Sketchbook challenge

Here we are in 2019.  A small hiatus in the sketchbook over the festive season.  We have been busy with other things..

January/February 2019

“Metamorphosis” – we thought it time for a change.

This challenge provoked some really good ideas, from the changes in insects’ lives, to changing artefacts, communication over the millennia and rocks.

September/October: “Tendrils”

What is a Tendril? – a slender leafless shoot by which some climbing plants cling, or could it be something else??

We’d all been quite busy this month with a very successful Cley exhibition.




We were all busy in July and August finishing our pieces for TOPstitch at Cley so had a break from the challenge.  Now it’s:




let’s get out the purples, pinks and blues..


Here are some of the results:




We were given the choice of two excerpts from poems by Kevin Crossley-Holland:






May/June – “Asparagus”




April/May – “Sound”

How many definitions of “sound” can there be?  We found many different ways to interpret the word this time.



Lots of ideas to work with.



March/April – “Duplicity”

This proved very inspirational for many of us….



and will be taken further on from the sketch books.



Feb/Mar – “Contentment”




Jan/Feb – “Text of your choice”




Dec/Jan – “Underfoot”
