Melanie Chadwick Sketchbook Workshops

Join our Festival sketchbook workshop, led by local artist Melanie Chadwick, to capture your own, unique memories of the Food Festival.

You’ll be sketching in and around the village of Porthleven during the Food Festival. Porthleven is a picturesque harbour village situated on the Cornish coast. It has stunning seaviews, beautiful coastline and fascinating old buildings with a rich fishing history. The addition of the Festival brings lots of new visual inspiration from food to flags and drinks to dancing.

In this workshop Melanie will lead you through the village giving time to observe and sketch from life whilst also giving you advice and guidance on how to best capture your subjects.

She will also give a brief overview of keeping a sketchbook and ideas for how to build it into a daily habit.

When? Friday (April 26th) workshops begin at 10am, 1pm and 3.30pm and run for 2 hrs.
5 people per workshop.

Where?: Sets off from 1 Chapel Terrace, Porthleven, Cornwall TR13 9HS.
