Trade School Digbeth: Inspiring Sketching and Design

Join Mark Kelly for a workshop on Inspiring Sketching and Design


In this class you will learn:

  • Perspective Construction
  • How to loose your fear of drawing
  • Group Drawing
  • Inhabiting drawings with people
  • How to draw from imagination/memory (just ask if you are interested in this!)


About Mark:

Mark Kelly has been working as a designer architect and teacher for 11 years. He has taught Drawings at universities for over 3 years. In 2015, Mark represented the UK for architectural hand drawings at the British School at Rome. You can see Mark’s work on his website  and you can also follow him on Twitter.


Barter items to bring for Mark:

Trade School Digbeth is run on a bartering system and no money is exchanged. Teachers hosting classes ask for small items (of low monetary value) and for this class Mark is asking for attendees to share their knowledge/skills on:

  • Coding Skills
  • Languages (Mandarin, Italian, Spanish, French)
  • Practical skills such as electrical or plumbing
  • Mindfulness
  • Swing Dancing 🙂

Or you can offer Mark some bakes goods or beer 🙂  in exchange for his class!



There is no charge to attend a class but please note, places on Trade School Digbeth classes are limited, so please only book if you are able to attend. If you book a place and then find yourself unable to attend, please do let us know or cancel your ticket as this will enable us to offer you place to someone else.


About Trade School

The Trade School network is a collective of self-organised barter-for-knowledge schools across the world. Trade School began in January 2009 as an experiment by a group of artists in New York City who wanted to celebrate local wisdom, mutual respect, and the social nature of exchange.

Trade School Digbeth is a local chapter of this initiative driven by the Impact Hub Birmingham community and friends. For more info and other upcoming Trade School classes, click here.
