On Sunday the 23rd of April, Dublin Sketchers are going to the Experience Japan Festival which is happening in the beautiful surrounds of Farmleigh in Phoenix Park.
There is a shuttle bus that goes from Parkgate Street (the main entrance to the park, stop 7078) and leaves you at the festival.
The starting point is at 2 pm besides the Martial Arts Stage located in the middle of the Festival Area. Here is a map of the Festival: Experience Japan map.
If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone who looks like a sketcher at 2 pm, just choose something to draw and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello. New people come along almost every week so don't be shy about introducing yourself. It's a nice friendly gathering and you'll get to know us over coffee from 4 pm. Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.
From 4 pm we'll gather for coffee at the Nancy Hands Pub & Restaurant www.nancyhands.ie (it's very close to the Phoenix Park’s main entrance, on Parkgate street). We have tables booked for Dublin sketchers there. A bunch of people who look like Sketchers will magically appear.
Hope to see you there!
