Join us for the first Drink & Draw of 2022!

This relaxed, creative evening is the perfect chance to reconnect with friends (and even make new ones).

In this session we’ll be exploring portraiture. You’ll experiment with using mirrors and also partner up and draw each other.


Drink & Draw is The Tetley’s regular series of live drawing events, inviting you to get creative in a relaxed, sociable atmosphere.

This event is intended for adults.

No previous experience is required, and all materials are provided.

Why not make an evening of it? Join us for food and drink inside our Bar & Kitchen, open Wednesdays to Sundays, 9am–6pm. Book your table here.

About the artist

Herfa Thompson is a London-born artist, currently based in Leeds. She studied Sculpture and Environmental Art at The Glasgow School of Art. Having grown up in Southern Africa, Thompson experienced frustration that her return to the UK was not made to feel like a return home. Her work explores a world where brown bodies are peacefully and joyfully existing, referencing nostalgic memories of her time in Africa and Martinique, as well as exploring the relationship between humans and bodies of water.
