This was our first and this will also be our last themed event in the Sketchy Beats Cafe! Thanks to all who came down for our inaugural months in that cosy space. We're moving to pastures new in January - watch this space!
Long, elegant, bony limbs. Coquettish eyes peeking from cocooned poses. Cotton stockings. Gaunt cheeks and a a slightly troubled look. Join us as we revisit a wonderfully inspiring theme of Vienna great Mr Schiele.
Come one, come all to [the last of] our relaxed weekly life drawing sessions at the Sketchy Beats Cafe
. It's £5 on the door, or pre-book for a guaranteed seat (it's cosy in there!). There's materials to buy and to borrow (but you're welcome to bring your favoured paraphernalia), drawing boards are provided, and it's £2 for unlimited BYOB corkage. Oh, AND the cafe will be open to keep you energised with tea, coffee, hot chocs, and nibbles. These sessions are untutored but Topaz will happily give tips and pointers if you're new to life drawing. There'll be an eclectic mix of tunes to help you zone out and relax, and each week we'll have different models in a lightly themed set-up: nude enough to engage simply with the figure, yet quirky enough to explore a themed approach should you wish to. Doors for drawing open at 6.45, but the Cafe's open from 4pm if you wanna come down early. Looking forward to welcoming you there! xx Topaz (Reconfigure) and Cosima (Sketchy Beats Cafe)
