Evening

Polly will show you how to break down the structure of a building and re-capture it on a beautiful illustrated section of London in your own style. You'll learn some nifty drawing techniques and will leave having created a wonderful map with up to 3 London landmarks for yourself or to give as a gift. It's BYOB, with tea / coffee being provided if your prefer. No experience is required, but an interest in drawing is ideal!

Polly Crossman is a London-based illustrator who works with ink, pencil and watercolour to create hand-drawn illustrations of all kinds. From bespoke wedding stationery and maps, to one-off gifts and greetings cards (and everything in between!) – you name it, she’ll draw and paint it! M.Y.O are very excited to have her for this session (she also teaches our modern calligraphy for beginners and watercolour flower painting classes - which have got incredible feedback). Check her out on Insta @PollyCrossman also :).

Capacity is limited, to ensure you feel nice, relaxed and get enough guidance. Ahhhhh lovely. Please note that this class does not involve hand holding throughout the class as it's aimed at adults. We provide the environment for you to relax and express / explore your creative side, with Polly (a professional illustrator / calligrapher) being on hand to guide you and answer any questions throughout. Your creative muscles will be streched as you will be practicing with the aim of being confident and able enough to draw your own piece of art. If you want / need 1-to-1 guidance for 2.5 hours, this is not the class for you. If you want to relax and explore your creative side in a beautiful studio whilst learning some new creative skills, it is.

Really enjoyable class in a very creative environment! The studio was absolutely lovely, with a rainbow of inspiration. Polly was a great teacher with a good balance between whole group teaching, one to one guidance. She created a relaxing atmosphere and I definitely feel I can take my learning to make more maps.

The class was great, a really entertaining course with very useful tips. The instructor was really nice and knew very well what she was talking about. M.Y.O is an amazing studio where everything screams hand made and crafts. Will definitely come again.

This was a fun and unusual class. As it is a small group, there is lots of individual attention and Polly is a great teacher! You do need some sort of basic drawing skills though - I was out of practice but it was fine. I think someone with no experience of drawing could struggle a little.

We had a great time in a lovely venue, and left with a surprising impressive piece of art (I generally consider myself to have no artistic skills whatsoever!). A fun evening - recommended.

The teacher is very credible but she was very helpful during the class. But I wish she has gone through more of the tips and techniques as most of the time we were left drawing on our own.

About your host, M.Y.O (Make Your Own)

M.Y.O ('Make Your Own) has arts & crafts studios for grown ups, with colourful studios in Borough and Peckham Levels. We provide a relaxed and fun space for you to learn new things, be creative and make something to be proud of. Think of M.Y.O as an art gym for your creative muscles! We're BYOB too!

You can explore our range of creative classes; from painting (paper, tiles or ceramics), tassel earrings and chalkboard lettering, to life drawing, handmade ceramics, lino printing, calligraphy, illustration, watercolour flower painting, decoupage, t-shirt / tote bag design and lots more! You can just book creative time in the studio to use the equipment and materials to try different things or you can book into more guided sessions. Materials and guidance are of course included. We do on-site and off-site sessions too. You'll also enjoy the proven mindfulness benefits of getting your creative fix, whilst making something with your hands.

We can't wait to get creative with you!

If you have any questions, please contact me using the 'contact host' button on the website page.
