Sketchbook Meetup (Free!)

Bring your sketchbook & mingle with creatives!

Over 20 people have attended this class


Do you ever want to know what's inside people's sketchbooks, especially the work they don't post online? Or maybe you'd like to meet some new arty friends?

Grab your sketchbook and bring a friend along to the Open Sketchbook Meetup! You'll be able to check out what your fellow creatives are working on that they may not be posting online, meet some new art lovin' peeps and nom on some brunch snacks & coffee whilst you're at it.

The event is free, but a small donation will go a long way in funding this meetup and future ones to come!

Hope to see you there :)

This meetup is hosted by Vanessa from Creator's Handbook. If you have any queries about the event or would like to be involved, please email Vanessa at hello@creatorshandbook.co

In a room where I felt like i was surrounded by people more talented than me, I felt welcome. In a group where everyone had incredible skills in illustration, I felt inspired. And at a table of likeminded creatives just trying to bravely show their art, I felt included. Thank you so much for organising this meet up, I cannot wait for the next one.

A fun little gathering of friendly creatives. Being a freelancer it's refreshing being able to connect with other talented designers in a casual environment, while flipping through everyone's amazing sketchbooks and portfolios. Definitely inspiring me to draw more often. Looking forward to the next one!
