Single workshop: £15 Weekend ticket: £25  

BOOK ONLINE 

We are so happy to welcome Sketch Appeal to to their new home at the Create Place! Every month, they will host ‘Sketchy Bitches’, an afternoon of ‘sketch working’. Materials will be available but please BYO so you can all check out each other’s favourite pens! Tea, coffee and biscuits provided too.

On a mission to draw more in 2019? Want to experiment and bring more colour into your artwork - and your life? Come get creative and join Sketch Appeal for an inspiring 2-day colourfest! 

Day One: Sat 26th Jan

After a quick warm-up, we’ll work our way through a series of fun and easy challenges to produce monochrome images in each colour of the rainbow. We’ll then move on to experiment with different colour combinations and explore the different effects we can create with limited colour palettes.We’ll draw with coloured pencils, felt pens and paint pens. And most importantly, we’ll chat, laugh and have LOADS OF FUN along the way!

Day Two: Sun 27th Jan

Day two will focus on exploring and drawing in the style of different artists renowned for their use and love of colour – including Kusama, Miro and Klee. We’ll also experiment further with other materials, including pastels and coloured inks. You’ll get to take home a series of A3 ‘inspired by’ illustrations and one large-scale final ‘showstopper’ in the colour/s and style/s of your choice! NB: These are standalone workshops so don’t worry if you can’t make both dates – though you’ll get double the inspiration if you can make it to both! Activities are suitable for all levels and all materials will be provided, as will free sketchbooks and an endless supply of tea and biscuits! 

New Year New You: Creative Resolutions for 2019

SUNDAY, 20 January, 12:30pm - 3pm

FREE, BOOK ONLINE

Traditionally, the New Year is a time of reflection and setting out your stall for the year ahead. This workshop will enable you to consider what it is that you want for yourself this year using your creativity and imagination.

Together, we will create a visioning board that is a snapshot of your New Year

Resolutions alongside some optional reflective writing. Our hope is that you will have a touchstone that you can return to at any point to keep you on track with achieving your resolutions in 2019.

All materials will be provided and places are limited to 8 people.
