Switchbook is an innovative collaboration, bringing together art educators from across Somerset,

working side-by-side on a continuous sketchbook journey.

Welcome to Switchbook 2022!

We are kickstarting our NEW Sketchbook circle for 2022 for arts education leaders from across Somerset. Join us on a supportive collaborative sketchbook journey resourced by network events, peer to peer support, and skills sharing.
Cost: £50
Duration: February 2022 - November 2022

The deadline to sign up for this project is Monday 14th February.
What is Switchbook?
Switchbook is a blended CPD programme devised and led by Spaeda. Established in 2016, Switchbook was designed to bring together a community of arts education leaders, sharing skills and experiences to develop existing drawing, art, and education practice through collaboration and peer support.  

How does it work?
Once you start your Switchbook journey you will be assigned two partner arts educators who you will be sharing sketchbook conversations with for the duration of the project. You will be swapping sketchbooks each month responding to the work of your partners.
As well as the swaps we will be holding sessions at venues such as Hestercombe, where you will get the chance to meet your partners in person, work in your sketchbooks in beautiful locations and build your confidence with peer support. Attending these sessions is optional.
How do I take part?

If you would like to take part in Switchbook 2022, please fill out our quick sign up form below to secure your place. You will then be sent a letter confirming that you are part of Switchbook 2022 and explaining how to get started and who you'll be sending your sketchbook to.
