Art Workshops & Classes

I run occassional art workshops in painting and drawing techniques, currently from Doodles Ceramic Studio in Marchmont, on Monday evenings. I usually run a block of two workshops at a time on consecutive weeks, where we often start some pieces of work the first evening and finish them on the second evening.  These sessions are designed to be fun and relaxing, for beginners or improvers wishing to carve out a bit of creative time for themselves, while learning new art techniques. 


If you would like to be added to my email list for Workshops, so you will then be notified in advance of any upcoming workshop dates, please email me on  


I currently have FIVE upcoming workshops (see below details). 


TO BOOK please email me back, stating which nights you'd like to book for. Payment can be made in advance by bank transfer, or on the night in cash. (To be fair to everyone, I will require full payment if you cancel a booking with less than 7 days notice.) Feel free to advertise to anyone else who you think may be interested. 

30th September & 7th October 
"Figure Drawing from Life" 

I've booked a lovely model for these two classes and she will be posing (clothed) for us to work from. 
We will practice various techniques for creating expressive drawings using graphite, watercolour, charcoal and soft pastels. We will work on a selection of 5mins, 10mins and 20 minute poses, as well as fun warm up exercises! 

WEEK ONE (Sept 30th) - Drawing the Clothed Figure (charcoal and pastels)
WEEK TWO (7th October)- Portrait Drawing (pencil and watercolour)

You can book for either one or both classes.
£25 per class including ALL MATERIALS (As I need to pay the model fee, I cannot offer the usual two-class discount for this block of classes)  

28th October & 4th November
"Mixed Media Painting with Collage"

In these classes we will explore creating collaged paper gounds, onto which we can then draw and paint with a mixture of materials including acrylic paint, soft pastel, oil pastel, tissue and patterned papers. 

WEEK 1 (28th Oct): Mixed Media Flowers

- Working from flowers/plants in the studio
WEEK 2 (4th November): Mixed Media Landscapes

You can book for either one or both classes. £25 per class, or £45 for both.


25th November
"Christmas Cards with Ink & Wash" - £25

Draw your own unique Christmas cards for family and friends - example designs available to work from, or you can bring your own ideas! All materials provided, including metallic pens and glitter woohoo! (I will attempt to source some eco friendly glitter if possible...)
