SketchCrawl North has been meeting every month since I became a correspondent in 2010 but, though we have always thought of ourselves as part of the Urban Sketchers movement, we have never been officially affiliated. Until now - hurrah! We just changed our name and re-opened as a new Urban Sketchers group:
Actually, although we are based in Yorkshire, we also represent people in the neighbouring Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Lancashire, and we travel all over our part of England on SketchCrawls: we like to get out and about on sketching adventures, discovering new communities to sketch together.
We also enjoy thinking up unusual sketching events like our Mad Hatter's Tea Party, our Tour de Sketch and our SketchJam musical evenings.
So, if you live in our part of the world, or ever find yourself travelling through, get in touch so you can come and and play with us in beautiful Yorkshire. We have had visits from both Liz Steel and Yves Damin.
Otherwise, see you in Paraty!
