The Memphis Urban Sketchers were the guests of Paper & Clay and Question the Answer on Saturday and it was So Fun! We schedule extra Saturday sketches during October because the weather is usually so lovely, but it was chilly and drizzly on Saturday. Which was perfect! It was so cozy in the studio/shop, and the back door was open revealing a perfect view of the Broad Avenue water tower. We all settled in with coffee and snacks and mimosas (provided by our hostesses!) and played with the adorable studio puppy as we sketched the shop, inside and out.
The pink bubble wrap hanging from the ceiling was a popular subject, as was the water tower. I loved getting a chance to sketch the kilns.
The work of both of these women - Brit’s ceramics (Paper & Clay) and Lauren’s jewelry (Question the Answer) - is really amazing and everyone should visit them at their physical shop and online (please google them as I cannot figure out how to add links via my Weebly app on my iPad) and buy all of their stuff.
