Drawing Little Houses

The Little Houses Improvement Scheme’s Bennet House: Study House project invites you to discover the long history of building restoration in the burgh of Culross on a sketching tour. 
 
Join Mark Kirkham ‘The Edinburgh Sketcher’ (http://edinburghsketcher.com), and Diane Watters, Buildings Investigator with Historic Environment Scotland to investigate the burgh’s architectural history through observation and drawing. Learn to improve your sketching skills by discovering some of the hidden architectural gems preserved by the National Trust for Scotland over the last 80 years. 
 
The workshop includes a hard-hat tour of Bennet House, the latest Little House under restoration in the burgh.
