Hello from the team at For Enjoyment
The amazing Nithraid have commissioned us to explore the fantastic location that is Kingholm Quay situated on the banks of the mighty Nith in Dumfries and Galloway, built in 1747 an integral part of the old Port of Dumfries.
We’ve put together some short films where we chat about the history and the natural history of this significant and beautiful area that sits alongside the Nith. Our short Potted History goes over the fascinating story of the area and we then explore some of the Flora to be found on the banks of the river in late August and early September.
We finish with an Art tutorial from Frank Hayes from FE, he talks about some of the basics of getting lines down with pencil on paper. A short introduction into sketching in the great outdoors and how to take some time out to explore some creativity whilst enjoying such a picturesque area, perfect for anyone of any ability who fancies a creative challenge.
