Untutored Life Drawing, Ipswich, Suffolk - friendly, relaxed, informal

**Please note that our life drawing sessions have been cancelled until further notice due to the current Covid-19 lockdown. Stay safe, stay creative. Thank you for your understanding.

A friendly, relaxed and informal untutored life drawing class is now running in Ipswich, Suffolk. (Jointly run by life model Kaz Garrad and Ipswich artist Lois Cordelia)

Monday/Thursday evening sessions - Thomas Wolsey Pub

We meet on weekday evenings (please check upcoming Monday/Thursday dates, below) 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 vary in duration from 2 to 25 minutes. We start with quick warm-up poses, and move on to progressively longer poses.


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, unless we can fill your space - 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.
