What to expect

During the museum’s Friday Late Opening, a professional designer or illustrator sets a sketching task inspired by the museum’s permanent collection or most recent exhibition. Participants are then invited to tour the museum and sketch what excites them about contemporary design and architecture, before sharing their finished work at the end of the evening.

This month’s sketch will focus on the theme Being Human. Led by educator and artist Trevor Flynn, the event will begin with a short presentation, a few drawing tips and starter task related to our theme. After this, you are invited to relate your idea of Being Human to sketching the museum, its visitors and the permanent collection

With thanks to MOO, the first 100 people to sign up for the evening will receive complimentary MOO products to sketch on and the opportunity to join a 15-minute workshop at the start of the evening. The Design Museum café will also be open and serving drinks over the evening.
