Avante Garden | Erotic Life Drawing, Bento Boxes & Mimosa’s

Life Drawing – Avante Garden by Embodiment Rope Space

Join us for a relaxed garden party, creating artworks inspired by bodies, eroticism, and the occasional rope bondage/shibari. We want to create a space that does not only exhibit art that exists on the fringes but also provides the opportunity for you to participate and create works of your own in this realm.

Complete beginners are totally welcome – you need not have ANY experience in art! This is a judgment-free, chill space to create.

We will have our own model/s present and will kick the event off with some quickfire sketches just to get everyone in the headspace to create. Remember to respect the models. Any creepiness will not be tolerated. No photography. 

The rest of the morning will be split into some ice-breakers, diving a bit deeper into your chosen medium and exploring creating works from different poses. A strategic break will also be included so you can rest your limbs and so our model/s can recoup a bit.

We encourage you to bring along your own art-making materials (and potentially snacks if you need any) but we will also have some basic supplies available for use. Note this is not a full-all-inclusive material supplied zone! So be sure to stock up on your favourite mediums and items ahead of time.

Bento Boxes

We have Bento Boxes on pre-sale with the following treats from @reluctantly_yours:

  • Miso mushroom & scallion kewpie onigiri
  • Daifuku Mochi
  • Japanese fluffy cheese cake
  • Rose & lemon verbena mochi doughnut


Embodiment Rope Space is a welcoming and safe(r) space for members of the LGBTQIA+ community and allies. We practice rope communally and host occasional workshops for upskilling the community. Rope is never safe, there are only ways to do it more safely. Even though this event will not strictly be rope-centric, we still ask you to respect our rules and ethos as a space.

Events start promptly at 10:10. Please DM us via Instagram if you are running late. Doors open at 09:40 and are closed at 10:10. We will be strict about this because late-coming can be very disruptive to those in the space. Pre-booking is essential (cash on the day is available by arrangement via Instagram DM). Please have your tickets ready to be scanned on arrival. 

We have limited treated rope from Sudo Jute for sale and safety shears. Non-alcoholic drinks (Coke, water, tea, coffee) will also be for sale. 

Come dressed comfy and ready to create!
