This coming Saturday, Feb. 11th will be a busy day for everyone who wants to get out there and do some sketching!

  • Whittington Castle, Whittington

Anyone who wants to is welcome to meet up at Whittington Castle from 10:30am to do some sketching. Bring your drawing/painting equipment and some warm clothing in case it turns cold. There are two pubs near the castle – The White Lion and The Old Boot, and the Penrhos Arms is around the corner – plus a newsagents (and a chippy, I think?) so there are plenty of places for hot drinks and lunch, or bring sandwiches and a flask of tea if you prefer.

  • Radio Cafe, Oswestry

And if you aren’t all sketched out by the evening, Radio Cafe on Bailey St. in Oswestry is open in the evening. Anyone who’s interested can meet us there after 6pm for a chance for some indoor sketching and drawing. The cafe serves excellent tapas, plus there’s wine, cocktails and coffees on the drinks menu. A small group of us met up there two weeks ago and had a really nice evening – do join us if you’re looking for something to do in Oswestry on Saturday evening.
