Thu 10 July 2014 : 6:30pm – 9:30pm
Hosted by artist Peter Liversidge
A fundraising event to support Outset Study
Join us and take part in Peter Liversidge’s infamous ‘Gin Proposal’, supported by Sipsmith. This performance event lasts the duration of the gin supply; once the bottles and glasses are empty, the performance is over!
From the artist’s bespoke gin stand Sipsmith will be serving G & T’s in limited edition ‘GIN’ glasses hand etched by Peter Liversidge, yours to take home for only £25. Soak up the liquor with sausages made to Hubert Liversidge's (Peter’s grandfather) recipe and select music tracks from Peter’s ‘drinking songs’ jukebox. This event celebrates the launch of Liversidge’s affordable limited edition print The Rules of the Library ( taken from The Rules of the Library *).
All proceeds from the evening and print sales will raise essential funds for the continued development of Drawing Room's Outset Study.
This event is free to attend, there will be a pay bar including beer. To be sure you don't miss out on getting your etched glass and limited edition buy yours in advance below:

* Created for Outset Study in 2013, The Rules of the Library include real library rules, invented rules and those of widely differing organizations including The Library of Congress, rules of how to travel the Panama Canal, rules from the British Library, and rules from the Monks (a 1960s avant-guard garage rock band) and Rules for Pool-side etiquette.
- In 2009 Sipsmith set up London's first copper distillery for almost 200 years. Their aim was to bring back to the U.K the art & craft of small batch spirit production. They have been distilling spirits of uncompromising quality on a residential street in Hammersmith ever since!
