Friday Night Sketch: Drawing with Shapes

A free drop-in evening of drawing throughout the museum during the Friday Late opening.

Supported by

MOO is an online print and design company headquartered in London, England. Passionate about great design and the difference it can make to the world, MOO offers a variety of premium print products including business cards, postcards, notebooks and more.

What to expect

During the first Friday of each month, 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 Drawing with Shapes. Led by illustrator and animator Steven Wilson, the event will begin with a short presentation by Steven on his work and approach to illustration. After this, you are invited to explore the Design Museum’s galleries and to listen to live music in the atrium. Using these as inspiration, you will create drawings that use simple shapes and pattern to represent your experiences. All drawing abilities are welcome.

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.
