London! Ok, time to get together!

It's been ages since we all got together... I suggest a drawing day at Kew Gardens in September. I'm free all weekdays (unfortunately working weekends again). They're open 9.30-5.30 right now (post-Sept 5th hours). http://www.rbgkew.org.uk/

Re: London! Ok, time to get together!

I'd be keen to do this - and have been meaning to go to Kew anyway - but October might suit me better than September.

Re: London! Ok, time to get together!

Yep, whenever! October is VERY busy for me (two end of year exams for Open Univ and then holiday to Berlin on the 21st), but a day away from the books would be great!

Hmm... wonder where everyone else is.... Ali? Jez? Dave? helloooooooo????

Re: London! Ok, time to get together!

Anyone fancy a trip to Oxford sometime? I'd like to join in one of these (if you don't mind a newbie crashing your party!), but might not be able to make it to London mid-week.

Re: London! Ok, time to get together!

Oxford sounds good too - I'm trying to remember the last time I was there and I think we might be talking a very long time!

If this starts to take off and you get round to discussing dates etc do PM me - I'm trying to remember to look every so often but am not being too successful!

Hi - I'm up for any meeting - my time's fairly flexible, so suggest what suits, and chances are I'll be in on it

Re: London! Ok, time to get together!

I'm currently drastically short of contracts, so could do weekdays some time over the next few weeks - either late Sept or Oct are fine for me. Of course that could all change in a moment if something comes up workwise.

Re: London! Ok, time to get together!

If you'd like to do this with the Toynbee Art Club, we discussed a visit to Kew only a week ago - our treasurer, Richard, is a "friend of Kew", and would get us all in for free. If you want to join us ( or we join you?) contact the Toynbee Art Club. We are already getting together for plein air painting on a regular basis, and anyone is more than welcome to come along and paint with us - at present we meet up on Friday afternoons ( 2pm) at the roundabout on the corner of globe road and old ford road at victoria park (hackney) is where we meet up - we then go down to paint along the regents canal, and also in the park itself. Check to website to see if there are any changes, or call beforehand - my number is 07957485365 or 02077090841

-Evan.

Re: London! Ok, time to get together!

Evan - your group sounds great! I might be tempted to come over to Hackney one day... would 'guests' be welcome?

I'm afraid I broke down and went to Kew last week on my own. It was FABULOUS! The glass exhibition is truely amazing. I'm really stressed at the moment (doing freelance design work that's essentially fulltime, studying for 2 final exams at uni, and preparing for an exhibition) and just had to escape on day. If anyone's interested the cycle path from Putney Bridge to Kew along the river is lovely - you're offroad in the trees the whole way.

Tina.

Re: London! Ok, time to get together!

Yes Tina, Toynbee is open to all and sundry, no pre-booking needed either. Just turn up. Wetcanvasers are most welcome.
If we get to the point where there are too many people trying to get in to our sessions, we will either reimpose our membership/joining fee, or just start to put on extra sessions. Probably the latter.
So yes, feel free to turn up. I think there are others who come in from West London as well.
Just check the website
www.toynbeehallartclub.org
before heading over to see if we're meeting on the Sunday you want to come along...should be no problems at all. For five quid, you get a model, plus tea coffee and biscuits. ....

Evan.

Re: London! Ok, time to get together!

We had a productive plein air painting sesssion tonight - we met up at 2pm along the regents park Canal, you'd have seen us if you looked over the parapet of the Old Ford Road where it crosses the Canal, near the junction with Sewardstone road. We painted until dark.

If you want to join us, we will be there next week at 2pm, meeting up along the canal in the same location, next to the lock, exactly as described above. (If you look at an A-Z streetmap, you can see the lock is shown on the canal)

So, if you want to paint outdoors, or draw outdoors, please come along. There were four of us today.
Evan.
