Friday, Febraury 16 in the Schoolhouse from 7-9pm.
Buxton National Historic Site & Museum, along with Buxton’s Next Generation, The Thames Art Gallery and Art Space are hosting a “Sip & Sketch”. This will be a fun evening as you discover what hidden talents you have as you sketch a piece of art which depicts what Black History means to you. It could be a picture of your favourite UGRR activist, the North Star, a silhouette of a couple escaping- it’s up to your imagination! There will be a local artist who will describe and demonstrate the various techniques that can be used. You will have a choice of wine from Early Acres, beer from Sons of Kent or punch. Refreshments will be provided by William St Café. Up to a registered maximum of 50 people will be supplied with the materials needed
