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. 


Workshop topics to date have included Expressive Flower Painting,  Drawing with ink & wash, Mixed Media Landscapes, Mixed Media Flowers, Draw Your Own Christmas Cards, & Drawing Nature, Painting Wildlife in Acrylics, and Still Life in Acrylics. 


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 have two upcoming workshops running on:


20th May 2019 - "Expressive Watercolour Painting", and 

27th May 2019 - "Painting with Ink & Wash"

£45 total (for both nights), or £25 for one night, including ALL MATERIALS

Small, friendly classes (Max 8 participants)   




 ""Expressive Watercolour Painting"


We will practice various techniques for creating expressive marks using watercolour paint, and then experiment with applying loose watercolour washes to a pencil sketch to enliven the surface of the painting and create visual excitement. We will also create a more abstract page of colour onto which we will make an ink drawing in week 2. 

27th May 
"Drawing with Ink & Wash"

Following on from the previous week, we will now work on making expressive ink drawings using dip pens and brushes, to which we will add colour using watercolour wash. Emphasis will be on drawing landscapes (from photos) and/ or plants/flowers (from life, in the studio). Please bring along any photos you'd like to work from.
