Join artist Luke Adam Hawker for an afternoon of drawing the trees and architecture of Westminster Abbey.

Exploring the space with a sketchbook
In this workshop, you'll embark on a journey of sketching the trees & architecture of Westminster Abbey. Luke will begin with the essentials of measuring up, scale, and mark-making & equipping you with the foundational skills to breathe life into your sketches.

Scaling Up Your Art
Venturing beyond the sketchbook. Delve into larger drawings and explore the realms of scale and detail. Whether you prefer the precision of pen or the expressive strokes of charcoal, the choice is yours.

At the end of the afternoon, we will come together to share our work, our thoughts and our experiences during our time at Westminster Abbey.
