Sketchbooks Are Dead

Sketchbook Exhibition & Interactive Life Drawing experience hits The Russet.

The first of our sketchbook events, in partnership with ToandTo, is an opportunity for people to connect through art, food, drink and interactive life drawing. Join us to experience our inspired sketchbook exhibition, participate in interactive life drawing over some food and drink with fellow attendees.

There's 3 stages to this experience -

Stage One: Get inspired by our exhibition of captivating sketchbooks on display

Stage Two: Draw and be Drawn - Almost like life drawing but better. Each individual will sit across someone and get the opportunity to draw and build a conversation with them for a limited amount of time. Once the time is up you move on to start a new conversation and drawing.

Stage Three: The sketchbooks will be available to take away when filled up as a reminder of who you connected with and how the night was.

ToandTo was established in 2014 with the mission of advocating the creative community. We started our journey hosting a series of talks from 2014-2015. Providing creative freelancers with the business knowledge to be able to continue pursuing their passion and make a living from it.
