During the first Friday of each month, a professional designer or illustrator will set 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 themes of home and identity. Led by designer and illustrator Erin Aniker, the event will begin with a short presentation and starter task related to Erin’s work. After this, you are invited to explore the Design Museum’s permanent exhibition and to draw and discuss objects that relate to your idea of home.

Bring your own drawing materials to use on the night. All drawing abilities are welcome.
