Suffolk Sketching Weekender!

Come and have some fun in the sun! Join Frui Director James for this amazing weekender to the beautiful coast of Suffolk where James’ family roots are.

On this weekender, we’ll be exploring the rugged mystery of the Suffolk coastline from the beautiful and picturesque seaside town of Aldebugh, with its beach based fishing boats and fisherman’s taverns, to the sublime beauty of Dunwich Heath National Park and the remote Coast Guard Cottages from a bygone era.

As  James is very familiar with this area, he knows all the best beautiful spots to enjoy a bit of Sketching. This special Summer Weekender will be a lovely get together for all you Frui regulars and aslo those yet to experince the joys of a sketchiong weekender. So expect walks along the beach and cliff tops, the best fish and chips in Britain and sunsets on balmy evenings.

It doesn't matter whether you are a competent sketcher or a complete beginner, this is for you.

Look forward to seeing you there!
