Who is it for?

This course is for people with an interest in taking an inquisitive, creative eye outdoors, and exploring the city in a supportive group.

Course details

The city is lled with inspirational and intriguing aspects, what better way to capture them than in your own sketchbook? We’ll be making our own personalised wire-bound sketchbooks, then taking them out into the city.
You’ll get to check out parts of the city that you might have overlooked, have some creative conversations and have a go at using some artist materials and techniques that you might not have used before.

This 4-week course will meet Tuesdays on: 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st July

Session 1: Artist sketchbook making. We’ll design and make wire-bound personalised artist notebooks, to set us up for the rest of the project (and beyond!).
Meet at: St Sidwell’s Community Centre Sidwell Street Exeter EX4 6NN

Session 2: Rubbings and tracing at Exeter Cathedral. We’ll be using wax crayons and pastels to create poetry from words carved into ancient stone. N.B. It costs £7.50 to enter the Cathedral unless you have a Resident’s Card, which is free. (See the bottom of this webpage for application details). We can help you apply for this if you need support, but this MUST be well before the day of the visit.
