From now on, on every first Friday of the month, a different designer or illustrator will lead a workshop as part of a new series, #FridayNightSketch. This November sees the illustrator Erin Aniker kicking off the first workshop dedicated to the art of sketching, inspired by the museum’s impressive permanent collections or recent exhibitions.
The inaugural workshop focuses on themes of home and identity. Starting with a short presentation, participants are invited to pair up, explore the wonders of the Design Museum while drawing and discussing objects relating to your own ideas of home. Erin’s creative practice draws from her dual British and Turkish heritage and experiences of growing up in London, bringing her design expertise to the participants sketches.
With all drawing abilities are welcome and generously sponsored by Moo, the first 100 people to sign up for the evening will receive complimentary sketching products. You can book your free tickets here.
