This is one of my favourite venues! And a wonderful group of hens who were from all party of the county.
The Curfew is a beautiful listed building and a friendly bar and restaurant run by the owners. There is a private function room upstairs which we regularly use for life drawing workshops.
Some of the hens were teachers and one of the ladies had been to art college and so she was already well trained at life drawing.
The ladies had been making flower head pieces all morning which they said was very good for their hangovers!
The bride was a very good sport and posed with me (fully clothed) so that her friends could draw us both!

This evening I visited Moorleaze Farm Holiday Cottages to provide a Hen Party Life Drawing Workshop! I was working for PoleTwisters.co.uk
It was a beautiful sunny evening and I enjoyed driving through the frome countryside. I even took a photo!
This was a surprise for the bride so I asked her sister to blindfold her and bring her downstairs. She screamed when I asked her to remove her blindfold!
I made sure the bride did some posing with me, which the hens always enjoy.
The girls did some great sketches and everybody enjoyed themselves.

If you are looking for a professional Life Drawing Workshop for your Hen Party in Bath then look no further.
Here are some photos for the last session we did with a wonderful group of ladies who were spending the weekend in Bath.
Usually a Life Drawing session will involve 6-10 poses from the nude model. Drawing materials will be provided, all you need to do is arrive, get yourselves a drink at the bar, and take a seat.
Everything will be explained and all you need to do is relax and enjoy yourselves.
The conduct always remains professional and fun. Nobody will he made to feel uncomfortable, and the model will not come into physical contact with any of the guests. Typically a robe is worn between each pose.
The hens are welcome to enjoy drinks and talk and there is usually lots of giggles as we work our way through different drawing exercises.
Once you have booked and paid there is nothing more for you to worry about. You will be contacted nearer the time and on the day to confirm everything is still ok.

This was a superb and unusual location for a hen party Life Drawing session!
Situated near Cardiff, the Cwm Tawel Yurts are a secluded Glamping camp site in Maesteg.
On this occasion I was a surprise for the bride. The other hens hid her away in a Yurt whilst I got myself ready.
I got a little distracted taking photos of the hot tub and the yurts!
These girls were an obsolete delight! They’d already been having fun all day doing it’s a knockout style games and activities.
I was their last piece of entertainment before they headed out into Cardiff for a night on the town.
This was a 90 minute session (standard). I gave them plenty of paper and charcoal and explained each drawing exercises one after another.
They produced some beautiful work.
This a perfect activity for a bride who does not want a stripper but still wants some fun activities!

This group of Hens were completely surprised when I arrived to deliver their Life Drawing session. One of the girls had booked me and gathered all the girls into the living space of the big farm house they had rented for the weekend.
Once they were all seated I walked in and made big entrance. I introduced myself to the bride and said hello to everybody.
The girls produced some fantastic sketches using char coal and we did a range of different exercises to slow them to try different techniques
Non of them had any artistic background and they were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the sketches they produced.
We did long and short sketches to give the Hens a chance to work at different speeds, we also used non-dominant hand to draw some sketches and also some collaborations where they took it in turns to pass around each sketch and add a little each time.
I was with them for 90 minutes and it was a perfect amount of time to get into the flow.
The girls were from Bristol and a few of them even lived on the same street as me!
At the end we got a group photo and said our goodbyes.

Today I was providing a life modeling session for a hen party who were Glamping in Blagdon!
I was booked by Hens with Pens for this session and was working with a wonderful Art Tutor called Trudi.
The group was big! 20 hens and they were Glamping at a local campsite in Blagdon.
It was a beautiful day and the Champaign was already flowing when I got there.
I was a complete surprise for the bride and most of the group was not expecting me either! I made a big entrance. They had made a special request for me to introduce myself under a fake name, specifically, the name of the Bride’s first boyfriend! It was an in-joke which the group had been running and they all found it hilarious when I announced my pretend name.
We began the life drawing and many of the girls produced fantastic sketches.
They also had a golf ball which was used as a drinking game, whenever the ball got put into somebody’s drink they had to down it! I managed to put this ball into at least 3 or 4 peoples drinks whilst I was inspecting their sketches which they all found very entertaining.
Trudi gave expert tuition and helped get the best out of the girls creative skills.
We all had a lovely time and when we finished we got a big group photo outside in the sun with Blagdon lake in the background.
The girls had more surprise activities planned but they couldn’t talk about it so as to keep it a secret for the bride.
We said our goodbyes and I left the girls to their day and I traveled to my next hen party to be a Buff Butler!

Wow what a beautiful location for a hen party! This group of hens had booked a beautiful wooded cabin at Forest Holidays in Forest of Dean Wales.
I was working for Hens with Pens on this occasion to deliver a 2 hour nude life drawing workshop for the girls.
The cabin was truly spectacular. I even had a chance to practise some handstands on my way to the site 🙂
When I got there the girls had all been chilling out eating breakfast and enjoying the Hot Tub and the Tree house! (Yes there is a Tree house!)
I got them warmed up with some practise sketches before presenting the first pose.
The quality of drawings improved rapidly through the session and by the end of it they were looking very real!
We took a break to have some prosceco provided by Secret Tea Party.
After two hours and a range of different poses I left the girls to enjoy their high Tea!
It was a fab afternoon and everybody had a great time.

Bristol – Bath – South West
Well it was another great hen party at this beautiful country holiday cottage near Bristol. I was working for Hens with Pens on this occasion and was accompanied by fantastic tutor and artist Hannah.
The Life Drawing workshop was a surprise for the bride. She’d been led to believe the girls would only be drawing each other. They spent some time drawing portraits of each other using pencil and charcoal and then were given a long break to refresh their drinks.
Hannah snuck me in so I could get changed and make my appearance.
The bride was lovey and genuinely surprised by the entrance of a male model.
It was a sunny day and the champagne was flowing and everybody was in good spirits.
The group produced some beautiful sketches, some of the hens having artistic backgrounds.
It’s always a surprise who will have talent for life drawing, and with the assistance of the tutor the hens often surprise themselves. There’s usually always a few in the group who produce some outstanding work!
After the hour was finished we said our goodbyes, the girls were headed out to Bristol that night for a night on the town.

Well this was a super fun group of hens! And they produced some great quality sketches too! They had rented an enormous country Manor House near Bath called Week Farm Monor which was extremely luxurious. I was working for Henswithpens.com on this occasion and Amanda was our Art Tutor.
The size and luxury of this house really struck me. The group was large and it easily accommodated a group of 20 with it’s huge hot tub and acres of land.
I gave these hens a range of unusual poses to draw. They already had a Buff Butler the night before! I was slightly jealous since I would have loved to have served drinks in this house. I quizzed them on what he did and they told me he was well behaved and did the dishes!
Whilst I was there I took a few photos of the beautiful house. The hens were very modest and thought their sketches were terrible but actually were very good.
I had another hen party booking that afternoon in central Bath so I had to leave as soon as we were finished. It’s a shame I had to rush off as I would have invited myself to have a go in the hot tub!
The girls had a lot of fun and they had a great weekend overall. Bath is after all a great city to visit for a hen party weekend.
