What we're about

Sketchy Bitches is a fun and friendly sketchworking group which connects and empowers women through creativity.

We meet for regular portrait ‘sketchworking’ sessions, where we take it in turns to pose and draw pocket-sized portraits of each other, which we get to take home at the end!

Sketchy Bitches is open to everyone who identifies as a woman, including trans, intersex and all nonbinary, agender and gender variant people. It doesn’t matter where you come from, how old you are or how experienced or ‘good’ you think you are at drawing: Sketchy Bitches unites us all through our desire to meet like-minds, support womankind and share in the joy of SKETCH!

Launched in January 2018, the Sketchy Bitches community is growing FAST! As well as running more events in London, we’re planning some in other towns and cities across the UK - as well as some exciting guest sessions and special full-day events - e.g. our International Women’s Day celebration (https://www.sketchappeal.co.uk/gallery#/international-womens-day-2019) back in March.
