Event description

Description

Natasha Porter will be presenting her experience of life modelling and talking about her journey in nude art and other adventures whilst posing. She first began modelling for artists in 2013 at Spirited Bodies and has gone on to model a great deal for numerous artists and groups, including for photography. In parallel to her modelling she has been developing as a photographer, organising many nude art collaborations. In 2015 she created Project Naked; a monthly nude outdoor photoshoot, sometimes involving a group, or individuals, particularly in iconic land/cityscapes. She also runs a weekly life drawing group - Lenu - in Hornchurch with her sister, and is passionate about the benefits of body liberation through nude art and other endeavours. Each year she helps to run the World Naked Bike Ride in London.

At this Stories of Women event there is also the chance to try life modelling yourself, or you may come to draw and/or listen or join in the conversation. During the second half there is a discussion about the body politics of life modelling and related matters. There is guidance for new models - no experience necessary, and some drawing materials are provided - again no experience necessary.

The event is open to all women and is a safe space for sensitive discussion about a range of topical and delicate issues. Please bring an open heart and mind! Also if you have a spare robe (and want to model) that's good too.

At the end there is time to look at the drawings, if you want to show.

Payment is on a sliding scale, you decide. Paying on the door is fine (but it's great if you buy in advance too!) This site is now charging to have multiple ticket options so if you would like to pay less than £10, please bring cash, any amount appreciated thank you.
