Workshops // Coming up // Costumed life drawing with Swashbuckling Cornwall
27 February

Costumed life drawing with Swashbuckling Cornwall

Swashbuckling Cornwall are regular workshop hosts at The Poly, sharing their passion and expertise in historical costume and stage combat for theatre and film. 

Popular costumed life drawing sessions in 2020 featured knights, pirates, cowboys and Greeks, and now the Swashbuckling experience is going digital! 

These two-hour Zoom sessions will feature five-minute to thirty-minute poses and a range of costumes and accessories. Every session will give you three different camera angles to draw from. The digital experience will also let you zoom in to pick up detail in the historical costumes. A truly unique opportunity for beginners, artists, illustrators and animators alike!  

You can attend one or both sessions. Tickets are being sold through Eventbrite - £10 per session. 

Saturday 27th February

Knightly Session: 2:00pm - 4:00pm

Saturday 27th February 

Piratical Session: 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Please note these sessions are untutored, but are live so you can communicate with fellow participants and the Swashbuckling team. 

Sign up at Swashbuckling Cornwall's Costumed life drawing Crowdfunder page to buy rewards and receive the link/s. You will need a device (with as large a screen as possible) with internet connection to run Zoom, and your own selection of art supplies.
