Life Drawing and Repeat Pattern Design Class

A life drawing class with a twist! Draw a live model, and then learn how to create a super cute repeat textile pattern from your drawings!

2.5 hours 1 to 15 label $40

For Sydney Craft week, I'll be conducting a number of life drawing sessions with twist!

We'll start by drawing the model in various poses - encouraging the quietening of your inner critic along the way and keeping it expressive and enjoyable. You'll then learn how to turn these drawings into a super cute repeat textile print in your own style using only paper, sticky tape, scissors and a scanner.

This fun lighthearted class is a celebration of body positivity and female strength.

I'll provide a glass of red or white wine and some light snacks, good vibes, paper and all drawing material required for the class.

Knowledge Required

What you'll get

A glass of red or white wine on arrival and light snacks.
Your very own repeat textile print of naked ladies, and knowledge of how to do it again!

What to bring
