What to expect

During the Museum’s Friday Late opening, 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 focus on the theme of Mapping Memory. Led by illustrator Olivia Twist, the event will begin with a short presentation by Olivia on her work and approach to illustration. After this, you are invited to explore the Design Museum and its collections to create a series of sketches that explore our different relationships to place and their role in shaping our identity.

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.
