Sketching Elizabeth Gaskell’s House

****** Sorry this workshop is now sold out but we do have a second workshop on Friday 26 January *****

Introducing our Day workshop in sketching.

Have you ever wanted to record your memories of a visit using your own sketches and illustrations?

This workshop will show you a variety of ways in which you can capture special places using pen, pencil, watercolour and other simple materials in a sketchbook. From drawing special items like lamps and furniture, to details and features as well as views, this day workshop will give you some tools to get started in the delightful historic setting of Elizabeth Gaskell House. From creating line drawings and textures, to adding creative colour, you will be able to have some fun recording your visit in a sketchbook as well as taking away some tips and tricks for future sketching.

Liz Ackerley is an urban sketcher and reportage illustrator who loves to convey a sense of place and occasion in her drawings. She runs workshops from her studio and in various venues. She works to commission for a variety of private and commercial clients and recently produced two illustrations of Elizabeth Gaskell House one of which was used on Christmas Cards in 2016. She records events and activities as they happen and loves to record the world around her in sketchbooks. You can check out more of Liz’s work at lizsscribbles.com
