If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone at your arrival, just choose something to sketch and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello. It's a friendly crowd who you’ll get to know when we get together at 4pm. Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.

Rather than meeting in a pub or coffee shop, we'll gather outdoors to catch up and check out each other's work. At 4pm, we'll meet towards the top of Smithfield, near the Cobblestone pub.  In case of rain, there are plenty of cafés nearby. Please keep in mind current government guidelines on Covid.
If you would like your sketch to be added to the website, email it to or post it to the Dublin Sketchers Social WhatsApp group if you are on that. Please edit your image so that it is low res and properly oriented for posting to the website. If you're on Instagram, use #dublinsketchers #urbansketchers.  
See you there!

If you  haven't signed the petition to save the Cobblestone Pub, you probably still can, and if you want to lodge a planning objection, today's the deadline! More information here.
