For those of you interested in sketching on the heath itself, there's also a detailed map here of points of interest.
If you do want to draw on the heath, it's worth noting that it's pretty big to say the least (!) so you may not want to trek all the way back to meet at lunchtime at the museum - this is perfectly fine, we can always catch up at the end at 3.30 instead.
Additionally, if you don't want to do a lot of walking, it may be best to choose either Hampsead village OR Hampstead Heath rather than attempting both, but it's up to you!
Hopefully June means that it's a fairly safe bet that the weather will be fine, but in England who knows! Hampstead Heath is fairly lacking in shelter, other than trees!
As always, it's free to join, you just need to bring your own sketching materials... and perhaps an umbrella and/or suncream.
Hope to see you all soon!
