ART MACABRE DEATH DRAWING SALONS present
A Sunday special salon at the Star by Hackney Downs pub
Come and draw cards from the deck and discover what 2014 holds for you...
London's one and only 'death drawing' purveyors inject lethal doses of curiousity and theatricality into drawing, with a relaxed afternoon session that will draw inspiration from the art of tarot card reading, fortune telling and mysticism.
Featuring nude and costumed models, male and female, who will pose as different characters from the Major Arcana. From The Fool and The Lovers, to the High Priestess and the Devil- draw your own tarot card illustrations and discover the symbolic meaning behind these classic pictorial representations.
Join us for an afternoon filled with sketching out future visions, dreams and imagination, as we look to divination and magic for inspiration.
Find us upstairs, in the Gypsy Room for fortune telling by Seniorita Skeletina, and in the Circus room for Death Drawing fun throughout the afternoon.
Sunday roasts and full food menu available, served throughout the afternoon. Enjoy a range of local beers, wines and Bloody Maries from the bar. A suitable soundtrack of tunes will be playing to draw to.
Tickets from £10. Earlybird special discounts and food offers available. Over 18s only- features nudity.
Drawing materials provided (pencils, charcoal, pens). Bring along your own paper/a sketchbook to draw on.
