Join Ed Isaacs for a journey of drawing around the Jewellery Quarter, sketching local buildings and the newly restored Warstone Lane and Key Hill cemeteries. Ed will be guide you to places and buildings of interest in the area, demonstrate urban sketching techniques and teach you how to make the most of your on-site drawing experience.

The session will start outside the Rose Villa Tavern, and finish at the Chamberlain Clock located at the junction of Warstone Lane and Vyse Stret.

Pencils and sketchbooks will be provided but if you wish to bring your own this would be fine. This workshop is suitable for all levels and no previous experience is required.

Ed is an RBSA member artist who explores the urban environment, recording places of interest and resonance through his sketching. He exhibits regularly at Wolverhampton Society of Artists, and the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA) based in the Jewellery Quarter.

Jewellery Quarter Cemeteries Project


We had an amazing day yesterday at the @jqbid #jqfestival collaborating with @jo_gane1 @suslifeuk @dontgointothecellar and of course the @friendskeyhillwarstonelanecem meeting so many amazing people

We couldn't have done it without everyone's help, including loads of support behind the scenes from @bhamcitycouncil @coffin_works @thehivejq and all the amazing #JQHeritageSquad volunteers.

Now we need to sleep for a week but then we'll be buzzing with ideas for 2023!

We are very excited about 'Diamonds in the Rough' a unique tour with storytelling & live performance, exploring queer history in the JQ Cemeteries for LGBT History Month.
