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!

SIATC *UPDATE* NOVEMBER 2010

Dear Teacups,

It’s the final countdown (toodle dooo dooo toodle ooh oh oh) ! Yes it’s the final countdown before Ladyfest Ten Festival. Storm in a Teacup collective have worked hard all year organising fundraisers so this amazing festival would have the best lineup its seen in years. This fantastic feminist cross-arts festival is celebrating ten years of the global DIY movement; Ladyfest Ten is happening across 5 venues in North London over 3 days. We have been beavering away behind the scenes helping to programme the performing arts, comedy, art and music and we have been working with some of the most inspiring and influential individuals and collectives in London. So don’t miss the ten year celebration of Ladyfest and get your tickets now!

Before the festival kicks off we have the fabulous “Girl Fawkes Night: A Ladyfest Ten Celebration” at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre on the 5th of November. Featuring fire jugglers, Lulu and the Lampshades, Vanessa Wolf > Storyteller and the craftavism collective. So come along and find us- if you would like to volunteer or ask us any questions about the festival.

To top of our epic month we will be going to the Bust Magazine Christmas Craftacular on Sunday the 28th of November. Verity Flecknell from (SIATC) and Annette Barlow from (The Girls are..) will be DJing as She Runs With Wolves.
