Swallows and Amazons: JAPAN special

With Japanese ink and manga drawing techniques, this week at the salon we’ll look to Japanese art and culture for inspiration,
as models play with and question female stereotypes and imagery of Japanese women such as the geisha and the samurai, submission and strength. Hosted by Cherr Blossom Bakewell sharing Japanese drawing ideas, with MODELS geisha Hanami Hannah & Empress Mazuki the female samurai. Celebrating women in all their naked and knickerbockered glory, each week we present models that are nude, semi-nude and costumed to inspire artwork that can be submitted to be part of Ladyfest Ten’s art exhibition.

Swallows and Amazons: FOLK special
featuring THE BELLES OF LONDON CITY morris dancing trio

This week’s theme for sketchers to be inspired by and explore is ENGLISH FOLK. Featuring THE BELLES OF LONDON CITY female morris dancing trio
performing and posing, accompanied by live music. Plus THE GREEN WOMAN. Think Wicker Man, think maypoles, think a folk-load of inspiration to draw…
A Ladyfest Ten fundraiser in collaboration with Storm in a Teacup and Cass Art. Artwork and photography from all the salons (since the launch in May) will feature in an exhibition as part of Ladyfest Ten festival
Swallows and Amazons: DEATH BECOMES HER Halloween Special

As twilight descends on the salon, beware a mass graveyard-full of the deadliest life models in town. Featuring Jackie-O-Lantern, werewolf versus vampire battle scenes, zombie prom queens and mummified models posing for your drawing pleasure. Mark All Hallow’s Eve early with some killer mark making and prepare for your page to get more than a little blood splattered…With your ghostly host Raven Rouge dishing out drawing tricks and treats to a soulless soundtrack from Storm in a Teacup. The final salon before Ladyfest Ten’s main festival weekend.
