Life Drawing and Fashion Illustration Masterclass
Thu, March 10, 2016, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM GMT
St Pancras Renaissance Hotel is delighted to launch a series of complimentary weekly masterclasses as part of Renaissance Hotels global entertainment programme, ‘Evenings at Ren’.
The classes are designed to help guests and visitors get under the skin of the local King’s Cross neighbourhood as well as learn a new skill or find a hidden talent. Working with local businesses and cultural organisations, the 2 hour sessions will be held in the hotel’s new eatery, MI + ME, which is located on the Upper Concourse of St Pancras International Station.
Running once a week, the programme will begin in March with Life Drawing and Fashion Illustration classes led by couturier Ms Tammam from local fashion house, Atelier Tammam. The Creative Director and Head Designer of this local bespoke fashion studio, will introduce basic drawing skills and offer practical tips during the two structured activities.
After a 45 minute Life Drawing session with a model, a 15 minute break will provide the perfect opportunity to chat with fellow masterclassers over wine and nibbles from MI + ME. Named after the MIlk and MEat railway carriages that first brought fresh produce to the city in Victorian times, the menu showcases the best of British meat and cheese. The following 45 minutes will be dedicated to Fashion Illustration, with a dressed mannequin set up in a way that ensures attendees develop drawing skills in both form and detail.
Classes are complimentary but spaces must be reserved in advance by printing a ticket from Eventbrite
