Refurbished Cliffe Castle Drawing Sketchers
Bradford Council’s parks service, in partnership with the Cliffe Castle Park Conservation Group, is staging a series of free Sketchwalks around the refurbished Victorian grounds and glasshouses.
The Sketchwalk idea has been developed by Deborah Rehmat, whose sketching project `Drawing the Work` followed the restoration of the park, and Louise Garrett an experienced local Urban Sketcher.The walks are aimed at everyone from absolute beginners to seasoned sketchers with an ethos of encouragement and support. Each session will start at 10.30am at the Glasshouse with a short practice exercise and demonstration.
Then, subject to the weather, a walk to the selected area of the park to try out location sketching - so wear suitable clothing. Basic materials will also be provided on the day.
Bradford Council Executive Member for Environment, Sport and Culture, Sarah Ferriby, said: “This is a great way to make the most of the marvellous landscape of the park and to appreciate the environment created by the recent restoration.”
The walks are being split into two groups of sessions, to allow for extra techniques and skills to be developed. These are:
Wednesday 28 February & Wednesday 14 March (10.30 until 12.30)
Wednesday 16 May & Wednesday 30 May (10:30 until 12.30)
