Sketchbooks Library

Shallal Sketchbooks is an ongoing community art project involving hundreds of people in the UK and overseas over the past five years. Participants are sent a sketchbook in the post and after three months they return the full sketchbook to Shallal to be included in a growing travelling library.

We are grateful to our social prescribing partners Imagine If CIC for helping Sketchbooks to carry on through the current pandemic.

The project has reached over 15,200 people so far, throughout Cornwall and beyond, through exhibitions, events and social media. Here is a selection of recent sketchbook artwork. We will continue to add new images to this library.
