Suffolk Sketching Weekender!

Join Frui Director James for this amazing weekender to the beautiful coast of Suffolk where James's family roots are.

On this weekender, we’ll be exploring the rugged mystery of the Suffolk coastline from the beautiful and picturesque seaside town of Aldebugh, with its beach based fishing boats and fisherman’s taverns, to the sublime beauty of Dunwich Heath National Park and the remote Coast Guard Cottages from a bygone era.

As  James is very familiar with this area, he knows all the best beautiful spots to enjoy a bit of Sketching. This special Weekender will be a lovely get together for all you Frui regulars and also those yet to experience the joys of a sketching weekender. So expect walks along the beach and cliff tops, the best fish and chips in Britain, glorious sunsets and cosy evenings in the pub!

It doesn't matter whether you are a competent sketcher or a complete beginner, this is for you.

Look forward to seeing you there!

“The area [Abruzzo] abounds with unspoilt national parks, medieval field strips, extraordinary, often ruined, architecture and wildlife. You could call it authentic Italy, unmarred by too much exposure to the modern world”
