Friday Night Sketch: Narrative Objects

A free drop-in evening of drawing throughout the museum on the first Friday of the month.

Supported by

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’s sketch will focus on narrative objects. Led by illustrator Jess Nash, the event will begin with a short presentation on her work and approach to illustration. After this, you are invited to explore the museum, recording your experiences and observations through drawing. Taking inspiration from our collection, participants will retrace their histories through the designs that have been integral to their lives.

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.
