Sketchy Bitches: Self-Love Special

With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, it’s high-time to indulge the greatest love of your life – YOU!

We all need to love ourselves a little bit more, so join us for a fun-filled day of creative ego-boosting as we explore and draw all the things that make us ACE - then pose for portraits like the Sketch Queens we are!!

AM session, 11-1pm:

We'll warm up with some speed-sketching, making self-portrait selfie sticks and drawing positive beauty products, before getting to work on individual pieces celebrating all the things that make us special. You can choose to either:

  • Make a zine on a narrative of your choice: things you love about yourself and your life, things you love in general, highlights of your life…  You can have so much fun with the concept too! Typographic illustrations of awesome adjectives, a series of self-portraits, a zine full of adverts promoting each of your greatest skills/features/characteristics…

  • Create an A3 ‘ace card’ featuring all the things you love and love about yourself!

PM session, 2-5pm:

In the afternoon, we’ll complete any unfinished work then relax and flow down with ‘the usual’ Sketchy Bitches routine: taking it in turns to pose and draw pocket-sized portraits of each other, which you’ll get to take home at the end as a reminder of the lovely people you shared the love-in with!

Tickets £18 early bird / £20 standard and include all materials, tea/coffee & snacks! 

This event will be co-hosted by:

  • Dulcimer Draws: Artist and Founder of @SketchAppeal who is slowly but surely learning to love herself a little more thanks to drawing!

  • Sarah Fox @TinyVictories: Sketch Appeal Associate, zine-maker and pioneer of positive mental health.
