Join local artist Mark Kirkham - known locally as The Edinburgh Sketcher - for some gentle tuition and tips on how to fill your sketchbook or paper with quick watercolour drawings of flowers and trees in one of the New Town's beautiful parks.


Class sizes are kept small so that Mark can give you any help and support you need to get the most from your workshop. The class is suitable for beginners, returners and those who have attended one of Mark's New Town street-sketching workshops and want to practice sketching flowers and trees.


The price includes access to all the equipment you will need, all materials, and welcome refreshments at The Arienas Collective. Mark will also have kits available to buy if you want to carry on practising your new-found skills at home.


This is the afternoon session of our full day Bookbinding and Speed-Sketching Workshop.


Please note that our workshops are run from the first floor of a Georgian mews house and unfortunately we do not have lift access.

Speed-sketching Workshop: new dates coming soon

  • The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a supportive and welcoming home environment in the Edinburgh New Town. Spaces are limited to allow our artists and designer-makers to offer hands-on help and support. All equipment is provided and all the materials you will need (unless stated otherwise). Just turn up, leave any day-to-day worries behind, and immerse yourself in creating something unique.


    Refreshment breaks are an important part of The Arienas Collective experiences. They are a time to socialise, make new friends and chat to the artists and designer-makers. We are fortunate to have a fantastic range of independent shops and producers nearby and are proud to feature locally sourced food and drinks.


    The price includes all materials and refreshments, and of course you get to take home all the unique products you have created.


    All our experiences are also available to book as a private group. If you would like to book an experience for a larger number please email us.
