Life Drawing with Rikki Mar

Every Monday, our Malt Cross Workshop holds our weekly drawing classes, hosted by internationally respected illustrator Rikki Marr!

Over the weeks, Rikki takes the class through a mix of techniques in figure and life drawing, including traditional model sessions, studies of hands and faces, and experimentation with colour and medium.

Our small, friendly group welcomes all skill levels, with relaxed and flexible classes tailored to you.

Join us every Monday at 6pm, tickets cost £15 per person. All materials included!
