About Time: You Attended Bombay Sapphire’s Illustration MasterclassBy Angelica Malin
This summer, Bombay Sapphire is set to celebrate the launch of its latest Special Edition, Bombay Sapphire Sunset, with a series of Cocktails & Create masterclasses and Sunset Session Terrace Takeovers, hosted against the beautiful backdrop of two of the most popular staycation spots – London and Cornwall.
Kicking things off, the two London masterclasses will take place on Wednesday 18th August, hosted by local London illustrator, Joey Yu. Located at London’s 12th Knot, you’ll be welcomed to join resident artist Joey Yu who will guide you in designing and creating your own collection of sunset-inspired postcards.
Soak in the beautiful backdrop of this staycation hotspot at sundown, creating your own sunset-inspired postcards with a cocktail in hand. The Bombay Sapphire Sunset cocktails have been curated to perfectly capture the glow of the sunset and to mark the moment where the end of the day draws to a close and evening begins.
When: Joey Yu at 12th Knot, 6-7pm or 7-8pm, Wednesday 18thAugust – tickets available here.
Host of the Cornwall masterclass on Saturday 11th September is Falmouth born and bred Elly Jahnz. Elly is an illustrator and designer whose style incorporates vibrant colour with illustrations of people and scenery, and is often focused on capturing Cornwall at its finest. Elly’s masterclass at the Polurrian on the Lizard will take place from 6-7pm – bookable here.
Both artists will kick off their workshops with demonstrations, showing guests how to translate the beauty of a sunset memory into a work of art before guiding them in the creation of their own stunning series of postcards using a variety of art materials. Postcards can then be stamped to send to loved ones as a memento from their staycation.
