Hidden Writtle University College Walk and Draw – HOD

Hidden Writtle University College Walk and Draw – HOD 19 September 2020

A walk through the grounds of Writtle University College to stop and draw at various points.


A walk through the grounds of Writtle University College, visiting the secluded gardens and animals that are tended to by the staff and students throughout the year.


We will stop to draw in fun and interesting ways that anyone can join in with. As well as lots of beautiful trees and plants to draw there will also be a number of animals that will make good subjects. Depending on availability you should be able to view not only farm animals like horses, cows, sheep, and goats but also emus and wallabies. In addition, as we will be in a farming environment, a selection of farming machinery will be on display for you to draw in contrast to all the plants and animals. All in all a fun three hours to be had.



Meet in front of the Writtle University College building off Lordship Lane CM1 3RR

Parking and toilets available on site.

Please bring your own refreshments.
