City Centre Summer Sketching

Hi Sketchbookers!

Sincerest apologies for not being in touch and thankyou for those of you who e-mailed me to ask about new events. I've been mad busy with work over the last few weeks and weekends have been chocca too.

Anyway, next event - lets keep it simple as I'm expecting August to be nice weather. Meet in Castlefield by Dukes bar and Albert's Shed and then draw around there  - lots of canals, bridges, trams, old  and new buildings, canal boats etc. We can start there, have a few pints in the sun and then move on to other locations. 

I hope this suits everyone. Thought it would be easy and straightforward for people to get to.

Look forward to seeing you all and apologies again.

Matt ;o)

    Really enjoyable to sketch around Castlefield and in the MOSI. Thanks for organising it Matt. It was good to see everyone.

    Thank you all that came! I just can't get it right with the weather but it was nice to see you all! Shame we all seemed to lose each other at the end but the MOSI is a big place. Look forward to seeing you again soon! ;o)

    Thanks Matt for organising this again. Although a bit soggy, it was grand to get out and join others in sketchbooking and good to meet other like minded souls.
    all the best

    Hi everyone! I'm going to join you for the first time! Can you give any useful tips what to take with me?.. a chair, sketchbook, pencils will be enough?
    Matthew or anyone, can you please leave me your mobile number in case I don't find you, as I don't know the city very well... thanks!

    Unfortunately I'm no longer able to make this but hopefully can join next time. Also I was wondering if you ever arrange sketchbooking days in the peak district or Sheffield? That would be a bit easier to get to for me, maybe I should set one up here too! :)

    • Curlyjo

      Kate, I'd be up for it I'm in Sheffield too :)
