Introducing our Day workshop in sketching.
Have you ever wanted to record your memories of a visit using your own sketches and illustrations?

This workshop will show you a variety of ways in which you can capture special places using pen, pencil, watercolour and other simple materials in a sketchbook. From drawing special items like lamps and furniture, to details and features as well as views, this day workshop will give you some tools to get started in the delightful historic setting of Elizabeth Gaskell House. From creating line drawings and textures, to adding creative colour, you will be able to have some fun recording your visit in a sketchbook as well as taking away some tips and tricks for future sketching.
