Throughout 2019, we are offering reduced entry of £2 on the first Sunday of the month, also know as Sketchbook Sunday . But how do you get entry for £2? It’s simple, on the first Sunday of the month, bring your sketchbook with you when you visit us and show it to reception in the museum shop/ visitor information centre. What is Sketchbook Sunday? Sketchbook Sunday is part of a wider project in collaboration with Shropshire Libraries Service. Sketchbooks and journals are usually private; a place to make mistakes, work out ideas. We are very grateful to those who have already agreed to share their work in this form, with the county. For more information about the wider project, click here. Useful information – Those who present a sketchbook at the museum front desk on the 1st Sunday on the month gain a reduced entry price. £2 for adult and seniors, (no reduction in child tickets) – Anyone who wishes to add to the communal sketchbooks dotted around the galleries are very welcome to. There’ll be a few art materials provided. Creatives are very welcome to work into their own sketchbooks; being inspired by the building, collection and other visitors – The Hashtag for the those who wish to share their work produced during Sketchbook Sundays is #ShrewsSketchBookSundays – Occasionally they’ll be loose optional themes to work to, the themes will be advertised within the communal sketchbooks and/or social media, and also to the sketchbook library e mailing list subscribers.
