The Mamahood is so excited to be collaborating with The Turpentine, a creative hub based in the heart of Brixton, bringing handmade to the high street. They sell beautiful design led art prints, jewellery and homewares and run gorgeous art workshops from their store on Coldharbour Lane.
We are collaborating to run one of their wonderful DRINK AND DRAW workshops exclusively for our local mamas. Come with your mama friends, or come alone and make some new mama friends - either way it should be a great night!
WHAT IS DRINK AND DRAW?
Ever fancied getting into drawing but find life drawing and naked people a bit too daunting? Or want to learn something new as you relax with fellow mamas over a drink? Then this alternative drawing class is for you!
Discover different drawing techniques and styles guided by our art teacher Jude whilst sipping on the tipple of your choice. Topics we will cover include portraiture, ink drawing, perspective, art pencil drawing and more!
WHO IS IT FOR?
Anyone - it doesn't matter what your drawing ability is! This will just be a wonderful chance to try something creative, learn new skills and all alongside fellow local like minded mamas. You can read more about these DRINK AND DRAW classes as featured in The Guardian.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT ON THE NIGHT?
Drink and Draw swings in to action with a variety of drawing games from Pictionary to blind drawing, getting everyone to enjoy releasing their inner artist. With the emphasis on speed rather than accuracy it doesn't matter what level of drawing you have! You will then be introduced to the main event, from still life to vintage keys while being guided by Jude. She will give you expert tips on shading, tone, composure and more so you build up your drawing step by step - don't forget to drink along the way!
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
Nothing except booze.
£15. You will also receive 10% off anything in the shop, should you wish to purchase on the night. Turpentine sell the most beautiful array of prints, cards, gifts as well as bits for kids and super cool baby clothes. You might even be able to crack your christmas shopping while you are there! There will also be a little Mamahood goody bag to take home on the night.
