Service Description

Bring along your playlist, relax and sketch Friday afternoons away. Make your own sketchbook and fill it with weekly tasks or your own project in the company of illustrator, bookbinder and tutor Sally Delahooke. Expect to experiment and develop skills in all aspects of drawing, painting and making, using varied materials and techniques. Enjoy opportunities for relevant trips, drawing or painting en plein air or even just finish that art homework with Sally’s support. All activities are student focused, tea, coffee and biscuits are on tap and gossip or earphone “cut out the rest of the world solitude” are positively encouraged. Perfect for high schoolers who love to create. Come solo or with friends. All are welcome. All materials will be provided though we ask that students bring an apron if they don’t want to wear one of our plastic biodegradable ones and a mask for when they are moving around the studio. We take safety seriously so will ensure we follow all the Covid restrictions in place at any given time. We will reduce sharing of equipment wherever possible by providing students with a complete set of brushes, pencils, charcoal etc. for each class. Classes will be kept to a maximum of 10 to reduce risks and staff will wear masks when in the studio. In addition to the tutor there will usually be another member of staff around to help out. Staff have up to date PVG certificates and Clare has a current First Aid certificate. Sessions are up to two hours long: pitch up between 1.30 – 3.30pm, and leave when it suits you, bookable by the block. Any trip travel expenses or entrance fees are additional, plenty of notice will be given and venues to be agreed by club students. Bookings can be made using the online form – sorry it reads like War and Peace but there’s a lot of additional information we require for under 18s and doing it this way saves having to ask you to complete an additional info form.

Cancellation Policy

We hope to avoid cancelling classes or workshops whenever possible but sometimes life happens and it's unavoidable. When we have cancelled you will be offered a refund or the choice of transferring your booking to another class/time. We can't offer refunds if you can't make it to a class or workshop with less than 2 weeks notice but if there are places available on another day we will do our best to fit you in. If you cancel 14 days or more before an event we will refund you if we are able to re-sell your place(s).
