28th August: SketchCrawl at Sheffield Fayre

It's SketchCrawl time again - hurrah! This Sunday, we are going to spend the day at the Sheffield Fayre in Norfolk Park. There are all the usual marrow-growing competition-type things, but there are also a series of historical re-enactments going on throughout the day, which could be interesting to draw. 

There's no set schedule this time - we'll work it out as we go along, but we'll still follow the same formula of moving as a group and spending an hour or so at each location.

If you want to join us, just turn up with your sketchbook at the park's main entrance on Granville Road at 10.30am. It is free to take part and also free to get into the fayre. Note: there is no car parking.

If you've never been to a Sheffield SketchCrawl before, it's a very relaxed, fun event, open to all abilities and ages. There's no tuition: the idea is simply to share something we enjoy, supporting and inspiring each other. You can come for the whole day and join in with the sketchbook-sharing session at the end of the afternoon, or you can come and go as you like.

Email me if you want to go on my mailing list for future SketchCrawl events. It's an exciting time, as we have 2 more days coming up really soon, trying to squeeze as much in as we can before the weather turns: there's a Tour de Sketch on Sept 1st and a day in the Yorkshire Sculpture Park on Sept 10th.

Looks like a great event. I am way too far away to participate though. Love you art.
