Join us for Drink & Draw, a relaxed drawing class hosted in The Tetley Bar & Kitchen.

October’s session may be Halloween themed, but it shouldn’t be frightening to those who aren’t confident at drawing. Using collage, we will explore concepts from Surrealist artists such as Leonara Carrington.

Participants are invited to dress up if they so wish.

Bar & Kitchen
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.


This event is intended for adults.

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

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.
