Sketching the hidden history and details of the City of London. First Tuesdays of the month. Whatever the weather.

Have you ever wondered what’s down there? Come. Let’s see. Let’s draw what we find. The aim of these walks is to observe, take note, be present, and experience the history and solitude in the city, behind the city.

Free-walking with a structure. Drawing tuition provided with gentle guidance. Meet people, build creative confidence and have fun. Do something you’ve not done before.

It’s simply about looking and drawing, a process of discovery in an inclusive environment where everyone feels supported. Whether or not you have drawn before or are an experienced hand.

If you have any disability needs, please let me know. We can easily adjust the tour.

BYO Drawing Materials. All you need is pencils, putty rubber and a sharpener, and an A5 or A4 sketch book. Nothing bigger as this is a fast paced walking drawing expedition. At each site we will draw for 15 mins and walk on, with a break for lunch.

£20 per person. 20 Tickets.
