Untutored Life Drawing, Ipswich - friendly, relaxed, informal

March 07, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

A friendly, relaxed and informal untutored life drawing class is now running in Ipswich, Suffolk.

Monday/Thursday evening sessions - Thomas Wolsey Pub

We usually meet on specific weekday evenings (please check upcoming Monday/Thursday evening dates) upstairs at the atmospheric Thomas Wolsey pub, 9-13 St Peter's St, Ipswich IP1 1XF. Each class runs for 2 hours (6:30 pm - 8:30 pm), and costs only £6 (on condition that every attendee also purchases a drink from the bar downstairs). Poses usually vary in duration from 2 minutes to 25 minutes. We start with quick warm-up poses, and move on to progressively longer poses.

Sunday daytime sessions - La Tour Cycle Cafe

Due to popular demand, we have also started holding Sunday daytime sessions (10.30 am - 4.00 pm, with 4 hours drawing time, including longer 1 hour poses) at La Tour Cycle Cafe, Tower Street, Ipswich IP1 3BE. Please check upcoming dates.


Places are limited to a maximum of 10 artists, so sessions must be booked in advanceN.B. If you are unable to attend, you will still need to pay - this ensures that we can pay the model's fees, keep the class running and keep costs to a minimum. Thank you for your understanding. Please contact Kaz Garrad on 07938 434442 or [email protected] to book a place, and for more information.
