From the 14 - 20 October, have a look at Scottish Sands by making your own sand cards and getting hands on with soap carving and take part in the Big Draw on Saturday, 21 October in our workshop led by Edinburgh Sketcher, as well as doing animations and making scale drawings.Why not take part in our fun Stone Trail, a fun treasure hunt throughout the Shed.
