” Breathing Spaces” a weekend of Urban Sketching

Graham Thew July 1, 2019

We have just enjoyed Wirral Urban Sketchers’ first three day event!

I worked with Wirral Borough Council, the Birkenhead Park World Heritage Project, and the Borough of Culture team to set up the 3 days of sketching and drawing in and around the park.  I also managed to get support from Cass Art who donated 150 “goody bags” along with larger bags of art materials to use as prizes. We were blessed with perfect weather and across the three days, and  70-80 sketchers enjoyed the company, the challenges, and the contentment that the weekend presented. I didn’t have a great deal of time myself for sketching with all the meeting and greeting but managed a the pictures attached below.  Great fun, definitely an event to build on!
