Create your own sketchbook and unlock a world of creativity


Join us as we celebrate a very special day of free creativity for children and young people as part of Cruinniú na nÓg 2020.

If ever there was a time to keep a sketchbook, now is it! Sketchbooks are an essential tool in your creative toolkit and a portal into your mind. At this free online workshop, we’ll learn to create our own sketchbooks using basic materials. Together, we’ll create sketchbooks with various simple binding techniques. We’ll also explore ways of personalising sketchbooks to make each one unique and an expression of you.

We’ll discuss how to use your sketchbook as a visual diary, as well as techniques in observational drawing. Come away from the workshop with knowledge and confidence to begin making your own sketchbooks for years to come.

The workshop is recommended for ages 6+ but really any age can get involved, all the way up to young adults. The workshop will be posted as a video here on our website on June 13th and you’re free to participate at any time throughout the day that suits you.
