Ladyfest Ten Life Drawing Salon
3-4pm @ Studio La Danza

Feeling inspired by the art exhibition? Fancy a bit of afternoon sketching fun? An intimate life drawing salon celebrating women in all of their naked and knickerbockered glory. Grab a pencil and be inspired by female performers in theatrical poses at this special festival salon that will challenge you to capture movement in your mark making. With support and direction on hand from Ladyfest Ten hosts, drawing games and music to draw girls by, it’ll be the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Basic materials provided, thanks to Cass Art. Feel free to bring your own sketchpads and favourite pens etc.

The Lady Garden
12 – 5pm @ The Resource Centre

The Lady Garden is a relaxed utopia of creativity and craftivism, an installation space dedicated to participation and collaboration that will grow and evolve across the weekend with those that inhabit and contribute to it.

The Lady Garden is a place where there are secrets to be discovered and tales to be unearthed. Where organic stories are grown, poems are ripe for the picking and white picket fences await protest messages.

It may be winter outside, but here in the Lady Garden the grass is green and the seeds of creative ideas are ready to burst into full bloom. Kick off your shoes, find a comfy cushion and get stitching, scribbling, printing, weaving and chatting to your heart’s content. ‘Guest Gardeners’ throughout the weekend to help support and inspire you include:

– Craftivist Collective
– Shoreditch Sisters WI
– Sally Crabtree
– Tatty Devine
– Pedalkraft
– London Word Festival Landgirls
– more to be announced!
