About the Event

Urban Sketching is a free, social activity enjoyed by peole all around the world & we are bringing it to Huddersfield! Why? For many reasons but here are our favourites:

  • Because Huddersfield possesses an abundance of impressive, characterful & historic architecture which is interesting to draw
  • Because we believe that drawing is REALLY good for us & drawing in our town centre, as a group could help promote that
  • Because our town-centre needs our love & what better way to show that than by gathering to draw it?

How does it work?

Everyone brings their own drawing equipment - something to draw on & something to draw with. There are no rules about materials - use whatever you like! No materials provided.

We meet in Huddersfield & draw at a chosen location in the town centre - where everyone feels safe, comfortable & is happy to draw.

We all draw! This is not a tutored event. You draw what you see, your way.

Then we might move on & find another location.

At the end you'll be invited to join us at a cafe to take a look at each others drawings & exchange supportive feedback. No one will say what you've done is wrong. No one will say "you can't draw". No one will force you to share your work.

What will we draw?

We will look at the environment around us & each person will be free to choose what they draw & how - whether that is people, buildings or nature.

What if it chucks it down?

We've got our eye on a few covered but outdoor locations around the town centre that we will use incase of rain

What do I need to do?

Book a ticket to help us monitor numbers

Check a forecast on the day & dress appropriately

Meet at Harold Wilson, outside Huddersfield Train Station on the date & time shown & be prepared to draw :-)

Who can I ask?
