Hillary Arnold Baker has contacted Father Oliver at Douai Abbey who has confirmed we can have a day sketching there on Saturday 18th January 2014 - Thanks Hillary for organising this!
Meet for a day sketching at Douai Abbey near Woolhampton - www.douaiabbey.org.uk
Berkshire, RG7 5TQ
We will meet in the morning there and find where can we go and sketch in the grounds and Abbey.
It is very important that we respect their prayer time in the church - they have Midday prayer between 12:45 and 13:05 (you can join them in prayer if you wish).
We are able to use the Guest Refectory to have our packed lunch and drinks (bring some thermos flasks) at around lunchtime where I suggest we meet to show each other what we have done so far.
Remember to bring:
- your Cover to Cover sketchbook or collect it on the day (by arrangement with Isabel Carmona)
- your own materials (but see list above for restrictions)
- packed lunch and drink
You are welcome to bring friends and family along but each person is responsible for themselves.
- if you are coming as it would be good to give them an idea of numbers and also
- if you are willing to drive and give others a lift so that we can minimise the numbers of cars going.
