Sketching at Stansted House 7-1-2018

What a wonderful time we had at Stansted House on Sunday morning and yes the time flew by yet again!

Thank you to Fiona and Daniel for organising these events and giving us the opportunity to draw/sketch/paint in such a lovely rich environment. 

This time we were shown around the ‘downstairs’ rooms and the only difficulties being what to draw and not getting too distracted!  I ended up in the Still room where in the corner stood a wooden clothes horse with beautiful, delicate little cotton dresses and a pair of lace trimmed bloomers hung over the top. The images are copies of my drawing for the morning.


There was a great atmosphere and looking round people seemed really inspired by the surroundings.  Drawing takes practise and these opportunities give artists a chance to do just that but not just that they offer the chance to share and talk about their experiences, to learn from each other.

If you haven’t already, give it a go, I’d thoroughly recommend it.

Sketching at Stansted House

Last month a group of us went along to Standsted House for the monthly sketching event they are offering at the moment.  I think I can safely say we all had a thoroughly enjoyable morning. 


The next event takes place this Sunday 7th January 10am-1pm.  Information including details on how to book can be found at 


If you fancy getting in some drawing practice, in a beautiful setting, exclusively opened for those attending the event, I’d really recommend it.  The time flys by!
