International Women's Day Sketchathon

Fri 08 March 2019 12:30-16:00

Centre for Research Collections, Main Library


This International Women's Day, listen to inspiring stories of trailblazing women and sketch your heart out with fun challenges and games!


Over the course of the event, you'll be learning about the lives of incredible women in the archives of the Centre for Research Collections at the University of Edinburgh, while putting your creative side to use to produce awesome new artwork.


The event is designed to create a relaxed learning environment, where you'll get a change to portray the work of pioneering women through a series of fun, fast-paced challenges that will help you flex your sketching muscles and experiment with daring colour-combinations, silly caricatures and speedy doodles.


No drawing experience is necessary to join us, and all students and staff are welcome. Materials will be provided, but please do feel free to bring your own coloured pencils or felt-tip pens if you wish.


This is a free event. However, places are limited so advance booking via Eventbrite is essential.
