Raine & James, Drink Gin and Draw Class

How do you fancy getting creative at our Drink Gin & Draw Class?

Situated in a two story space on the grounds of South Causey Inn, Raine & James - Specialists in Antiques, Vintage and the Very Quirky source dramatic and one off pieces from, eye catching interior statements, authentic portholes  re-designed to unique mirrors, original war missiles, opulent vintage furniture and weird and wonderful taxidermy... The perfect inspiration pieces to flex your still life drawing skills!

Every 4th Saturday of the month, a ‘Drink Gin & Draw Class’ will be held in the Boutique. Aidan Donnelly, who successfully earned a BA (hons) degree in Visual Arts and is currently studying for his PGCE qualification, in order to teach creative subjects professionally in the future, will instruct your class. He will show you the basics of how to simplify the drawing subject, how to perfect angles, and the skill in mastering proportion and how to understand the structures of your piece. 

To begin, you will explore the Boutique and pick a Raine & James piece of your choice to draw. Aidan will guide you all the way to producing your masterpiece and an Afternoon Tea break with a well deserved Rip Gin & Tonic will be served in the interval.

All materials will be provided on the day, from your own private easel to all your drawing essentials. The class is ideal for beginners, aspiring artists and those of you wanting to come along for a relaxing day and a giggle with friends.

Arrive at 10:00am, enjoy a ‘creative break’ at 12pm for your Afternoon Tea, accompanied by obligatory Gin slate, before heading back to add the finishing touches to your masterpiece at approximately 1:30pm until 3:30pm.

''Through these sessions, I hope to give all those who attend an outlet to experiment, create and express themselves. In our busy lives, we oftentimes can’t find the time to get together with friends, let alone take the time to nurture our creativity. I hope that through these sessions people can have fun, laugh and create. It is for that reason that I invite everyone to come along to Raine & James to explore, drink gin, & draw!'' - Aidan Donnelly 

All for £65 per person!
