Coming up: Drop In & Draw Craft Night Feb 26th

(Taken from Zomblicity issue 5 by Robin Sandiford and Farcreazy Farid)
When was the last time you drew something?
Whether you're a daily doodler, secret sketcher, passionate pencil perfectionist,  marker pen mad or haven't illustrated a thing since you were at school, this month's Drop In & Draw will get you excited about creating pictures that are flat, 3D & experimental.

We've got FOUR fabulous workshops lined up that will get you expressing your inner and outer artist before the night is out, run by five incredibly inspiring arty folk.

Design a comic strip with Farcreazy Farid

FF aka Lucky graduated in illustration and has been drawing. doodling and scribbling since he was born! He's collaborated on web comics about zombies and runs an illustration company. He'll be giving you top tips on how to create your own comic scene. 

Supersize sketching with Michail Sionis
Michail is a visual merchandiser from Athens. He has always being moved by colors, shapes and forms. After graduating with a degree in Interior Design he entered the world of fashion to work with Burberry and Vivienne Westwood. 
Last month he learnt to knit with us and this month he'll take you on a journey of epic proportions with an interactive group drawing session which culminates in creating 3D models. Check out the amazing cardboard lighting he designed.
Still life studies with Harriet Smith
Everyone at school does still life - some love it, some hate it, but one thing's for sure, a session with Harriet and you'll be well and truely converted! Thankfully if you do enjoy it you can go back as Harriet runs a weekly art class on Mondays at the Rosemary Branch pub up the road. 
Harriet will be introducing you to the wonderful world of sketching and drawing from observation.

Experimental collaging with Libby Vickers and Jmebot
Libby Vickers

James and Libby are both professional illustrators who specialise in colourful, graphicy, experimental work so we're handing over the reigns of our Collage Corner to them...they'll be showing you do to draw using mixed media.

And if that wasn't enough we've got our Knit & Knatter spot, where our knitwit experts will teach anyone who doesn't know how to knit, or needs a refresher, how to work the needles.

Join in any of the above sessions for free or bring along your own projects to work on.

We also have a mini craft market where you can buy handmade goodies. This month we're joined by 
Meko Creations

Meko means soft in Bulgarian and that is what Vasilena's creations are like - small animals, warm hats and scarves or colourful jewellery. 
She learned how to crochet four years ago  from You Tube and has not stop since then. Check out her gorgeous work and she'll also show you how she does it. 
Everyone is welcome to join us, whether it's popping in on your own or with a group of friends. 
Take that person you fancy on a date with a difference, invite work colleagues to get together and do something away from the office or simply turn up to unwind and hang out with  lovely friendly people.

We've got the tunes thanks to our fab DJs Spinning Yarns, a bar all to ourselves and lots of comfy seating too.

It's the perfect way to while away the last Tuesday of February.

Find us at The Hackney Attic (5th floor Hackney Picturehouse) from 7.30pm-11pm, drop in and draw with us anytime you can xx
