What we're about

Fascinated by ideas and want to articulate them better?

Curious about a topic and want to see it explained in a drawing?

Join us for an evening, bring your favourite pen or marker and sketch along!

WHAT IS SKETCHNOTING?
Sketchnoting, or visual note taking, combines words with drawings in everyday notes to boost learning, memory and understanding. Sketchnoting is a practice that can improve your visual thinking and communication skills over time.

DRAWING SKILLS REQUIRED?
None!!! Sketching skills NOT required. You will pick these up naturally over time, so don’t worry :-)
