So we have been teasing you all with rumours of what Lou-Leigh Blue has in the pipe line for DSB, well...


We are pleased to announce that as of 2018 we will be

hosting a bi-monthly Dr.Sketchy's class...


Dr. Sketchy's After Dark


This exclusive art class will run for 1.5 hours on a Thursday evening and be perfect for those who enjoy the quirky twist of drawing performers in costume but also the traditional aspect of drawing the nude physique.


We will focus on one model each session allowing us to introduce longer poses to the class for all of our artists to produce portraits of the models.

We will be saving live performances for our larger sessions to keep ever session unique.


These class will be held in our venue Purple Rose Tattoo Parlour and will cost £6 per class, numbers are very limited per session and will be held on a first come basis, this is a non-ticketed event however we will take names based on interest before the event and put your name on the list, so you are able to pay on the door.

Q & A...regarding our classes at Purple Rose Tatto Parlour



The classes now only run for 2 hours and not 3?

We wanted to offer our sketchers the chance to drawn two models at the same time for more of the session. This will now offer those artists who wish to draw longer pose and those who wish to draw shorter ones the oppurtunity to do both with a shorter break.


Ticket purchases?

You asked and we listened!

You can purchase tickets now via ourwesite through paypal and no longer need to go through a physical ticketshop

You can also now purchase a year subscription and save some ££


As the classes now take place in a tattoo studio and not a bar can we no longer have refreshments?

Please feel free to bring your own refreshments- making this cheaper for you at our sessions. We will provide plastic cups for this.


Is there parking outside the venue?

Plenty, and better still it's FREE!


Will there be table to draw off?

We have a limited number of drawing boards, please feel free to bring any easel's or small artist tables (please email us before the session tho inform us you wish to bring one of these)



We cannot wait to get the year started with our first session on the 18th March, we had a few teething problems to start the year off but now we are all up to date and fighting ready to get this year Dr. Sketchy's Bristol off with a bang!


You asked and we listened!!!

Tickets can now be bought directly through our website using paypal :) We hope this makes things easier for our artists and we are also

thrilled to offer the 2018 yearly package for £70 making a saving of £11 over the year.


See you soon Dr. Sketchy lovers <3
