Sumi Ink Club at Firstsite

Andy Gibbs, Robert Lock & Liz Spalding


Lewis Gardens, High Street
Colchester, CO1 1JH
Drop-in, no booking required

Sumi Ink Club is non-hierarchical: all ages, all humans, and all styles! Everyone is invited to come along and create a community mural that will evolve and grow throughout the day.

Bring yourselves, bring your friends, bring your grandparents and come draw with us. No artistic experience necessary – anyone can doodle!

Established in 2005 by Los Angeles-based artists Sarah Rara and Luke Fischbeck, Sumi Ink Club produces collaborative community drawings and murals, organised by anyone at any time.

Sumi Ink Club follows these basic guidelines:

– Free and open to the public of all ages
– Everyone uses the same materials (brushes and ink, or equivalent)
– Everyone works on the same drawing surface
– Anyone can add to anyone else’s drawing
– Move around the drawing, don’t get stuck in one spot!

This event takes place as part of Essex Book Festival’s PLACE weekend in Colchester, Saturday 4 & Sunday 5 March, and is part of Firstsite’s Family Learning programme.
