The venue for this Sunday 6th December is a bit different but should hopefully provide some interesting options. There's an antiques and collectors fair in Dun Laoghaire which we thought would make interesting sketching. It's in a beautiful hotel, lots of stalls with antiques, collectables, artefacts and bits and pieces, as well as people milling about. If the weather is fine, you can always venture out into Dun La La itself.
Meet at 1pm at the entrance to the Royal Marine hotel weilding a sketch pad (hotel is off Marine Road, on the left as you walk away from the sea, go past Pavilion Theatre and it's tucked in behind the shops on the left). Nearest DART is Dun Laoghaire.
Afterwards we will meet up in Hughes and Hughes book shop on Marine Road at 3pm, in the upstairs coffee shop for a natter.
Jessica will try to get some free tickets to the Fair, if not we may have to pay €3.50 but all of the admission charge will be donated to Dun Laoghaire Lifeboat.
With over 40 dealers exhibiting and selling a wide range of antiques and collectors items there's plenty for all tastes, including lots of beautiful items as Christmas gifts or to decorate the Christmas table.
