Curious encounters ahead. See what we’ve got in store for you this 7 – 10 March.

East London Strippers Collective’s Life Drawing Workshop

You’ll draw poses of strippers in action and take home your sketched masterpiece at the close of the workshop. These unique original life drawing classes are entirely self-organised and hosted by a group called East London Strippers Collective (ELSC), a group of strippers challenging stereotypes and societal attitudes towards strip clubs, by inviting a new audience of onlookers inside. 

Take a class as the model performs a strip show on stage, our class-leader calls out “Freeze!” giving the class one minute to draw the pose before the model continues moving. This section is an intense drawing experience. Once the model is comfortable, the length of the poses follow a more traditional pattern, with five and ten-minute poses at a time.

Each 45-minute class is £15.00 per person. Available for all skill levels – from first-time to doodlers, students, illustrators, and more. Must be aged 18 or older.  No photography allowed in the workshop area. 

The award-winning English Winemakers are back as our Official Wine Partner!

ELSC exists to create fair working conditions for strippers & SWers. The art world is notorious for its dependence on unpaid labor, poor working conditions & the expectation of sustained precarity.

Read more about their efforts to improve the working conditions in the Sex Industry while challenging the stigma around sex work here.
