with Becca Smith

Join Becca Smith for a stranger-than-life drawing experience in the dark streets of Macclesfield – combining light, shadows, and stories from the past that still haunt us…

Walking together down cobbled streets and under bridges, we’ll meet a number of female characters from Macclesfield’s past who still dwell in the town’s collective memory and imagination. With all drawing materials provided, plus guidance from Becca, you’ll make atmospheric pieces of artwork depicting these lantern-lit and shadowy women, listen to their stories and create your own.

No formal drawing skills are needed, you’ll surprise yourself! However, artists are also very welcome. 

Although the characters we’ll meet may be a little unnerving to some, there are no adult themes or mentions of violence.

Please let us know of an accessibility requirements you have, and we’ll do our best to accommodate you. All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Also, please dress warmly, wear sensible footwear and bring gloves in which you can draw and a bag for carrying your work.
