ARCHITECTURE students have been practising their drawing skills by sketching a well-known Sheffield building where their work has gone on show.

The Sheffield Hallam University students are displaying their work at the Blue Moon Cafe, St James Street, for a week until Saturday.

The exhibition features hand-drawn plans and elevations of the building which demonstrate the use of sciagraphy - the art of representing shadows as realistically as possible.

Housed in the former Eadon, Lockwood and Riddle auction hall, the cafe regularly shows paintings by local and national artists.

Bill Clarke, owner of the vegetarian eatery, said: “The café has an original Victorian lantern roof with plenty of natural light and provides an excellent space for seeing the students’ work.”
