Drink and Draw @ Make Hamilton

6 October @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Come and join our relaxed life drawing session with a complimentary glass of wine and cheese board in Make Hamilton Café

If you enjoy doodling and sketching and want the chance to do some life drawing in a friendly relaxed atmosphere, then come and check out our monthly class at Make Hamilton Square.

The sessions take place in our beautiful, cosy café and include a cheeseboard and glass of wine. For those of you who are new to life drawing and maybe feeling a tad awkward or nervous, having a complimentary glass of wine will help!

The cheeseboard will be served during the break so please let us know if you have any dietary requirements and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

This class is for anyone aged 16 or over, whether you’re a regular at life drawing classes or you can barely hold a pencil, everyone is welcome. This is an untaught session to come and practise .

Please bring whichever materials you feel comfortable working with, from some charcoal to a biro, a small sketch pad to A3 sheets of paper. There will be a limited amount of drawing board and materials available on a first come first serve basis.

This session is a chilled out place to have a go if you haven’t drawn before and also a perfect opportunity for the more experienced artists to practise.

You are encouraged to come from 6:15pm to chat and find a place. There will be a 20 minute break in the middle to finish off the fromage and get your complimentary glass of wine.

To make our model feel as comfortable as possible we would ask you to follow standard life drawing etiquette and talk quietly.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Feel free to get in touch with the Make CIC office at 0151 601 8665 or email hello@makecic.org

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

If you find that you cannot attend then you are welcome to pass your place on to a friend who may find it useful. Please let the organiser know if you need to do this. Alternatively tickets can be transferred to a future event up to 7 days before the event.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

A register will be taken at the workshop, it isn’t necessary to print your ticket.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn’t match the attendee. Is that okay?

Please bring along a print out of your ticket if the registration does not match the attendee, or contact hello@makecic.org to have them change the ticket so it contains your name.

Can I get a refund for my ticket?

Refunds are available up to 7 days before the event.

Refunds will be offered in the event of the event being cancelled, alternative dates will be offered if appropriate.

If for any reason you find you are unable to attend then please get in touch and a refund can be offered up to 7 days before the workshop. After this date we can only offer a refund if your space is able to be filled.

This is because we pay our practitioners fair wages for their work- giving refunds on last minute cancellations would mean that practitioners would not be paid for the preparation they have put into their classes.
