Designed by John Notman in 1857, the first service was held at The Church of the Holy Trinity on March 27, 1859. The large bell tower was added in 1867 under the supervision of George W. Hewitt of Fraser Furness & Hewitt. The church is also known for five stained glass windows designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany.
As the sketching social is casual and open to all abilities, participants may bring any media they choose to sketch. Suggested supplies are a pad of paper and pencils.
We’ll start sketching at 9:45am and enjoy lunch together by noon at a local restaurant. Sketching socials are free to members and non-members alike; however, everyone pays their own way once we arrive at the pub.
