Event Description

Get creative with the Edinburgh Sketcher and improve your sketching skills.

Explore our building with sketchbooks in hand, using ink and watercolour to bring your visit to life. Either stop by during our drop in session, or book onto one of our workshops.

Use our new exhibition about the Scottish stonemasons who built the White House for inspiration. Create sketches of the famous Scottish Double Rose or other fascinating collections, with renowned illustrator Mark Kirkham, the Edinburgh Sketcher.

Learn techniques like shading and shadowing and discover how to bring 2D drawings to life on paper. You’ll learn ways to make your drawing jump off the page, add depth and make your design appear more 3D!
