Here's a lovely embroidery by Kathy Olsson made from a drawing from the secret destination trip to Lithuania last month. Great to see developmental work from a working drawing. Might just have to do a specific embroidery trip in the future.. maybe Spain for this one. Watch this space!
I’m organising a drawing afternoon in Nottingham on the 23rd February. We meet at 2pm. at Cobden Chambers if the weather is ok or in the Malt Cross if it’s cold and wet. Message me if you want to join us!
We're just back from out secret destination trip to... Lithuania!
We visited Kaunas and beautiful Vilnius, the capital. I was blessed with a fantastic group of guests, who were drawing with energy and enthusiasm from the minute we boarded the flight to the moment we touched down at Stansted. The quality of drawing on this trip was exceptional.
We tramped around in the snow, making work, visiting museums, drinking lots of coffee, and we had a magical train journey through an enchanted winter wonderland between our two destinations. It was straight out of a fairytale. Magical.
We had a session of one to one tutorials on the last afternoon and finished off with a few beers and hot wine. What a brilliant story we made! Thanks to all x
This is our first carbon balancing certificate with the World Land Trust. This represents 5 return flights to Malaga from Stansted. All our future flights will be balanced.. Drawing Escapes is carbon neutral :) 🌺 🦎 🐬 🐝 ☘️ 🌴 😎
I've updated the website throughout and revised some of the dates and availability as 2 of our guests for next year have moved from the May to the September Spain trip.
Best thing though, is that it's snow is landing on our landing page!!
These drawings by Frank Reed are awesome. Frank's been on 3 trips with us and these from Bali are simply stunning! They're layered with cut-aways so images behind are revealed and become part of the images in front. Very cool!
Here's a short video about the 2018 drawing holiday in Bali. Hope you enjoy!
I've just gone through all my Facebook pages and sorted them into one. Over the years the pages have grown organically from the original drawing in Spain page to a situation where every trip had its own. So now, we just have the one Drawing Escapes page that will have all the news for all the trips... phew! You will find it here https://www.facebook.com/drawingescapespage/ Please follow for all the news and availability on future drawing holidays.
Here are a few images from the trip to Berlin last week by Eleanor Marshman, Catherine Ward, Jane West, Alan Baines and Shannon Ward. Video coming soon.
