Service Description

Boats and harbour life have been an endless source of fascination for artists through the centuries and up to the present day. Inspiration is from the perspective of art making ..... drawn from the reflections of water, open skies and bustling life around the harbour. Join Helen Jackson over three Fridays to capture life around the Harbour of Leith. Helen will take you to three different spots to enable you over the three sessions to capture the harbour from different angles and perspectives. Helen will also have an undercover venue arranged should the weather not co operate at any point which she will communicate with the group closer to the time.
