What you'll do

We will meet in the heart of Whitby old own, and do a half hour exploration round the Whitby “Yards” and the wealth of stepped paths (steep!) peppered with a little local history - (an easier route may be taken if the group is not happy with steps). I will suggest a location where we can stop and sketch with views over the town and/or the harbour. We'll work in a baby sketchbook with a selection of materials including pens, pencils and watercolour paints. At the end you will keep you little book to help remember your visit. I may give a short demonstration if necessary, and also have some drawing aids up my sleeve in case you are a little rusty. It's all about the enjoyment, not the end product!! During the session I can get take out refreshments from a local cafe, and can point you in the direction of some good eateries if needed afterwards! All materials and equipment provided. (I have a inclement weather sketching location up my sleeve)

Hilary

I have been practising as a professional painter for 30 years. I absolutely love to sketch on location, and I am well travelled with my sketchbook. I enjoy running workshops and passing on my enthusiasm for sketching outdoors - its a wonderful way to imprint memories of a place you have visited. I am happy to schedule alternative dates for groups of 4 - 6 people. Just message me through this page and I can add a date to my calendar to suit us all.

What's included

Equipment
All sketching equipment and good quality materials will be provided. You may use your own if you prefer.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests ages 12 and up can attend. No experience is necessary. I can provide easier alternatives if your drawing skills are a little rusty.

What to bring

If the weatther is cool then warm wind-proof clothing will be needed. A wind proof jacket is advisable even in the summer as the sea breezes can be very cooling. If sunny you will need sun protection

More tips

We may be walking on uneven steps, sometimes slippery - please wear suitable footwear (easier routes are an option if the group is not able to do steps). Paints/pens may stain if spilled. Wet weather locations are available.
