SWITCHBOOK is an innovative collaboration, bringing together art educators from across Somerset, working side-by-side on a continuous sketchbook journey.

Take a look through our ever evolving gallery of sketchbook conversations.


SWITCHBOOK 2023 saw a community of 14 arts leaders, teachers and support staff from Key Stages 1-5 taking part in our postal sketchbook circle.


Using the theme of ‘Sanctuary’, participants were encouraged to think about what it means to them and responding to the work of their partners. Sketchbooks came in all shapes and sizes, from a lifestyle magazine to an old story book; all have been given a new life within SWITCHBOOK!

“Corresponding with other teacher artists and makers gave me time to focus on my own development in a friendly and supportive way.”
