Adult Masterclass: Fashion Drawing and the Muse

Capture movement, fluidity and minimalism through experimental line drawing.

When, Where

Sue Dray, fashion illustrator and Course Leader of Fashion Illustration at London College of Fashion will run a drawing session inspired by our current exhibition, Jo Brocklehurst: Nobodies and Somebodies.

Fashion illustration is currently having a resurgence and the discipline of this subject relies on understanding the importance of the muse with a focus on proportion, attitude and vibrancy.

These skills are learnt and honed in the life class, drawing from a model, a process which, historically, has underpinned fine art practices. In this session, we’ll learn to understand the figure and its relationship to clothes – its ethereality and its essence.

Sue Dray has illustrated over 40 years working for groundbreaking feminist publications Spare Rib and The Women’s Press. Through the 80s she made regular contributions to Gay Men’s Press and Gay Pied in Paris, and drew backstage at Soho’s infamous cabaret den, Madame JoJo’s. Sue currently draws backstage for Vivienne Westwood and Andrew Logan’s Alternative Miss World.

This session is suitable for all levels.
