Sketchbook Workshops

These outdoor workshops are postponed until further notice. If you would like to be contacted once the workshops restart please send an email to or check the website which will be updated when they recommence.
. In these workshops Gallery artist Ness Lannen take you through the basics of drawing and painting in two hours. All abilities are welcome from the artist wishing to revisit the essentials to the complete beginner.


Sketchbook Workshops give you the opportunity to put your mark making to the test. Initially we will be looking at line and tone in pencil, charcoal and pen; colour will be introduced later in the workshop giving you the opportunity to work in ink and oil pastel and with found drawing materials, so be prepared to forage and get creative! You should have time to produce a more finished piece.

Your sketchbook will become a treasured diary filled with images of special friends and landscapes.
We will be working observationally from the natural environment, and the workshop will finish with an informal chat and time to admire each other's masterpieces.

The price includes all materials; you will even have some to keep so that you can continue to sketch. We will be outside sketching so please dress appropriately. The workshop is for individuals and groups with a maximum of 6.
