London Drawing: Upcoming Life Drawing Workshops


Body Narratives

In collaboration with Graduates from London College of Fashion
MA Costume Design For Performance
21 May 2016


” I’ve always loved drawing but too often couldn’t reconcile my excitement with the still life of a bowl of fruit or stationary naked model in front of me.

I would love to do a London Drawing workshop, they produce such vibrant interesting work which comes from a process that positively fizzes with living energy and movement. London Drawing is surely “true ” life drawing in action.”

– Mike Shepherd, Kneehigh Theatre

Join London Drawing for an inspirational day of gorgeous imaginings at the fabulous Ugly Duck Art Space, London Bridge. They’ll be collaborating with MA Graduates from London College of Fashion, Ester Mangas and Tania Ortiz Zamorano, to present scenes based around their dynamic costume designs. Be inspired by epic body sculpture, fantasy narratives and high octane surrealism to create your own masterpieces of imagination through drawing and collage. Get ready to leave your average life drawing class at the door…

Ester Mangas is a Freelance Costume Designer and Maker, creating costumes which blur boundaries between performance and and is currently working for Burberry.

Tania Ortiz Zamorano is also a Freelance Costume Designer and Maker, creating dynamic sculptural body pieces currently based on Japanese literature.
