Our model was fantastic. We all had a great time. I will write a review online to let people know how good your company is. The Bride loved the idea and really enjoyed her afternoon.
Thanks again for everything Tony. You gave my friend a memorable day.
It was fantastic! Such a laugh and our model/tutor was awesome! Perfect, thank you, will definitely recommend you...
Our model was absolutely brilliant!! Thank you very much for arranging everything,
the venue was in the perfect location and the bar staff were really friendly and
Our model got the balance of model and teacher just right, he was really interesting
to listen to, and really lovely to draw! He made the whole group very
comfortable. Some of us were very confident and a bit cheeky, others were a
little shy and not sure of their drawing, and he was able to bring everyone out
of their shells and by the time we finished, we were all in a fantastic happy
mood, with lots of laughter and giggling, and ready for a very boisterous
Thank you once again for all your help and advice throughout the organisation of
this event. Polly the Bride was so happy with the day, and thanks to you, I
didn’t suffer a heart attack!
Utterly brilliant combination of laughing and learning. Everyone loved it!
It was the talk of the weekend. A few girls had done something similar but said this time they really learned something.
Our model/tutor was fantastic. The girls all wanted to take him home!
Thank you again for Saturday. Everyone had a great time.
I've passed on your email address to the property owner with the comment below.
It was the perfect balance of cheeky/hen do fun and serious art information. Two girls who did art at university said they got a lot from the class and learnt skills they hadn't at university.
Just to say a huge thank you to our life model Seb who did a superb job at the weekend - everyone had a brilliant time.
We absolutely loved the session, thank you! ur model and tutor were brilliant. Really friendly and put everyone at ease and we just laughed a lot!
We all had a fantastic time, some of the girls were a little nervous when they found our what we were doing but the tutor and model put everyone at ease. Everyone commented on how much fun they had and what a great activity it was as it gave the girls who didn't know each other so well a chance to bond. All in all a great morning and would highly recommend you guys.
I would just like to say how amazing seb made the life drawing class on Saturday everyone was raving about him after and how he made it very classy and everyone felt very comfortable. With the big age differences he adapted it for everyone and we all of course had a lot of laughs our cheeks were hurting haha
Thank you so much again it was brilliant!!
Just wanted to say thank you for helping us give my sister an amazing hen party! Our model and tutor were absolutely amazing! They made the afternoon hilarious & cheeky, without any uncomfortableness! Everybody enjoyed it so much & haven't been able to stop talking & giggling about it! They made the party so enjoyable & funny! Would highly recommend your company to anybody organising a hen party, as would any of the ladies who attended on Saturday!
Just wanted to thank you for organising a great life drawing session with Rob. We all loved it, especially the bride to be - Rob was brilliant, and made it fun and relaxing!
From my first enquiry about a still life model for a hen party, Tony was quick to respond, friendly and very helpful. He remained in touch and gave me lots of information about the session. The session itself, well...... it was just awesome! I didn't want to spend hundreds of £££s on a stripper for 15 minutes of cringe, instead I wanted to do something fun for my friend's hen do, something original and something that she'll remember for ages. And she definitely will!! Tony was extremely professional whilst ensuring our two hour session was fun and personable, and his teaching was amazing! From start to finish, we all had a giggle, enjoyed talking with our lovely model, and our drawings actually improved 100%!!!
Thanks so much for a great session, and thanks for the photos. Our Bride-To-Be and all the hens had a great time :)
"This is definitely a brilliant idea for a hen do activity. I have attended a few hen dos where this has been the chosen activity and can honestly say that this was the best one that I have been to.
The booking process was very easy. Not only did Tony respond very promptly to all of my queries. He never made me feel like any of my questions were stupid.
On the day, our model was very professional. He handled 21 giddy girls very well. The class was fantastic. Everyone enjoyed it (even those who were initially very hesitant) and many said that they would like to do something similar for their hen.
If you are looking for something a bit different, this is definitely the activity for you. Also, it is reasonably priced in comparison to a lot of competitors on the market.
A genius idea for a hen do! A perfect activity for a mixed group re age, ability and background - with just the right amount of 'sauce' to keep it light hearted. The model/tutor knew exactly what he was talking about, looked good, and we were all actually delighted with our finished drawings.
Just to say a great big thank you for the session - it was so good and everyone loved it (and a few now want to take it up!) It was great to have something fun but it was also like a proper Art Class and I actually learnt something (and that's saying something from someone who is much more a performance artist!).
It went really well, everyone was bashful and panicked to start, but it didn't take long before people were getting quite competitive about their drawing skills. Overall everyone enjoyed themselves. It was a great experience and everyone had great things to say about it.
'From start to finish our model was very professional, organising was easy and there was a genuine interest in the Hen and group dynamics so the session could be tailored properly! not only was it fun and a great giggle but we actually felt like we were in a proper Art class and got real advice and tips on how to make our drawings better! It was so relaxed and our model was amazing! I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone thinking of an activity for a Hen party - everyone really enjoyed it and some now even want to find a class they can regularly attend! Thank you so much - the Bride has even framed some of the pictures as a memory of the day!'
We had a fantastic time!! The model was great - really friendly and up for a laugh. It was a great mix of activity and fun! Everyone enjoyed including the hen which was the main thing.
I would definitely recommend this to people.
Thanks for your excellent organisation.
I wanted to say thank you for attending our hen party in Chichester, everyone had a great time! I'm surprised at how serious everyone were which you must have picked up too? Everyone said they felt like they learnt something as the lesson went on so thank you.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you. We had the best time ever on Saturday all the girls thought it was fantastic. Our model/tutor was amazing, they judged the group really well, made the hen feel really special but included all the group, we didn't stop laughing.
I would and will recommend you to anyone organising a hen party.
I wanted to send some feedback about Saturday.
The girls and I had a great time, our model was brilliant and I think a few of us actually got some really good drawing tips too!
Thanks for making the organising so easy.
I would like to compliment your team on the way that the hen life drawing session was run and presented. I am the mother of the bride and, although I am no prude, I do have standards and find vulgarity and overt sexual posturing disconcerting.
This session was run with humour and sensitivity and all involved had tremendous fun. Both the tutor and the model made everyone feel at ease and created a wonderfully non-threatening environment.
I would recommend this activity to anyone.
I personally wanted to email you to pass on my thanks to you and our model for a fantastic class life drawing. I understand from my bridesmaid that due to our original model cancelling last minute, (not booked through you guys) that she came to you and you helped organise this all last minute!
Our model was great and we all really enjoyed the class/life drawing. It was a great activity and we all found our creative sides! He was great to chat to and was a perfect model! We all said afterwards what an original and fun activity it was to do on a Hen Do, no-one quite believed me when I told them what we had done that Saturday afternoon!
So again, thank you so much for organising the class and please do pass on our thanks to our model. I would be very happy for you to use this email for a testimony and to use on your website, I would certainly recommend anyone to you guys. I am also happy for you to use any photos taken too.
Just wanted to say a BIG thank you for a superb session on Saturday!
You pitched it absolutely perfectly for our group, we all loved the way you teased the hen at the start, we all learnt a lot of valuable new techniques and most of all we really enjoyed the exercise at the end. We have collected all of the drawings from that part and plan to do something special with them......in the meantime, we showed them to all the girls at Sunday brunch who had been unable to make the class - they definitely felt like they had missed out....!
"Tony was very professional and friendly throughout. He really got the bride to be on edge when he first arrived and asked her a few questions on what she thought he was doing there…. The look on her face was absolutely priceless! A few of the girls were very nervous about doing life drawing as this was a first for many of us, but Tony was great and his friendly and very good humoured nature put us all completely at ease. I was looking for a booking that was different, interesting and fun, and it completely lived up to what I hoped it would be – Everyone really enjoyed it, we all laughed so much and it really broke the ice, plus we all learnt a thing or two about drawing too! The two hour slot was great and it really did fly by. I recommend it to anyone looking for that something different for their event, and Tony really was great – and a fab tutor too."
“Tony was professional and the best fun ever! As a group, every girl felt comfortable and had a good laugh not to mention how much we learnt in terms of drawing skill. I would highly recommend Tony as someone that adds a little spice to any party. Classy and interactive, this is an activity you will never forget. Thank you Tony for making the weekend we planned that much more entertaining!“ CATHERINE LONDON
"As a group of professional ladies, including a mum and a mother-in-law, we were looking for something higher end that would satisfied our art lover of a friend but with a ‘hen do’ angle. With Tony we found just that! From the moment Tony arrived he played along incognito and ensured our hen had to guess why he was there. The rest of the group were also unaware. Tony then explained what would happened to us all in a relaxed, calm and approachable manner. Tony came across as both sophisticated and educated – all of this went down very well with the group – as I am sure you can imagine. He approached the ‘naked’ subject with great decorum and before long everyone was concentrating hard on drawing the best pic and becoming the next life class grade a student! A great time was had by all and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Tony to future hen organisers"
Excellent night...would recommend to all those lovely ladies out there..
Tony what a night...
Well done H for organising this..
As maid of honour, I was given the task of organising the hen party and was looking to do something different! I scanned through several sites which gave me the idea of Life Drawing. I got some quotes but felt it was not cost effective and locations were not convenient. I carried on searching and came across Tony’s site, immediately I was drawn to all the positive feedback and emailed Tony straightaway! Tony was quick to respond and gave me all the information I needed. Booking process was really easy too!
Tony promised to get in touch nearer the time and also advised he would call on the day, which to his word he did!
The night was a complete success, all the girls were left feeling on a high and we enjoyed the rest of the evening partying! Tony has a great sense of humour and was easy to get along with, even those that felt unsure, warmed up very quickly!
Thanks again Tony for a memorable and enjoyable evening! I would highly recommend you to others!
Our model was great & all the girls want to say a big 'thank you!" We look so serious in the photos, it's hilarious, but some were really putting in some proper effort! Our model was a real sport, happily posing in the bride to be's bedroom waiting for her to discover her surprise!
We had a fabulous time - the girls were pleasantly surprised about the activity and actually found it quite relaxing !
'What an amazing and different hen party! It was absolutely fabulous, everyone had the best time and Tony was great! Had such a fun time whilst actually learning to draw too! Definitely recommend this to anybody - a fun, informative and giggly experience!'
Thanks again - very glad I booked you!
Thank you for a very, very enjoyable class - I couldn't believe how fast the time flew! It was great to learn a new skill as well as have a good giggle and a fun morning. The whole event was really relaxed and you created a lovely atmosphere to the class. And you left a few keen to start going to regular life drawing classes!
"I wanted to thank you once again for the fantastic session. I will definitely recommend you to any friends organising similar events."
"A fantastic hen party activity solution suitable for everyone. Tony was excellent at making everyone feel comfortable; providing the perfect mix of art and fun, with a little bit of education thrown in for good measure! Highly recommended"
I can't thank you enough for an absolutely brilliant party! Our model and tutor were amazing (that man has balls to do what he did!!), from looking after the quiet and shy ones, to coping with the live wire that is my Mother! Literally everyone has texted me to say they really enjoyed it. We all laughed loads and had a heap of fun and some of us even discovered that we can actually draw! Would recommend the class and your company to anyone planning a hen party, without hesitation ;). Please thank our model and tutor and feel free publish my comments.
Everyone really enjoyed the session on Saturday and I'll see everyone at the wedding in a few weeks' time so I'll be sure to pass on your contact details to them and all of my other friends - with a big recommendation from me.
We all had a brilliant weekend, and thoroughly enjoyed the life drawing class, you made us all at ease. So thank you very much, I would definately recommend you for hen weekends and other parties.
I just wanted to send an email to say thank you so much for the life drawing class for Sasha's hen do yesterday. She absolutely loved it, as did everyone else. You were great at putting everyone at ease, and I think we had just the right level of fun, as well as actually learning about drawing! It was really great to see how much people improved on the day. I will be recommending you to anyone and everyone as it was such a great activity, way better than the yoga that the other group of hens were doing!
We had a brilliant time on Saturday - Dean and our tutor were great.
Brilliant in Bath - Dean and our tutor were amazing!!!!
Shane was fantastic. Funny and charming and all the girls absolutely loved the activity. When can we do it again?!
It was lovely to meet you on Sat and we had a great time at the life drawing session. Everyone raved about it afterwards and commented on how much they really enjoyed it and how strange that it felt normal quite quickly having a naked man in front of us. You definitely made everyone felt at ease pretty much straight away!
It was very successful thank you. Everyone really enjoyed themselves (even those who were a little unsure to begin with!). Everything about the booking and day was smooth and professional and I will recommend you to others.
'having never done life drawing before I was a little nervous at how it would go, but Tony was great and put us all at ease straight away. It was great fun, and the time went really quickly as we did several different exercises/techniques. Would thoroughly recommend Tony and definitely do again at a Hen-do or girls weekend away!
We just wanted to say a BIG thanks for making our hen do different and special! Not only did we have a really good giggle, we actually learned something too! A couple of the girls were not sure about the activity, but once they got into it they loved it! You were professional and fun from start to finish and made us all feel comfortable. You were great with all the girls - we were a tough crowd to accommodate with ages ranging from 19 - 60 plus! Everyone had a fantastic time! It can be tough organising an event for some many ladies, so I really appreciated the fact that you always got back to me in a timely manner. I will definitely be recommending you to other hen parties coming up over the next few years! Thanks again!" I am happy for you to use my name on your site if you wish. Cheers, Debbie x
"Thanks once again for the awesome life drawing class! It went down so well, Kate absolutely loved it. You pitched the whole class really well - the right mix of fun and a lesson in life drawing!
Thanks once again, I will recommend you to others!"
Thanks so much for coming over to the Isle of Wight on Saturday - I hope you caught your hover back ok. It was a great way to start our Saturday and certainly cleared the hangovers from the night before!
"I would just like to say what a fantastic day we all had in York, Shane was extremely professional and put everyone at ease. Every single hen said it was the best hen activity they had done before!"
"Dean and our tutor were just fantastic! Thank you!"
"We decided to have a relaxing activity for our Bride to be while staying in a rented cottage. Being able to choose our own activity offered us a lot more flexibility when it came to planning the weekend. Tony was warm and welcoming as soon as he arrived to start our session. Obviously girls being girls we all got the giggles but Tony was a true professional and managed to reduced the giggling to a minimum. We were all amazed how far our drawing techniques had in improved by the end of the session! We would all recommend Tony's services in the future to people looking for that something a bit different!"
" what an amazing event! Tony made us all feel so at ease. Tony tutored us, and we had so much fun, learnt something and actually produced some nice drawings! Thanks tony for an amazing afternoon.... We will be booking again soon!"
"Our life drawing session in Brighton was brilliant - the perfect hen do activity for a February afternoon. The girls all thought life drawing was an inspired idea and our bride to be loved it!
We were put at ease straight away and was great fun, encouraging us to do lots of different drawing activities to practice our not particularly brilliant artistic skills and have a giggle in the process.
Thanks for a great day, we would all highly recommend you to anyone thinking of organising a similar event."
"A so-called professional set up was anything but professional in trying to put us off using henlifedrawing. Very poor form. What's that all about?! When we spoke to Tony he was impartial and helpful. All we would say to anyone thinking of booking with him is you won't regret it! He's the complete professional and utterly charming"
"I just wanted to write a quick note to say thanks for a great life drawing session. Shane was brilliant with our group and please pass this message on to him.
"Tony was fantastic. He provided the perfect start to the day for our friend's hen weekend. Even though none of us were particularly good at drawing, to say the least, he managed to get everyone really involved from the moment he arrived. It was a really fun couple of hours with lots of laughter and we even learnt some great tips when it comes to drawing and we were all a lot better artists by the end!".
He was reassuring to our terrified hen, fun for the quieter ones of the group and in control of the louder ones. Thanks for helping make our hen do fun and different."
"A really fantastic Hen Do activity! Tony was absolutely brilliant and professional. I have been on many hen do’s before and never done anything like this. Tony was recommended to me by a friend and I am so glad we booked him. Despite being initially nervous, Tony quickly put us all at ease. Our group was mixed in our artistic abilities but we all felt that not only did we have a great time, we also all learnt something. Everyone has commented on how much they enjoyed it and I would without hesitation recommend Tony to anyone. It was definitely the highlight of our weekend!"
" Mix a handful or two of classy ladies with this life drawing class, add a dash of champagne and a pinch of hen do naughtiness - and voila!.... The perfect cocktail for a Hen Do success! This really is a fabulous activity - the girls loved it and it was the perfect balance of hen do mischief and giggling whilst remaining totally tasteful. We had such a giggle and were put completely at ease, as some of us have limited artistic skills! What makes this service different is the level of individual tailoring that was put in - emails were answered quickly and very informatively, and I was even given help deciding on the venue. The activity was adapted to the group and I wouldn't hesitate to make a booking again."
"Tony was absolutely fantastic and we had such a fun afternoon. He was a great teacher, made us feel very at ease and we were all surprised at how much we learnt. We both giggled our heads off and produced some masterpieces. The booking process was very smooth with excellent communication. I would highly recommend Tony."
"We all had a great time, the model put us at ease instantly. We all got really into the drawing very quickly and the teaching was great. It was relaxed and funny and yet still informative. I would highly recommend it."
"Fantastic activity for a hen nite/ weekend for all ages. Tony was prompt with all arrangements and easy to contact. He put everyone at ease quickly on the day and we all had a great time. We all surprised ourselves by our drawing ability despite our giggles. It was great fun as the alcohol flowed and not trashy at all. Thank you again for a great session Tony xx"
"The whole experience was brilliant! Tony rearranged at short notice to accommodate some changes in our group and stayed for longer than he should have so we could do extra drawings. He was a fantastic teacher and we all learnt how to draw properly! He kept us all entertained, including my mum and aunt who are sixty and seventy! A number of us had hangovers from the night before but the 2 hours were calming and great fun so we all felt pretty good by the end of it! It rounded off an excellent hen weekend and I've already recommended him to two more hens... A really unique and interesting session that we will all remember for a long time to come.
Thanks again, every single hen has commented on how much fun it was and my friends and family are a hard bunch to please!!!"
"Unusual, fun and informative way to spend a few hours on a hen. Tony was
great and made everyone feel at ease straight away. Will definitely recommend to friends! Thanks again!"
"We had an absolutely fantastic time! It was fun, light-hearted and was great for all drawing abilities. I am going to go back to life drawing now - you inspired me!
I don't think we could have had a better activity on the hen weekend! It was reasonable too! Thanks very much!
Pictures look great too!"
Thanks Tony for a fun and informative art class. We all really enjoyed it, and we thought you were great. As the organiser of the hen weekend, I had researched various life models. But Tony was the most professional one I found. The whole process was smooth and easy to organise, and Tony was very laid-back during the session, even agreeing to wear a mask of the groom’s face at one point! All in all, it was the highlight of our weekend.
"Tony was an excellent communicator. When I found the website I deliberated over making contact but he soon put me at my ease when I did and I quickly decided that this would be a perfect event for the hen! He provided all the information needed and was very detailed in his responses. All went smoothly on the day and after initial hen party nerves we all ended up getting really into it! We would all definitely recommend this as a girls group activity - a giggle with learning! What more can you want? Thanks Tony - we all had a great time!!"
I am so glad I booked the Life Drawing class with Tony. I was a little unsure when I first came up with the idea, but once I came across Tony's website and had contacted him I felt so much more comfortable and relaxed about the whole idea. You will not be disappointed, Tony has been completely professional throughout. I was so impressed with all the communication and planning from start to finish. Everyone enjoyed the class, and all of us have come away with some fantastic memories of the day. We all had good fun, and also learnt such a lot at the same time.
We had an absolutely fantastic time, what fun! Amazing both to learn so much and to giggle so much. The bride-to-be loved every minute. Everything about the hen party life drawing class was smoothly and professionally organised, brilliantly thought through and structured, and totally brilliant and entertaining. Thanks so much for making the day absolutely memorable.
Thanks ever so much for the pics, they're great (and so many ofthem!). I have passed your details on to all the girls and will certainly be in touch myself if organising anything similar.
I would 110% recommend Tony's life drawing class for a hen party. From the moment of booking, he was professional and very thorough in telling us what to expect and also gave us lots of ideas to use with our theme of Adam and Eve. I imagined to have two hours of total giggling and although there were some giggles at first we all got totally into the drawing and every one of us come away learning something new and having improved drawing skills. Thanks very much Tony for an excellent day! x
“What a brilliant thing to do at a hen do! Tony was absolutely fantastic and made everyone feel at ease. It was a brilliant activity to get everyone laughing and not only was Tony a fantastic model, he was also a fantastic teacher and the 2 hours absolutely flew by! I would wholeheartedly recommend this activity especially with Tony for any hen do looking for something a little bit different but still a little bit cheeky...!”
I just wanted to say thanks for the great day on Saturday and for providing such a great couple of hour's entertainment for our hen. It was the perfect combination of a good giggle and really quite informative!
Excellent communication from the first email right up to the phone call ten minutes before we arrived. Tony arranged everything perfectly for us, including venue within walking distance of our accommodation and playing along with the surprise for the bride (she had no idea what was going on!) We were a group of women aged between 21- 60 and every one of us enjoyed the activity thoroughly. We felt at ease straight away, learned a lot and most importantly had loads of fun. Thanks Tony!
All the girls all really enjoyed every minute of the life drawing class, I think it was the highlight of the weekend, everyone really got in to it and learnt so much about drawing! All as well as having fun! In fact there are quite a few of us that want to do it again we enjoyed it that much! I cant thank you enough really, you made everyone really feel at ease and just made us enjoy it so much. Honestly such a good idea and im sure we will be booking you again soon, but hopefully for longer next time!
It was a great experience, was a good laugh and was fun for people that could draw and also for the ones like me that were not so good. Was done professionally but with a good sense of humour and everyone was made to feel comfortable. I would definitely recommend.
Hen Life Drawing really was fantastic, from the initial quotation, to the organisation of the session and the activity itself, Tony made the whole experience easy, enjoyable and educational! We weren't keen to have the awkward experience of bringing a stripper into the group and Life Drawing proved to be a perfect compromise, Tony ensured that the session was professional, light-hearted and very very funny.
"One of the most unique fun filled Hen Activities we've ever done plus the fact we chose to hold it in the Penthouse of the Hotel made it even more memorable! Tony you were a star from beginning to end and our drawing skills had most definitely improved by the end of the session despite the copious amounts of Champagne consumed! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you in the future to anyone who is looking for a Hen Activity that is that little bit different!"
Your class was definitely one of the highlights of the weekend, and we've all been telling everyone we know how brilliant it was, so thank you very, very much.
Just wanted to say thank you so much for the entertainment provided by Shane on Saturday!! We all had a great time, I was surprised at how seriously some of the girls took it, it was fab seeing their faces when I led them into the room (it was a surprise for most of them!) It was a 21st to remember :) Please pass my thanks on to Shane as well.
"Awesome hen party Tony....when you take that robe off, everyone just can't take their eyes off of you! we all had a great time and thanks so much for putting so much effort into the planning to ensure everyone had a fantastic time. It's been a breeze working with you and you do it professionally. I would definitely recommend you again"
Tony - what can I say?! He is both a good tutor and an excellent life model, and the proof is in the incredible improvement we all saw in our drawings through the course of the session, regardless of our getting progressively drunker and sillier as time went on! He made it cheeky and fun, but always retained a professional manner, pitching the tone just right for our group. I would definitely recommend him.
I just wanted to say a BIG thankyou for making my hen weekend one to remember. The girls managed to keep the whole thing a secret until 30 mins before you turned up and I am so amazed that no one "let the cat out of the bag"!
The whole session was brilliant - I was dreading the fact of having a stripper or a naked butler of just gratuitous leering at a naked body! You put us all at ease within minutes of the session starting and it was great that we actually actually learnt something as well.
I have some great pictures that the girls drew as momentos of the evening / weekend which will be captured in my scrap book for ever. So many of my girlfriends that were unable to make the weekend, were so jealous when they found out what my brilliant "maidzilla" had arranged. Without such a fabulous friend, the weekend would not have been as memorable as this one. I have passed your name and web site to a number of friends already and I really hope that you get some more bookings as a result of my hen weekend.
Thanks to Tony for his life-drawing class. He was able to transform 13 giggling young ladies into budding artists in a matter of hours. After some champagne to steady the nerves and the first few tentative strokes of the charcoal, we quickly got over the NAKED MAN in our midst and were more concerned about shading, background detail and perspective.....well, some of us at least. A great addition to our hen weekend and still the source of hilarity and anecdotes when we all meet up.
Tony, thank you so much for making the life drawing session at my friend's hen weekend so much fun. I was nervous about how it would go down with some of the guests but everyone really enjoyed themselves and you really put everyone at ease. Your instruction was great and by the end we managed to do some pretty decent drawings! Thanks again. I will definitley be recommending you to my friends.
"We had such a giggle, it was a great afternoon. We even learnt a little perspective, very rare on a hen do! A brilliant way to spend a hen afternoon, couldn't recommend it enough."
'Thank you for Saturday's life drawing class. Some of the girls were thinking they would be uncomfortable but you put everyone at ease. Everyone really enjoyed it and learnt a lot about drawing whilst having a good giggle. You read our group exactly right! Many thanks. Will certainly recommend you'
"Thanks for a great day! We were a mixed group and some were more nervous than others about drawing a naked man, but you managed to put us at ease. We soon got over that, and started drawing - some of the group's pictures were really good and we all improved from our first efforts to the last pose (which included the hen)! I learned more than I was expecting and we had a good laugh at the same time."
"Thank you very much for a great 'cultural' event for me and my girls! It was a fab way to spend a Sunday afternoon recovering from a wild Saturday night out on the town. What surprised us all is that after we got over the giggles and then warmed up to it, is that we all learned something and a few of the girls have since been motivated to continue drawing! From an organisational point of view, despite the short notice I gave you you really helped me out of a hole. You were professional and clear and concise... and importantly didn't let me down (unlike my previous booking!)"
You were brilliant at putting us all at ease, it's a bit strange to have a naked man in front of you but we got over it quicker than we thought we would! Eventually we actually forgot what we were drawing and put our efforts into making our works of art as accurate as possible. It was also really great that you guided us through and gave us genuinely useful tips on scale/shading etc - our drawings during the last pose were far improved on the first! I'd definitely recommend you to anyone who wants to do something a little bit different but still a bit cheeky on their hen do.
"I couldn't recommend Tony and the life drawing enough, It was a really great activity and everyone really got in to the drawing. Tony was really helpful giving hints and tips so it really felt you were learning as well as having fun! The session was really tailored for the group and all the hen's came away from the session really buzzing! The initial nerves were soon forgotten and everyone had a great time. Thank you Tony for being a great sport!"
"Tony was nothing but helpful and accomodating right from the initial enquiry. At the life drawing he hit the perfect balance between a serious class where we all actually learnt something; and also a really good laugh in a relaxed atmosphere. It is the perfect warm up to a night out and I would recommend it to any hen do - as it breaks the ice, makes everyone laugh, brings people together, and is actually interesting and enlightening at the same time"
"We were all pretty badly behaved but despite our outrageous bahaviour Tony somehow managed to keep order and teach us something! We were all amazed at his self-confidence in the face of sixteen wild women and his willingness to go the extra mile to make our party a success. All the girls said it was just a shame we had to stop when we did! Thanks again!"
"Right from the first enquiry Tony provided an extremely professional service, responding quickly to my e-mails and providing lots of info on how the sessions work. On the day itself he was brilliant at putting people at ease and giving just the right balance between humour and guidance on how to draw. The age range of our group was 21-63 and everybody really enjoyed themselves, proudly taking their pictures home at the end. I would not hesitate to recommend Hen Life Drawing and in particular Tony."
Wow a fantastic experience. You know when sometimes you get a group of ladies together and there is always 1 or 2 of them who aren't happy with something - cost? don't like that? boring? embarrassing? Well this was nothing at all like that. Tony tailored the session to allay any fears or nerves there were in the room. No-one was particularly experienced in drawing but we all came away proud of what we had created. Tony offered some great tips and lots of fun and laughs during the day. He was such an attentive and chatty bloke that everyone warmed to him. He was very open to suggestion about what we did and kept in touch before the day to make sure everything ran smoothly. A very professionally run service that I cannot fault in the slightest.
I can't recommend this experience enough. It broke the ice as some people didn't know each other before the weekend. It gave us something in common to talk about and beats rock-climbing hands down - no-one got chafed knees and elbows. It was something everyone regardless of age or ability could get involved in. It made my hen night one I'll never forget and neither will anyone else. Oh yes - and Tony is absolutely gorgeous!
“I would highly recommend Tony’s Life Drawing Class to anyone planning a hen party. From the outset, Tony was extremely helpful and made the whole experience - from booking, up to the actual class - easy & stress free. We all had so much fun, Tony made us feel completely relaxed & I think I can speak for the group when I say the experience far exceeded what we actually expected. The two hours flew by….and we actually learned something!”
Just wanted to thank you for a brilliant afternoon! The girls really enjoyed it and were still talking about it later in the evening! We even felt like we had learnt some good drawing tips!!
Definitely brilliant fun and it really made the hen do!!
Such a fantastic hen do idea, the girls loved it & actually felt like we learnt something too! The time went by so quick - maybe that was the alcohol though!
"Thank you for such a fantastic session! It was a great surprise for the bride-to-be and she loved the whole thing! Thanks for all the laughs and for making it fun and interesting with the different activities - I hope the group weren't too rowdy for you!! I think it was definitely a first for everyone and I'm sure will be talked about for quite some time! Thank you also for getting the photo's across to me so quickly! I'd already been bugged for them by the girls who wanted to 're-live' the event!! Thanks for everything Tony - you are now a legend amongst us ladies ;-)!"
From the moment I contacted Tony about a life-drawing class for my best friend's hen-do, he did his upmost to make the session as
well-planned and hassle-free as possible. He was happy to answer any queries and even gave me the past clients' details so that I could ask them about him myself (glowing reports, of course!). On the day, Tony was keen to take the session is whatever direction we wanted, but was also great at guiding us when we didn't know what to do. All in all, the class was fun and easy going, but at the same time we learnt a lot and I'm sure all the other girls had a great time too.
I was impressed with your professionalism and flexibility from the moment I first made contact! You were fantastic in making sure that the event was adapted to suit our needs and the personalities of the hens and I was so grateful that you agreed to fly to us as well. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, even those of us that are not (or ever have been) budding artists. We have lots of entertaining memories, and the drawings to prove it. Now it's just a case of persuading the bride that we should put them up as a display on the Big Day!
We had a fantastic session; I think everyone got a lot better at drawing by the end!! We may even have some changes of career on our hands! All the activities were fun but informative and I think everyone was put at ease with your professional attitude!! I think the hens surprised themselves with how conservative they actually were! I have forwarded on your message to all 'chooks' so they can recommend you!
Just a quick e-mail from the everyone at our Hen Party in Brighton last week. Thanks for a fab afternoon-filled with surprise, laughter and fun plus some serious concentration and effort! We had a great time. Nobody had ever experienced anything like it before and it was the talk of the whole weekend, we even found some talented artists amongst us which was a surprise! Thanks again, it's an experience we'll never forget!
"If you are thinking about having a life-drawing session at your hen party then book Tony- you won't regret it. He was professional, charming and very easy to get along with and the tone was just right- tasteful but good fun too for a hen party. He is a great tutor, and makes sure everyone gets the most out of the session- there were lots of budding artists at the end. Everyone had a great time and I wouldn't hesitate to use Tony again or recommend him to my friends."
All the girls absolutely loved the session you did for our hen party - it made the day! A couple of girls recently said to me that they had hen envy as they wish they had used you and the activity for their hen and i have already been asked for your contact details by a couple of other girls who are organising hens. It was a huge amount of fun, a lot of giggles had by all yet at the same time you left feeling you had learnt something. Tony you organised an affordable, fun, informative and memorable occasion - thank you.
The day was really fun, we started off giggly and silly and then mood got more serious after 10 minutes or so when the girls really wanting to learn about life drawing. The group said that they thoroughly enjoyed the day and the model was personable and had lots of information that he could share with us to help our drawing. I would recommend this activity for anyone, it gets everyone involved!!!
Thanks for participating in our hen weekend! Was really enjoyable and everyone had a really good time. Not an experience many will forget in a hurry!
"The photos are excellent and a fantastic memory of what was a brilliant afternoon! We didn't want a tacky or cheesy hen party, and the life drawing session was a great alternative that everyone thoroughly enjoyed. From the art teacher to the mother of the bride, there was something for everyone and all the girls were pleasantly surprised by and enthusiastic about the activity. We'll definately be recommending it to everyone we know!"
"Thanks so much for a fantastic evening Tony! Everyone had a hoot!"
"All the girls seriously enjoyed themselves - you were certainly a highlight! Thanks for making it happen Tony as everyone loved doing the life drawing - it couldn't have been more perfect. "
"Absolutely superb entertainment for a hen weekend. We had a range of ages at our event, and this was a perfect way of introducing some fun without being tacky. Tony was brilliant at making people feel at ease, and even though some people felt a bit weird at the beginning they soon settled down and got into the spirit of things. Tony's drawing tips were also great, and by the end of the session everyone was producing a decent quality of drawing, even those who had no drawing experience. A brilliant day and very good value for money as well."
"i had great feedback from all the girls i was actually surprised how quiet they all were when drawing but i guess they were all concentrating a lot!! One girl said how original it was and that its good for a mixed age group as its not at all offensive. "
"thanks for everything! You were definitely the right choice and the girls really enjoyed it! Would like to add that you were a perfect gentleman and a rather charming one at that ;-)"
"I thought the life drawing class was really good; Tony was a charming and informative instructor-slash-model and managed the class very well. We all felt we'd improved by the end, and the outputs definitely supported this theory, so he oviously did something right. I liked the way he made us try different approaches to challenge our drawing styles and help us start to appreciate perspective, use of visual memory, scaling, etc."
"You are officially on my "tried-and-tested" list (and to think i nearly went with Pottery painiting... christ!) and all the girls have your details and you were the most talked about topic at dinner today .... and so hopefully you should recieve many future calls..."
"Tony was great, made the whole thing not intimidating and get us all to fall in love drawing. Very interesting session, would recommend to other people for various occasions not only a hen do. Really good experience which left me lovely memories!!!!"
"While planning our friends hen weekend we came across the usual hen ideas - strippers, butler in the buff, hitting the pubs, but we had either experienced most of these at prior hens or just didn't want to be faced with a greasey chippendale!
Then we came across the concept of hen life drawing - unusual we thought. At first I was a bit apprehensive thinking it could be full on and totally uncomfortable, but after having reassuring conversation with Tony I thought we should go for it. So glad we did.
Tony was very professional and made us all feel at ease. He came equppied with all the pads, pencils and gave us a good overview of how the session would run. Of course there were giggles but we were on a hen do after all. I'd defintely recommend Tony for those who want to inject fun without it being tackey and full on! We all had a great couple of hours and the hen certainly enjoyed herself"
"You pitched the whole thing perfectly! You were so professional and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves - really, I got such great feedback from the girls. We were all surprised at how comfortable you made us feel. I must admit, I did think it would be a little embarrassing - especially at the beginning - but it wasn't like that at all because of how you handled it. And there was nothing remotely sleezy about the evening. It was just good fun plus we learnt something! Also some of the girls pointed out that although they didn't think they were any good at drawing, it didn't take anything away from their enjoyment and in fact were better than they thought they would be."
"The pictures don't do you justice either actually - you look even better in the flesh!"
"I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone."
We already have confirmed bookings as far ahead as September 2015!!!!!
