Join artist and activist organisation Spirited Bodies for an empowering online life-drawing workshop that explores the long-lasting tradition of drawing as a tool for storytelling.

Inspired by the summer exhibition, Making a Mark, Spirited Bodies will offer a space to talk to life models about their relationship with their bodies. Whilst exploring how the drawn line can capture memories and lived experience, we will allow our creativity to be guided by free-flowing discussion.

Spirited Bodies is an activist organisation that champions body positivity, feminism and personal empowerment through the practices of life modelling and life drawing.

This workshop is for all levels and abilities – absolutely no prior drawing experience needed. We look forward to bringing our collection to your home.

This event will take place online via Zoom with the link to join being shared in advance via email.

This event is for ages 18+: there will be nudity and sensitive discussions about the body.
