Christmas at Drawing Projects UK

Christmas will soon be here - and our holiday opening times are in place for Drawing Projects UK and Studio Cafe. In the run up to Christmas we will be open from 10am to 4pm from Thursday to Saturday only. We will then close until 5 January 2017.

We hope this will give you ample opportunity to visit the current exhibition of Anita Taylor's drawings and to view the exceptional display of OPjects by Kim Jin Eui, amongst the collectables in stock, before Christmas. If you would like to view the exhibitions by appointment, book a meeting room and/or the cafe, or view our workspaces please do contact us.  We will be busy behind the scenes preparing for the next season of Drawing Sessions, Drawing Discussions and Open To Draw programmes. 

In January we will also launch our Second Wednesdays, live music with jazz saxophonist Nick Sorensen; creative writing workshops; and more. We will also be continuing our collaboration with Trowbridge Arts for Exploring Drawing, and our new season of Life Drawing Sessions will start from w/c 23 January 2017.

Our Spring programmes will be published soon. In the meantime, a huge thank you to all our supporters in 2016. We hope to see you again soon. 

And we wish everyone a happy holiday, if we don't see you before!
