Don’t worry, it’s not about the GDPR thing. It’s just to say that next Sunday 3rd of June we’re having our monthly life painting and drawing session 11am-2pm at Studio Bee: a spacious, luminous and relaxed atmosphere to draw or paint the naked human figure. The model will be our handsome Seán.

We’ll be serving proper English afternoon tea at 12pm, with sandwiches, tea, scones and cream with vegan option. That’s right, proper vegan whipped cream and scones. If you prefer, just bring your own lunch. That’s absolutely fine!

Bring your own materials though there will be some basics like paper and charcoals.

Cost £15 – all included
which we ask to pay in advance to book the studio and so we know how many would like lunch.

Please, pay via PayPal or next Tuesday session in cash.


Thank you!

Looking forward to bring my brushes and paints this time!

We are so priveledge to have tonight a fingerstyle guitarrist playing for us live at Life Drawing+ in Studio Bee. His name is Alastair Macdonald and he’ll be playing in a suit for the first part and with jeans and shirt in the second half, standing up or sitting down.

B E G I N E R S . W E L C O M E

Materials, wine & tapas included and all for the same price…£10/£8

This is unique and would be so special.

Alastair has played music of one kind or another for as long as he can remember but it was after attending a workshop with fingerstyle guitar legends Andy McKee and Don Ross that things started getting serious (read: obsessive). After learning various fingerstyle techniques and grooves from Don, Andy and later Thomas Leeb, Jon Gomm, Mike Dawes, Petteri Sariola and Clive Carroll, Al has been seen performing around Manchester as part of the ‘Out of the box’ trio and as a solo performer
