New workshops at the Edinburgh City Art Centre – coming soon

Over the next couple of months Tessa Asquith-Lamb will be leading 3 new workshops at Edinburgh’s City Art Centre.

I’ve attended a few of these free all-day Saturday sessions in the past, and have always found them very interesting. I attended a couple of fashion-inspired workshops led by Tessa last year (Fashionable silhouettes and Elements of fashion – Still life), and am looking forward to going to these. If you are local, perhaps you might want to sign-up too? I might not be able to make all of them unfortunately, but I’ll be doing my absolute best to clear the time so that I can go!
