Whether beginner or expert, come down and do some drawing – we’ll have the whole pub to ourselves, music, beer and plenty of art supplies provided.
Don’t worry if you’re a little rusty, or haven’t drawn anything before! This is a friendly environment where you can get advice on the techniques you’re interested in, or just be wild and experimental. People are also welcome to bring down other crafts, provided they’re not likely to cause any damage or excessive mess, or even acoustic instruments if you want to jam in a creative space.
Entry is pay as you feel, we recommend a couple of quid to go towards art supplies for the group.
