Friday Night Sketch is a brand new, year-long event series that kicks off on the 2nd November 2018 – here’s everything you need to know about the night, the artists, and what to expect. Get your sketchbooks ready…
It’s no secret that, here at MOO, we love all things design. That’s why we decided to partner with our friends over at The Design Museum in London on a series of creative sessions that get you involved with the makers and doers – Friday Night Sketch.
What is Friday night sketch?
Hosted at The Design Museum as part of their late night events programme, Friday Night Sketch is a creative session, taking place on the first first Friday of each month. Each evening is hosted by a different illustrator or artist, and as a guest, you’ll get the chance to meet the designers, tour the museum, and get creative – oh, and did we mention there’s a bar too?
How does it work?
Whether you’re dropping in on the night or have pre-booked tickets, you’ll explore the museum with the artist, sketching architecture and points of interest as you move through the space. In addition to a different creative host, there will also be a different theme for each evening, so it’s a real chance to test your skills and experiment.
What can I expect on the night?
Your sketching task will be inspired by one of The Design Museum’s permanent collections or featured exhibitions. The event aims to encourage total creativity. Whether it’s contemporary design or architecture that you’re into, Friday Night Sketch is about creating art from whatever excites you. The first event theme is Home and Identity.
Introducing our first artist – Erin Aniker
Working as an illustrator based in London, Erin has developed a style that’s caught the attention of plenty of publications – including creative company, It’s Nice That. Erin draws inspiration from her travels, her Turkish/British heritage and from the inclusive community she’s grown up with in her capital home.
What can I expect from The Design Museum?
Housed in a Grade II listed building in London’s High Street Kensington, The Design Museum is an international showcase of all things design – from graphics and product to industrial and fashion. The museum welcomes over 700,000 visitors a year and holds a variety of contemporary exhibitions throughout.
How can I get involved?
Come on in! All of the sessions are completely free and you don’t need to sign up to attend, simply drop by on the night. We will also have 100 pre-bookable tickets available for each month. These will bag you some sketching goodies – provided by MOO – and get you into an exclusive 15 minute workshop with the hosting artist on the night. The opening night is already sold out – but don’t worry – there will be 100 more available for every session, so keep a sharp eye out.
