Sketchcrawl - November 2015

It was a small gathering involving food, chat and sketch.  We met up at Open Air Hawker stalls, and had a few ais kacang and sketch before moving on to Kai Joo Cafe for afternoon tea.  It was a fun afternoon of exploring quick sketch and color on food.  We even tried calligraphy with brush pen.

Sketchcrawl - October 2015

A quaint little street in the old parts of Kuching, Kai Joo Lane is known to a lot of older generations as Kwa Cha Hang (Coffin Lane) because of the old coffin shops that used to be there. But, it was also known as Sar Li Hang, with reference to the zinc roofs on the shophouses.  This lane connects the Central Police Station to India Street (read more here http://www.theborneopost.com/2013/06/16/stroll-down-kai-joo-lane/)

Sketchcrawl - September 2015

Every year, during the Mid-Autumn Festival, a bazaar will be help at Carpenter Street and Ewe Hai Street; with lots of local delicacies and cultural perfomances, not only by the Chinese community, but also by other cultures.  It is a fun get-together for all to enjoy the camaraderie and wide selection of local flavours.

It was a small gathering but a really cool outing with lots of food and chat.

Another Kuching favourite hangout place for locals and joggers is the Reservoir Park, now renamed as Taman Budaya.  It used to hold water for old Kuching town, but now it is a park frequented by locals for evening strolls, jogs and even wedding photography. (photos courtesy of Aurelia)

Sketchcrawl - August 2015 wk3

Stanley Ngu is passionate about recycling timber; into furniture, decor and giving old timber components a new life in a new building.  We were invited to his workshop for a sketch.  It was a feast for the eyes.  Truly full of textures and stories.  Stanley share with us his love and adventure in recycling timber, while we sketched and admired his works.

Sketchcrawl - August 2015 wk2

This weekend was something else other than sketching buildings.  Helena, one of our sketchers, was an active member of the local kennel club.  She invited us to sketch their dog show.  Most of us just stayed at the grandstand, while a few others ventured a bit further.  All in all, it was an interesting experience.
