Sarah Boulton & Jesse Darling at Islington Mill
London-based artists Sarah Boulton and Jesse Darling are coming to Islington Mill in a talk promoted by local arts label Caustic Coastal. The pair are former founding residents of South London’s radical Kitson Road Living Project, an experiment in communal living in a Camberwell terrace. The pair will be talking about the project and its affect on their work, as well as discussing their recently-published book on the subject. In keeping the communal theme, there’ll be a pot luck dinner after the talk and possibly an opportunity to explore Caustic Coastal’s gallery space after hours.
Wed 20 Jul, Islington Mill, 1 James Street, Salford, M3 5HW. 7pm – 9pm, www.facebook.com

Life Drawing at The Whitworth
As part of their Thursday lates series, The Whitworth is offering this one-off life drawing class as part led by artist Sarah Sanders. Sanders will be leading her model and an army of sketchers around the gallery to produce a series of poses and drawings based on the exhibitions: Sleeping, working, mourning and dancing. There’s no booking required to take part, and drawing materials are provided, but we’d recommend getting there early if you want dibs on the sharpest pencil.
