A year ago I was outside Chatterley and Whitfield colliery drawing with the Stoke Urban Sketchers.

This year Stoke-on-Trent is hosting the United Kingdom Urban Sketchers annual festival from 7th to 9th June 2019! There may be a lot if sketchers descending on the city.

There is a lot of industrial archaeology and architecture here so I think people will enjoy it. Hopefully I will be able to get involved in it.

 

There are lots of places in Stoke-on-Trent and in the surrounding countryside which are worth drawing. I would love people to come here and fall in love with this city.

Little Moreton hall

Tudor Little Moreton Hall. North of Stoke-on-Trent on the A34. It’s owned by the National Trust. Surrounded by a moat. It is beautiful and quirky. The long gallery was added slightly later than when the hall was built. It’s really worth a visit. There are also plant sales and a cafe.
