About this Event

Over the course of the event, you'll be learning about the lives of incredible women in the archives of the Centre for Research Collections at the University of Edinburgh, while putting your creative side to use to produce awesome new artwork.

The event is designed to create a relaxed learning environment, where you'll get a chance to portray the work of pioneering women through a series of fun, fast-paced challenges that will help you flex your sketching muscles and experiment with daring colour-combinations, silly caricatures and speedy doodles.

No drawing experience is necessary to join us, and all students and staff are welcome. Materials will be provided, but please do feel free to bring your own coloured pencils or felt-tip pens if you wish.


This is a free event. However, places are limited so advance booking is essential.

If you've booked a ticket but can't make it to the event, please let us know and we can allocate your ticket to someone on the waiting list.
