DIS Meet-Up 001 – EightySix’d

EightySix’d | 08/06/17

DIS Meet-Up 001 took place at the wonderful café, EightySix’d, in Ironbridge. I’m thrilled with how the evening went. It was a pleasure to meet everyone and I hope to see you all at future meet-ups.
If you couldn’t make it this time or you’ve only just heard about DIS, here’s what happened last Thurdsay…

Everyone contributed a hot air balloon to the collaborative drawing. The owl balloon was my favourite…

 

…There were games – One which involved guessing a word from drawings, another with verbal clues that you could guess only by drawing…

 

…We drew ourselves as our “spirit animal” – We really began to get to know each other with this one!…

 

…DIS meet-ups are intended to be social gatherings and we’re off to a great start because this one certainly was…

 

…As well as games, there were challenges – like “mirroring” your partner as they draw, creating wonderful, symmetrical patterns. Some groups took this much further by also “flipping” the drawing or “reflecting” the pattern four ways…

…Everyone responded to all of the games, exercises and challenges in such a positive way and with real enthusiasm.

 

Thank you to everyone who attended our inaugural DIS meet-up. The support for Drawing in Shropshire has been astonishing, even from before a date was mentioned, let alone a venue.
So, thank you also Molly and Evelina – EightySix’d proved to be the perfect first location.

And, finally, for everyone who wanted to come and either couldn’t make it or wasn’t able to secure a place this time, fear not! There will be many more meet-ups and the next venue will be announced soon.
