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 explore Nocturnal Drawing. Led by artist Tom Spooner, the event will begin with a short presentation on his work and approach to illustration. After this, you are invited to explore the museum, recording your experiences through drawing. Participants will explore the ways the night informs our navigation of the city, and the urban experience of nature.
