Sydney Sketchmeet 15 - IRON FEST
When: 14th May, 2011
Where: Lithgow Showground
How: Well i thought we could all take the train together
From Central station to Lithgow is 3 hrs, with a half hr walk to the Showground.
Plenty of time for chatting and doing some drawing on the train of people (ie each other)
Tickets from Central Station are: http://www.cityrail.info/tickets/fare_calculator.htm
Why: I for one have had fun there in the past 2 years but as an artist the amount of reference that you just never have a chance to come across in any other day, in real life and in person, is crazy. Jousting, sword fighting, archery, batles, armour, costumes...
Plus it's just plain different than what we have done before and it's a great way to hang out with other artists.
Time: Considering the time it takes to get there and back, and the money that it costs to get in as well as transport, it would only be worth it to do a whole day of it. So we would have to leave central station really early (like, REALLY early), sometime before 7am to get there and have time to walk and get the most out of the show. The show starts at around 10am i think.
