creating a lovely package of self made art as well as an improved confidence in your own ability.


This workshop will run as both a full and half day introductory class to speed sketching, and also as a half day advanced course where we will make a montage of a particular location using your sketches. It is also available as a private group booking for up to 10 people.

Please see the link below for more details and to book through Arienas Collective. I look forward to meeting and sketching with you soon.

Spooky Sketch Classes this Halloween at Surgeons’ Hall Museums

SurgeonsHall_MuseumNight650This Halloween on Saturday 31st October I will be running three sketching classes at the recently revamped Surgeons’ Hall Museums.

If you haven’t visited since the Edinburgh educational attraction was reopened earlier this month, then this is the ideal opportunity. Open from 10am until 8pm, there will be a number of events taking place throughout the day and evening of the 31st October.


I will be using some of the exhibits on offer to share my speed sketching skills, and show how anyone can sketch and create a piece of art that won’t scare you this Halloween!
