Each year Glasgow Building Preservation Trust runs Doors Open Days as part of European Heritage Days, where buildings throughout the city are open without charge, and special events take place to encourage people to find out more about the architecture of their city.  In 2013 I ran ‘Arty-Archi tours’ for the first time, as part of this scheme, offering an architectural tour of an area of Glasgow (Garnethill), taking in details of famous and less well know buildings, with guided sketching activities en route.  I have since offered tours of Glasgow several times, in the Garnethill, Bridgeton and Merchant City areas (as part of Doors Open Day) and on a similar format as part of activities in Ayr and Paisley, and also in co-operation with City of Glasgow College as a learning activity for HND Design students.

I was the winner of the Glasgow Building Preservation Trust ‘most innovative event’ award for Arty-Archi tours, and the event was also featured in a travel article by the Washington Post.
