York's Forgotten Sculptor: George Walker Milburn
Wednesday 25 April 2018
St Michael Le Belfrey Church Hall, Stonegate, York
In an illustrated lecture by Dr. Tony Power, who has been researching the carver for over six years, with exclusive access to his ledgers, will attempt to restore Milburn to rightful recognition of his artistry.
George Walker Milburn (1844-1941) was one of the most prolific carvers and sculptors of the later C19th century and early 20th century. He worked with most of the major architects of the time. Evidence has been found for over 1500 of his works, more than 300 of which are extant. Yet, except for a few works, he is all but forgotten in his native York.
Dr Sketchys: We Did It For The Wookie
📅 Friday 4 May 2018
A long time ago in an art class far, far away….
Sketch Wars! - We Did It All For The Wookie!
On May the 4th we celebrate Star Wars day when The Fourth will BB-8 with us at Spark:York's un-Porg-ettable grand opening night!
We’re celeb-Rey-ting the Spark community project Gungan style with a whole host of weird and wonderful characters for you to draw. Special intergalactic burlesque will be provided by our favourite scruffy-looking nerf herder, Bobby Pinn who’ll get your head in a Bespin and fun Jedi themed prizes will be Obi-Wan!
Added to this, Spark will be like Mos Eisley itself, littered with crafted drinks, places to grab a Canto Bight of street food and to peruse the independent stalls. So get your First Orders at the bar before it gets Darth, don’t put-up any Resistance and if you have to come Solo you never know, you might even get Wookie.
It’s not a trap, you don’t have to speak Bocce and no artistic skill or mind control tricks are necessary in our training academy. Master or Apprentice, Sith or Jedi, Princess, walking carpet or Ewok everyone is welcome, come along!
Tickets can be purchased on our Eventbrite, get them early before they’re all Qui-Gon.
If you got all these puns then Yoda ones we want at this event.

At Dr Sketchy’s we seek to shake up the traditional life drawing experience– there will be no-one telling you how to draw, what to draw with or at what pace. We celebrate drawing the way you've always wanted to. We're not a serious art class, just a lot of Art Monkeys giving it a go in a relaxed atmosphere.
We love audience input and involvement. Please let us know what you think, and what themes you would like.
