Sketchbook Stroll

On this relaxed guided stroll, you will join local artists from Art Branches to explore the tranquil riverside of the River Lark at West Stow Country Park. Along the way you will spot interesting patterns and views found in nature. Using materials including charcoal and pencils, you will playfully experiment with mark making to capture the sense of place in a sketchbook as you explore.

You do not require any previous art experience to join. This walk is suitable for all levels and will be a fun opportunity for creativity in a beautiful Brecks landscape.
