Drawing on the inspiration of Ruskin our much-loved workshop, led by urban sketcher Liz Ackerley, will teach you how to capture special places using pen, pencil, watercolour and other simple materials in a sketchbook. From drawing special items like lamps and furniture, to details, features and views, this day workshop will give you the skills and tools to get started, in the delightful historic setting of Elizabeth Gaskell’s House. As well as creating line drawings, textures, and adding creative colour, you will also have fun recording your visit in a sketchbook, and will take away useful tips and tricks for future sketching.

During this mid-summer workshop, you’ll have the chance (weather permitting!) to get out into the glorious garden for inspiration too.
