Croquis Café workshops are relaxed 2 hour gatherings to explore new techniques and subjects in an indoor setting. A great way to spend time with friends and learn new skills. No previous art experience is necessary, just a willingness to have a go!
You will need a basic sketch kit including sketchbook (smooth paper), pencil, pen with waterproof ink and a basic watercolour set with brush. I recommend your paper is minimum 160gsm weight, and you will also need a water pot and tissues/rag. Spare sketch kits are available on loan but if you would like to borrow materials please indicate this on the booking form.
For those that wish to stay and continue the sketchbook banter there will be the opportunity to lunch together afterwards (and continue sketching if you wish!)
20€ per event, or 75€ for the series of 5 if booked before 11/11/2019!
Places are limited so advanced booking is essential. Please book online here or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
