Payday has been and gone but if a stay at the St Pancras Renaissance is still a little out of the picture your ears will probably perk up when we mention the word ‘complimentary’.
Sadly they’re not offering complimentary stays in the £899 a night Grand Staircase Suite but, instead, the chance to brush up your drawing skills at the latest in their series of complimentary masterclasses: urban sketching, held in the MI + ME eatery. We’re not exactly saying that seven years at Architecture school is unnecessary but when you can have a two hour taster for free, inside one of the most beautiful gothic buildings in the city, then it is a pretty attractive alternative. Learn how to create light and space, capture moving figures and establish perspective and composition with your weapon of choice, taught by a professional from the House of Illustration – the UK’s only illustration-dedicated public gallery. The masterclasses will run on three Tuesday’s in July, 6-8pm and are free to join – to attend, simply reserve your space online.
