What to expect

During the first Friday of each month, a professional illustrator sets a sketching task inspired by the museum’s collection or exhibitions. Participants are then invited to tour the museum and sketch what excites them about contemporary design and architecture, before sharing their work at the end of the evening.

This month, sketchers will explore the impact of mark making. Led by illustrator Grace Holliday, the event will begin with a short presentation by Grace on her work and approach to illustration. After this, you are invited to explore the museum, recording your experiences through drawing. Participants will immerse themselves in the creative process, testing different marks and gestures with a focus on the physical traces left behind by their movements.
