D R A W I N G . A N O T H E R . C O N C E R T – a bassoon player

There we go again!

Be ready to listen the sounds of a bassoon, played by Linton Wesley Stephens, and capture the music.

Linton studied at the Northern Royal College of Music and he’s offered to play and pose for us. He’ll come with two costumes, one for the first part of the session and other for the last part after the break.

This live concert and drawing session is for the same price £10/£8 including materials, wine and tapas.

Looking forward to this!




In April we’ll be exploring big bodies, fascinating big volumes, heavy and strong. A very different story than drawing or painting slim people. Think of artist Jenny Saville work pictured below.

We’ll have quick poses ranging 5 to 20 minutes every Tuesday but the last one, on the 25th, in which we’ll have 5min – 15min – 30min and after the break a 45min pose. So bring your charcoal or paints.
