A Rare Occurence

Well this week was not a week to have missed. We had two models, Adam and Hope, both highly experienced. They wrote their own script and prepared their poses, so the event became highly theatrical. And it seemed their hard work was really rewarded, to me at least it seemed that many people produced work right at the top of their game. It was one of those rare occurrences, and I was really pleased to be a part of it.

This weeks ‘Special’!

Last week for some reason, we were greatly reduced in numbers, which gave us the opportunity to reconfigure the layout, and try some experimentation. The model was brilliant, and it went really well. This coming week we have a ‘Special’ with two models, a male and a female. The first time we have ever had this combination. We are really looking forward to it, and I hope you are to!

Present Idea…

You might want to give a friend an unusual present for Christmas, or want to encourage them to join you one evening. So we have produced a ‘Gift Voucher’. It costs the same as one of our classes,  and the receiver can use it for any class they wish to attend.

It comes as a postcard, with our name and address, and could even save you buying a Christmas card, though they are not very Christmassy!

They can only be bought at our class (It is not a money making idea!)
and look like below..

See you Wednesday!

Comfortable…

A few hours before last weeks class we were informed the boiler had failed, and we were to expect it to be cold. But as luck would have it, The Edge managed to fix it a hour before we got there.  At this time of year, in a room the size we use, that isn’t used most of the time, it is never going to be hot, but it was comfortable.  Maria was our model for the evening, and it was her first time since having a baby, so it was really nice to see her.

It’s only a theory….

It doesn’t seem that long ago that it was still light when we were leaving the class, but now of course the clocks have gone back and it has been dark for several hours before we arrive. But so far the weather has been kind, and the evenings quite pleasant, and people do not look bedraggled when they arrive!
It always surprises me that the class attendance is quite high this time of year, but I think it shows that people are determined to do something useful with their time, rather than stay locked at home. It’s only a theory.

Crowded!

Well last week was unusual. For some reason lots more people than usual appeared. So apologies if you were one of the ones that arrived late and didn’t get a good vantage point. It is rare for the class to be so full, though it has happened in New Year before it has never happened in November. It was also the first time modelling session for our male model, but luckily he wasn’t fazed by the crowd!
On principle we don’t turn people away, but we also don’t disturb those already present, so if you are late, you are welcome but you are likely to be at a distance

Half Term?

An energetic and athletic Lauren was our model this week (she was straight from the gym), which made for some really interesting poses at start of class (most people leave the end works to be photographed, so they never made the cut!). It was quite a full class, perhaps something to do with half term? Here are examples of this week’s work.

 

Cosy Venue

As the nights draw in (it will soon be time for the clocks to go back!), it is really nice to have a cosy venue where we can meet up for a few hours each week. And lots of people must feel the same, because the number of attendees has not dropped yet, last year there was a dip as winter approached. Look forward to seeing you on Wednesday evening!

Have you got Bluetooth?

As people that have attended our class know we play music during the session. I try and play stuff that is interesting but inoffensive (I often fail on both counts!). If anybody has any suggestions of what to play during the session, message me here or by email (j.p.lynch@ntlworld.com). Alternatively if you have a Bluetooth phone (or anything that plays music), we can always connect it to our speaker. You can create your own playlist for the session!
Look forward to hearing your suggestions!
