Painting and Sketching at Bursledon Brickworks Industrial Museum

 Bursledon Brickworks Industrial Museum

Thursday 29th July 11.00am – 4.00pm

Those attending were spoilt for choice of painting and sketching subjects here, inside and out: the steam powered brickmaking machinery, the large collection of chimney pots and tiles, the Penny Arcade. Southampton & District Transport & Heritage Trust are based here with their collection of buses. Before we started, some of us enjoyed  tea / coffee cakes at Wonderberry’s Café, now open seven days a week.  

More information about the collections and the full history of brickmaking at Bursledon is on the Museum’s website

One of our members, Steve Whitehead is a resident artist at the Museum, with work for sale in their shop.
