We're open! But in a weird way... No drop in sessions but an ability to book a model to come to you for a session of two hours or more.

Super friendly and inviting group of artists and models. Inclusive and supportive, the collective is accessible to novices and pros alike. Every model brings their own flair to the session, so whether your thing is urban chic illustrations or the classic muse, a wide demographic is represented. Learn something new, fuel your passions, support the arts, and expand your mind! Genuinely good folks, these. Come for a cuppa, a chat, a bit of charcoal and cake. :)

A really nice group of people of varying abilities and materials turn up and sketch one, or sometimes more models from a large pool. Also some group visits to museums, exhibitions, and interesting conversation.

A lovely, friendly environment to come and draw... Whether you can or not, no-one is going to judge. Great place to get your drawing skills up to scratch and meet a very lovely bunch of people! I always feel very welcome and enjoy the sessions!
