Supported by

MOO is an online print and design company headquartered in London, England. Passionate about great design and the difference it can make to the world, MOO offers a variety of premium print products including business cards, postcards, notebooks and more. With six locations across the United Kingdom and United States, MOO serves over 190 countries and was founded in 2006 by CEO and Founder, Richard Moross MBE.

What to expect

During the first Friday of each month, 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 take the Exquisite Corpse game as its point of departure. Led by illustrator and artist Amélie Barnathan, the event will begin with a short presentation by Amélie on her work and approach to illustration. After this, you are invited to explore the Design Museum and its collections to combine and collage different objects from the collection to create your own series of new assemblages.

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.
