January 22 – The Body Exquisite – Shibari Life Drawing

I was unfamiliar with the art of Shibari until I joined this life drawing session, but beyond the initial shock of witnessing Shibari artist Rhiannon intricately tie herself up with beautiful knots to restrain her body with hemp ropes, an astounding and incredible aesthetic life-drawing experience unfolded. Rhianna’s body was never still, as she swayed and dangled in space, making me hold my breath in awe as I drew quickly tracing every move on the paper. It was truly extraordinary London Drawing session to be part of!
