Trinity Buoy Wharf Sunday 22 June 12:45 – 4:00


Trinity Buoy Wharf is a vibrant mix of futurism and rare industrial history.  The Thameside location where all the buoys and markers for the River Thames were once made and repaired, it is now home of container city; an installation of shipping containers; repurposed into artists’ studios, offices and a riverside café. It is also the location of the lighthouse (and it is still here) where Victorian scientist Michael Faraday, experimented with the conduction of electricity in 1863.

The ENO make all their props there, the Princes Drawing School have their Foundation Year Art School there. Add to this the Parkour Academy and the 40’s food joint FatBoy’s Diner and the fleet of Thames Clippers, based here – at one of London’s longest piers, stunning views of the river and the Millennium dome and you have a sketchers dream location. We owe a huge thanks to John Burton and the staff at TBW for offering us this unique opportunity to sketch at the site.

Gather for a swift tour of the site at 12:45 then we sketch from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. If you are new to Sketchmob make sure to register now and you will be invited to all future events. Then you just pitch up with a sketchbook. All free, all welcome
