Landscapes of Water
An exhibition of work by artist, Lesley Banks which beautifully captures the magnificent coastal and inland waterways of Scotland.
In contrast to the calm surface water of canals these vast coastal vistas offered Lesley a very different challenge. Dramatic rocky jagged outcrops stretch out to the sea at Castle Lachlan in Argyll. The rhythmic sound of the waves a constant background hum to the seagull screams.
Family activities during school holidays. STEM workshops for schools including ‘How the Vulcan Floats’, ‘Wildlife in the Park’ and ‘Heavy Metal – Iron Burgh Innovations’
