I run adult and children’s illustration workshops in south east London and can tailor sessions to the needs of the group. Workshop attendees enjoy working with a range of materials, including pen and ink, watercolour, chalk, a wide selection of pencils and even gel pens! Sessions are fun, friendly and informal and have proven to be relaxing and inspiring…see testimonials below.

Illustration workshops are a great way of encouraging risk-taking and experimentation in an unpressured and supportive setting. Drawing utilises and develops a wide range of skills, including problem solving, fine motor skills and concentration…it builds confidence and it’s fun!

Please contact me for further details about upcoming sessions, or to book a bespoke workshop.


Praise for Suzanne Pink illustration workshops:

‘I just wanted to thank you, I’ve just had my mum on the phone telling me what a wonderful time she had this afternoon! Thank you for being so hospitable, mum loved the cake and tea, and she loved the fact that you’d put so much thought into every little detail. She’s already planning to return and wondering who else she can bring. Thank you for giving her a wonderful afternoon and earning me lots of daughter brownie points!’
