All you need

The weather's looking good for tomorrow and I'm busy preparing for my "Walk with your sketchbook" day workshop that will take us out for a day of walking and sketching or writing in the Sussex countryside.

My pile of materials is growing by the minute, despite advising everyone to bring only light kit. I will listen to my own advice and throw a few things out of the bag. All you need are simple sketching or writing materials and a picnic lunch.

We'll be spending the day at Seaford Head and Hope Gap, which are 2 of the most dramatic locations in Sussex, with huge chalk cliffs, wild beaches, downland slopes, shingle beaches, a river estuary, tidal creeks, surrounding wetlands and field margins. And we'll be walking and working outdoors with sketchbooks under huge skies, filling our pages with ideas and sketches.

Love wild places? Want to walk to stunning locations to sketch or write? Want to be inspired by nature? Need a creative spark? Whatever your level or area of interest, all are welcome, beginner and experienced artists, writers, scribblers, sketchers, nature lovers and anyone who has always wanted to try writing or sketching and or would like to try out new ideas.

There's still time to book a place if you would like to join us tomorrow. (Please book before I hit the road at 9am tomorrow morning!!) All you need is a sketchbook and pen and a picnic lunch. You can read all the details about this and future walks and workshops on my website. And you can book your place here.
