Event description
Take sketchbooking to another level! Work collaboratively, be inspired by storytellers, create and discover unexpected visual narratives.

About this Event

Sketchbook Circle is a sketchbooking project for adults and is suitable for all abilities and skill levels. Whether you are a professional artist or a complete novice who 'can't draw for toffee', we would love you to get involved. All you need is enthusiasm, a little bit of time for yourself and a sense of adventure.

How will it work?

  • You can either choose to provide your own sketchbook, or make one at the workshop on Sat 25th January (instruction and materials provided).
  • You will be randomly allocated 2 partners from the circle - Partner A and Partner B. You will be notified by email and receive full instructions before Saturday 25th January 2020.
  • After 2 weeks of working in your own sketchbook (you can do as little or as much as you like) you will pass it on to your Partner A via a special box at Stirchley Library, and you in turn will receive a sketchbook to work in from your Partner B. After another 2 weeks the sketchbooks will be passed back to their original owners.
  • This process will repeat every 2 weeks until 16th May, when all books will be submitted to go on show in the library.
