A life drawing class with a difference! Join artist Joanna McCormick and storyteller Giles Abbot for Drawing Stories - a unique three hour life drawing class upstairs in the Bar at Union Chapel.


With storyteller Giles Abbott and two models acting to the dramatic unfolding of a fantastic, eerie and sensational story. With pauses to music throughout, for you to draw different poses, working up to a long pose.

This promises to be a unique, theatrical and very dramatic life drawing session upstairs in the bar at Union Chapel. Giles Abbott – UK’s only blind professional storyteller is well known for his strong voice, language and stage presence. Giles is also a voice teacher and poet.

Artist and teacher Joanna McCormick will be giving hints and tips on how to capture movement, emotion and drama in a figure drawing.

We will have 2 models acting to Giles’s story, and holding the poses to music for you to draw at intervals throughout the night, with regular breaks for refreshment from the bar.

With a series of short poses working up to a long pose, free art materials and drinks available for purchase from the bar throughout the night, this is sure to be a very interesting, engaging and magical evening.

Bring your own drawing board or use our tables. All levels of ability are welcome, so if you’re a fresh young amateur or a life drawing regular master, come along to drink and draw!

Suitable for over 18s only.
