Thank you very much we had a really great time! The balance of fun ‘hen’ activities and helpful, informative drawing techniques delivered by you was just perfect for us. Great to flex our drawing muscles again. Marcus was great too, relaxed but professional (and of course very handsome!) Have sent the picture on to the ladies, am sure they’ll be pleased with those! Thanks again for a great time, will recommend you to any other hens I come across.
Thank you, the day was a roaring success! Many many thanks for a fantastic session, and for the photos! We all had a really fantastic time (the Hen was particularly pleased) and now feel inspired to continue with life drawing – and pass on my thanks to Paul and Marcus for making it a really comfortable and fun session, and to you for helping with the organisation. I’ll definitely be recommending it to other Hen-do organisers. Thanks again!
Thanks very much for sending through the photos – great to get a souvenir of the event. We very much enjoyed our session. I know everyone was very impressed with the professionalism and the varied activities and how fun and informal it was. A very lovely and good value activity, thanks!
Thank you so much for the pictures and a huge thank you for such a wonderful session on Saturday it was brilliant and everyone had such a fantastic time. Just a note to thank you and Alex very much for the session, it was run perfectly and super fun. We all really enjoyed it. The weekend was a huge success!
I need to say a massive thank you for everything you did to make my sister’s Hen Party a massive success. I’m really glad that we decided to book a life drawing class with you as it was so much fun. All the Hens thoroughly enjoyed the class. The structure and relaxed atmosphere you created put everyone at ease and we all agreed that you struck a fantastic balance between cheeky fun and learning a new skill. I really appreciate all the extra help you gave us, especially with the clean up of the room. Thank you too for sending over your fabulous photos so quickly. It was great to be able to show them to everyone over breakfast the day after our class and they will be a great reminder of our day. Please also pass our thanks to Alex for his professionalism and bravery!

Thank you for the amazing photos! In terms of feedback I just wanted to say that the session was the perfect surprise for our hen Priya, she had no idea what we had planned and absolutely loved it! The session was brilliantly run. It was the perfect balance between interesting and informative -with the opportunity to pick up some drawing skills – and fun and cheeky with some excellent games involving our hen. Our model was charming and got involved in the fun! I would really recommend it as a hen party activity for people who want to have a classy hen party but are still looking for a bit of cheekiness. Thank you so much! Thanks for being a part of making Priya’s hen party so special!
“Many thanks for a wonderful Life Drawing session last weekend, it went down a treat. Professional and pitched just right.”
“Just a note to say thank you for the amazing class we had on Saturday. It was so much better than expected, saying that I wasn’t sure what to expect but the session was brilliant! All the hens had a great time, yourself and Alex were great hosts, made us all feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend you to everyone, it was a perfect session to begin our hen do celebrations. Certainly an experience we won’t forget. Loved the fact it was a very informal art class as well as a bit fun, we all learnt something about drawing. Loved the touch of the moustaches and hats. All in all, it was a superb 1.5 hours! Thank you again for all your help and hard work. I look forward to seeing the photos soon.”
“The photos are brilliant. Thank you so much. I’ll pass them onto the girls. We all had a fab time! Loved every minute of it and thought it was brilliantly done. I will definitely be recommending to friends thinking of something similar!”
“What great photos! We had a fantastic time and both you and Marcus did a great job. We only have positive feedback.”
“Many thanks for a really fun day. We all had a great time, especially the groom! It was a very good mix of learning about life drawing and also hen/sten party fun!! So many thanks to both you and Marcus. Thanks so much for sending through the photos so quickly! Thanks again!”
“I just wanted to say a big thank you for a fabulous session for Emily’s hen on Saturday. I have never been gifted in the artistic department and was (if I confess) a little nervous about a life drawing course. Well, you made the session so enjoyable and accessible that I must confess that I had a really good time and feel that I learnt something. Thank you! The structure of the session was a good balance between learning and fun and your games and prizes were spot on. Taking the photos for us so we didn’t need to worry was another well thought out touch. I would definitely recommend you to others.”
“Thank you for a brilliant evening! Everyone really enjoyed it and thought how well you tailored it to a hen party yet how classy it was! The pictures are great!”
“Many thanks to both you and Alex, everyone has a great time and we were talking about it all night. The photos are also brilliant. We thought the whole session was pitched just right, as I hadn’t appreciated how nervous a few of the ladies were beforehand, but they all enjoyed it and feel we learnt quite a bit too!”
“Darren… What can I say? Everybody absolutely loved the life drawing session with you yesterday. It was fun and informative at the same time. Alex was not only gorgeous to look at but modelled for us perfectly! I would have no hesitation in doing this again and in recommending this activity to anyone else. Absolutely brilliant…thank you so much. I won’t forget this for a long time…. age permitting!”
“Hi Darren, thanks for the brilliant photos from our session! I’ve passed the link on to the rest of the lads. We all really enjoyed it and thought you were a great host/instructor. We all felt as though we’d actually learnt something as well as had a laugh and it definitely made for a memorable part of our weekend. Thanks again for everything.”
“Thank you so much for yesterday – the team really enjoyed themselves, and it was really well organised from your part. Hopefully our paths will cross again, and I’ll also keep you in mind if ever I’m organising any future hen or corporate events. Bit thanks from HELLO magazine!”
“Thank you so much for yesterday and the photos which are great. We all had a really great time – everyone thoroughly enjoyed the class. Feedback from everyone was that it was really fun – a perfect mix of silly and actually learning some art skills. I would 100% recommend you to anyone planning a hen do. On a personal level you have been flexible and helpful when organising the session – I was very grateful that you were willing to come to the house for the event and felt that the cost was very reasonable. Once again – everyone felt the tone or your life drawing class was spot on and had great fun. The hen loved it and so did everyone else!”
““Thanks for sending the photos across and for making yesterday a lot of fun.We all really enjoyed the relaxed / laid back approach, whilst still getting artistic pointers. I thought the different games encouraged everyone to get involved and made it even more fun.Thanks again and best of luck with it all.”
“Darren, thank you so much for Saturday! We all LOVED the drawing and everyone was saying how fantastic you were! You were brilliant – obviously so – you’re a red head! Pictures are awesome! The life drawing I feel was considered the weakest part of the stag to begin with but ended up being a highlight!!”
‘We had a brilliant time and it was the highlight of our day!”
“The rest of the night was great, thanks, the end came too soon. Feedback on the class was great. I think quite a few people didn’t know what to expect, and were perhaps a bit worried it might be a bit sleazy/awkward, but they all said they really enjoyed it on the night. Thanks for all your help with the organising, you always replied to my emails quickly which I really appreciated. I would definitely recommend you if anyone asked!”
“All well received and thank you for a wonderful event, it was perfectly organised and we all felt very comfortable and had such a great time. Thank you for accommodating our smaller group and getting everything planned last minute. We would definitely recommend you to our friends!”
“Thank you SO MUCH for today we really loved it and the photos are fantastic! I was a bit nervous as I don’t really know any of the girls that well (I just knew they were all pretty opinionated and feminist!) but had really great feedback from the session – everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was actually my favourite part of the weekend and a great way to finish :)I’ll share the pics round and ask if anyone has specific feedback – I personally thought it was perfect :)”
“Now that I have properly recovered from the hen shenanigans, I wanted to let you know what a fabulous time we all had at the life drawing class! I thought your model Rob was great and a really good sport and you were a brilliant tutor; the hour and a half absolutely flew by! There was just the right mix of sauciness and actually learning something new. A thoroughly good time was had by all and I would highly recommend to anyone planning a hen party to consider this and especially you guys. Thanks also, for forwarding the photos so promptly. Thanks these are great and the girls are going to love them!! We had the best time! Everyone was raving about it well into the evening and into next morning!!”
“Thanks so much for the nude life drawing class. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and have all commented on how good looking the nude model was. It was a much classier nude drawing class than some of the others I was looking at and I’m very glad I picked your class if you would like me to write a review anywhere let me know where to write it. Thanks so much for the photos these are really fab. Everyone loves them.”
“Thank you so much for an amazing day. The photos are great and we all had such a good time on Saturday. The moustaches stayed on all day! We really enjoyed the life drawing session – it was the highlight of the day. I’m glad you advised to do 1.5hrs as this was a good amount of time. I would definitely recommend this to my friends and book again. The rest of the hen party went well from what we can all remember! Me and all the girls agree that we had such a brilliant time! You were both so lovely and we had so much fun.”
“Thanks so much, everyone had such a great day! Rosie was so impressed! The compliments keep flooding in.. and the pictures capture the session so well. Thank you for these and for the day..all hugely appreciated!”
“Thanks to you and Rob so much for Saturday. The session went absolutely wonderfully, Ellen and all the Hen’s have been raving about the afternoon. You ran that so well and the icebreaker with the hats and mustaches worked great. You really did have a lively bunch and we didn’t all know each other so that was a good way to set the mood. The session was loads of fun and didn’t overstep the mark. It was set at the perfect pitch for a Hen do. Again thanks for making Ellen’s day so special and funny!”
“Thank you for sending the brilliant photo’s! And a bigger thank you for hosting the drawing class. It was really good fun – the pace and pitch of the class was perfect. Everyone really enjoyed themselves. Thanks again for helping to make Saturday such a day to remember for everyone.”
“They are BRILLIANT photos – thank you so much. I can’t tell you how much everyone enjoyed it and all of the ladies said that it was the best “hen activity” they’d taken part in. It was such a fun but useful drawing class at the same time – we all definitely learned a thing or two (such as my sister really shouldn’t wear a giant wedding dress when being artistic!). The hens all commented that you were a fantastic teacher and made the experience unforgettable. Thanks again for everything, I will definitely be recommending you to anyone else planning hen do :-)”
“….thanks so much for the photos – they’re fantastic! I’m sure the others will absolutely love them. We all had a brilliant day, and your life-drawing class was definitely the highlight, thank you so much! It was really great to meet you both, and I will definitely be recommending you to all my friends.”
“….thank you so much for organising an amazing afternoon for us. We had such a great time, and many of the girls have said it was the highlight of the weekend. Mark was brilliant, and made us feel very welcome and was an excellent tutor, I think he managed to find an artist in most of us! Rob was also an amazing model, such a lovely guy and great looking too, they both worked really hard to make the session as enjoyable as possible.”
“….a roaring success, and what a way to start a hen do! Nan says she will remember it until her dying day, and was very enamored of Rob, if she’d been a few years younger…! It was the perfect mix of creative and cheeky – people were so enjoying challenging themselves to develop their drawings, and you kept the energy up by moving activities along. And Rob was: a picture! Thanks again – you helped make it such a special day for Ellie.”
“The class was brilliant: it got us laughing and talking! The warm up sketches and games were great- it loosened us up and got us putting charcoal to paper! Your model Rob was great- it’s not easy to model in front of a row of giggling hens! And amongst all the fun, you managed to squeeze in some excellent tuition…I think everyone was proud of their final drawings, which you deftly helped us to have a go at! We left with our pictures, lots of excellent photos, shared memories and a real sense of achievement…thank you to you both!”
“What a wonderful weekend we had. You set the weekend off so perfectly, nobody could stop talking about it (or about your model. Wow!) The Bride-to-be had an absolutely fantastic time, and so did we. Thank you so much, I’ll spread the word about you wherever I go!”
“…a huge thank you for Saturday, everyone had a really really great time! The class was run really well and everyone said afterwards what a great job you did in leading the class, and that they were now thinking of trying life drawing again! We’ll remember you for future hen parties and I would definitely recommend the class to anyone I knew who was planning a Hen Party.”
“Thank you so much for yesterday! It was brilliant I couldn’t have asked for it to better! Everyone loved it and had a brilliant time!”
“Just wanted to say an absolutely huge thank you for Saturday. Was just brilliantly done – you made us feel right at home, with exactly the right balance of having a giggle and genuinely learning something! We got the drawings out to show the stags when we met for a joint breakfast on Sunday and they were very impressed. Thanks again and can’t wait to see the photos!”
“It was a fantastic night and the team loved the life drawing, thanks again for the great organisation!”
