Join us for a sketchcrawl in London, through the City of Sir Christopher Wren, architect of St. Paul’s Cathedral and so many other churches and buildings in the years following the Great Fire of London, 1666. Hey, that was 350 years ago!
DATE: Sunday July 24, 2016
START: 10:30am, in front of St. Paul's Cathedral (Ludgate Hill/St. Paul's Churchyard, by the Queen Anne statue)
FINISH: 4:00pm, next to the Monument to the Great Fire (Fish St Hill, off King William St, by Monument tube)
Starting by the steps of St.Paul’s Cathedral, and finishing up at Wren’s Monument to the Great Fire, we will explore the city in
groups or individually as you prefer, looking for the London built by
Wren after the Great Fire.
This sketchcrawl is FREE and open to anyone of any age who likes to
sketch and explore. I will provide Pete-drawn maps and some handy historical info. All you need
is something to draw with and something to draw on! Large periwig and quill not necessary...
This is a reversed re-run (or “re-Wren”) of the 2014 Sketching Wren’s City
event, which was a lot of fun. As a group, we managed to draw nearly all of the Wren churches in the City - let's do the rest this time around! I’ll post a reminder closer to the event itself,
and you can sign up for the sketchcrawl on Facebook if you like: https://www.facebook.com/events/265601303793686/
It will be the weekend before
the International Urban Sketching Symposium in Manchester. Don't forget to join London's Urban Sketchers on the day before (Saturday July 23)
at the sketchcrawl around Trafalgar Square – should be lots of sketching fun!
See you on the streets of London!
