About the event
About this event
Body Love Sketch Club is a life drawing class with a twist, in which you can choose to pose as well as draw, whilst we explore ways of accepting ourselves more unconditionally, and expressing ourselves more freely.
Our workshops are an artistic adventure in body positivity and creative empowerment, a joyful and tender tonic to feeling disconnected from each other and ourselves, a celebration of bodies in all their (optionally naked) glory, and a place for creative play without shame or judgment.
All bodies, artistic capabilities and confidence levels welcome.
This is an in-person class in London, 1400-1600. Our venue is Music Room London, 116-118 New Cross Rd, London SE14 5BA (8 mins walk from New Cross Gate overground station), a gorgeous recently refurbished arts space, with a bar and garden.
We are on the ground floor, and this venue is accessible to wheelchair users. Please get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to discuss any access requirements.
£15, including drawing materials (but you're welcome to bring along your favourite things to draw with too).
Body Love Sketch Club is founded on a principle of inclusivity and has a NOTAFLOF policy (no one turned away for lack of funds). If our ticket price is prohibitive to you, please contact us prior to the event on email@example.com
THE GOLDEN RULE...
We have one main rule at Body Love Sketch Club, and it's 'be f*cking lovely!' This means that inclusivity, safety, respect, confidentiality, and consent are fundamental principles of Body Love Sketch Club sessions and that all attendees are expected to uphold them. The organisers reserve the right to ask anyone to leave should their behaviour be deemed to be inappropriate.
Please don't come along if you have a positive test, have Covid symptoms, or are otherwise concerned you may be unwell. If you get in touch with us via email, we will be happy to transfer your ticket to a future event. Thank you for your understanding and care.
TESTIMONIALS FROM PREVIOUS ATTENDEES...
'Today I got to experience human connection, compassion, creativity, kindness, vulnerability, and nakedness in an environment free of shame, guilt, judgement and stigma. The incredible Rosy and Ruby are the funniest and friendliest people and their passion for what they do is so tangible.'
'Thank you for this morning's session. It's the first time I'd done anything like this, and I found the whole experience so welcoming and positive and inclusive. What an amazing space you've created - thank you so much - hope to see you again soon.'
'You do so much more than help people with their body image, you help in healing the past and building a wondrously naked and confident future.'
'Beautifully held life drawing where you are invited to sit as well as sketch - revealing no more than you choose - but doing so in celebration of all the glory of bodies. Silly and moving and classy AF.'
'A life drawing class like no other where everybody is truly good enough and the only goal is to love the bodies you see and love the way you draw them, however that may be.'
'A truly welcoming space for creativity and self-expression.'
'Thank you so much for this beautiful space - to the other models, and Rosy and Ruby, and everyone else. It always makes me smile to be here but especially today.'
