The studio is available for hire by members for private use whenever there isn't a class in progress. Bookings must be made by email to and will be confirmed to you. The cost is £10 per hour for the first 2 hours, then £5 per hour.

If you plan to visit the studio - apart from a scheduled class, you must check with the Secretary to make sure there isn't a booking at that time as members who have paid for the hire will expect exclusivity.

The Liver Sketching Club, believed to be the oldest continuously active art club in England, will celebrate its 150th anniversary in May 2022.

It was founded in 1872 and has been active in the city ever since.

Details of events to mark this significant milestone will be shown on this website nearer the time.

We already have two exhibitions booked.


This is the draft plan for our return to the studio - all of it to be confirmed nearer the time and it all depends on the government's guidelines not changing.

Sometime soon after 12 April, we hope to resume classes with the same rules we had for the temporary classes last year - limit of 7 members / masks / distancing / hand sanitising / no tea or coffee.

In week commencing 17 May or soon afterwards, we hope to resume classes with no restriction on numbers but with sensible rules still applying.

From the final lifting of restrictions in June, we should be back to normal with classes every day. Even then, we should all still take sensible precautions.

The full programme of classes may not begin immediately as each Class Leader's individual situation differs and they will need to decide when it is safe for them personally to return to the studio.
