Welcome to an evening of drawing with a dash of history in the peaceful space of Southwark Cathedral
Artist Suzanne Pink will give a 20 minute workshop on pen, ink and line drawing.
Then our Cathedral Guides will take you for a brief tour of the Cathedral stopping at five places to give you some time to sketch and observe the many different features of the building. Learn about 900 years of Southwark Cathedral’s architecture from the nave to the retrochoir and discover the stories about the many rebuilds, the occasional fire, numerous repairs and several restorations that have shaped the building throughout the ages.
After the tour, the cathedral space is yours to enjoy. This is a chance to do a longer sketch, share work or ask for tips from our artist Suzanne.
