You tutor will be no other than Scottish artist Lesley Banks, who as artist-in-residence at Scottish Canals spent a year walking and painting along the entire 137 miles of the canal network.

With Lesley’s guidance we will explore the canal and its surroundings on and off the boat with our paints and pencils. Our partners Linlithgow Union Canal Society (LUCS) will take us to the plein air painting locations by boat and the journeys will be used for quick sketching. Back at the canal centre we have our indoor studio space for some more in-depth work. Each workshop day will have a specific artistic theme.

As a special treat, herbalist Anna Canning will take us on a herbal walk along the canal banks and teach us how to use what grows there to make our own natural balms and lotions. The base location is the beautiful historic town of Linlithgow, where Mary Queen of Scots was born at Linlithgow Palace in 1542.
