KAPOW B*TCHES!!!

We’re so excited to kick off our brand-new series of collab events with the brand-new Cartoon Museum!

Join us for a night of playful portraiture in the colourful, swish AF surrounds of this newly opened space: channeling your creative superpowers to draw and transform your fellow Sketchy B*tches into a unique tribe of Wonder Women!

We’ll be drawing each other’s portraits on mini biz cards and using a variety of materials - mainly coloured pencils, felt tips, POSCAs and brush pens. And as per the usual Sketchy B*tches routine, we’ll ALL take a turn to pose for the rest of the group and we’ll all get to take home a stack of mini portraits at the end!

Tickets £10 including a free bottle of alcohol-free G&T from our lovely friends @SQUARE ROOT SODA

 
 

NB: The session will start at 6.30pm prompt so please ensure you arrive on time! You’re welcome to come earlier and check out the exhibition too - any time from 5pm. BYO bottle/picnic dinner as there’s no bar!

Expect all the usual portrait-sketching fun with a Spanish twist! You’ll get chance to experiment and play with different styles, as you choose whether to draw portraits in your own style, Picasso-style or add a surreal twist to your sketches and draw like Dali!

After a brief intro & warm-up challenge, we’ll take it in turns to pose whilst the rest of the group draw pocket-sized portraits of us - which we get to take home at the end!

Poses last approx. 10 minutes per person and we’ll ensure that everyone gets a go. The session will start at 7pm prompt so please arrive on time!

Dress code = FLAMENCO! Fans, flowers…all the stereotypes! ;)

80s BITCHES 2.png

Yazzzzzzz B*tches!!  It’s time for the 2nd of our Retrosketch sessions at Old Spitalfields Market, and this time we’re heading back to the 80s for a night of power-dressing, power-drawing fun!!

In keeping with the decade of excess (and to leave room for your side pony tail/perm/massive hair!), instead of the usual mini cards, we’ll be going BIG and drawing A6 ‘power portraits’!  We’ll also be working with a funky mix of colourful materials: including neon POSCAS, Brushmarkers, highlighters and felt tips a-go go! 

As well as drawing lots of funky retro portraits of your fellow B*tches, you’ll get to transform an old VHS tape into a fab new ‘Sketching Bitch Case’ feat. your favourite 80s film or TV show!  Perfect for stashing your portraits and pencils in, and yours to take home at the end of the night. 

Tickets £12 inc. all materials - BYO snacks & drinks

NB: There are only 12 spaces available so book in advance and be sure to arrive Ride On Time!!

V H YESSSSS!!!

Come and make a custom pencil case feat. your fave 80s film!

Birthday CAKE BIG.png

WHOOP WHOOP!!

Get pret-a-party and pret-a-portrait: cos it’s time for a special birthday edition of Sketchy Bitches!

Sophie is one of the longest-running members of Sketchy Bs and it’s her birthday soon, so we’re celebrating with a special Birthday B*tches party in Soho! It’s also my birthday on 1st August, so I’ll be gatecrashing the party too :)

OBVIOUSLY, Sophie and I will be posing first - and insisiting that you draw us with your non-dominant hand!

When it's your turn to pose, you'll get to call the shots and choose whether you'd like us to draw you Picasso-style, with our non-dominant hands, in specific colour combos....or something else entirely! Essentially, your pose - your prompt!

Tickets £10 inc. all materials, cake, tea/coffee and unlimited 90s TUNES!! And as ever, you'll get to take home a stack of mini portraits at the end: birthday cards for all!! :)

Hope you can make it!

Love, Dulcimer xxx

Sketchy Bs regular Sophie - already ready to party!!

Retrosketch #1: Vintage B*tches!

IMG_8808.jpg

Forget the great summer getaway: join us for a time-travelling ART-venture in Spitalfields instead!

To celebrate the summer and our love of bygone times, we’re hosting a series of nostalgic Retrosketch nights at Old Spitalfields Market - on #ThrowbackThursdays, obv!

If you love a bit of vintage and/or spend a lot of time trawling Pinterest for fun fashion ads and mag covers to draw, then you’re in for a treat! We’ll be playing with different materials and illustration styles each time, so these sessions are a great opportunity to experiment with new tools and ideas.

Sessions will take in the dedicated workshop space next to SOMA House, so it’s BYOB and dinner/snacks. We’ll supply all the materials and a suitable retro soundtrack!

Grab yourself a ticket and climb aboard the Sketchy Express!!


Our first session = Vintage B*tches!

You can’t beat the classics, so we’re kicking off our Retrosketch series with a Sketchy Bitches portrait session, but with a few twists! 

Instead of mini biz cards, we’ll be drawing on A6 kraft cards and working with coloured pencils, pastels and Tombows: all perfect for creating those vintage vibes!

 As usual, we’ll all take a turn to pose for the rest of the group to draw and you’ll get to take home your portraits at the end. 

Come on down and grab yourself a pack of gorgeous ‘Postcards from the Past’ with your face all over them!!

Only 12 spaces available - tickets £12 in advance
