Event Details

Join us to celebrate our British Wildlife at The Holly Bush, just a stone's throw away from Hampstead Heath – a vital area of nature which is home to grass snakes, moles, foxes, hedgehogs, six species of bats, over 180 bird species, a quarter of Britain’s spiders, 25 species of butterfly, 18 species of dragonfly and damselfly and 500 species of fungi. Of course we won't be able to draw all these animals in one evening, but we will be drawing some related species as a way to learn about our natural ecosystem in the UK. We will be drawing African Pygmy hedgehogs, mice, rabbits, ferrets, frogs, snakes, snails and spiders! And if that's not enough, we'll be telling you all about the habitats, hunting habits and current conservation statuses of these animals, and what we can do to help them.

10% of each ticket sold will be donated to the Royal Parks Foundation – who protect the wildlife of London's green spaces whilst maintaining and developing the biodiversity and sustainability of the parks. In particular, the charity have a dedicated team that are trying to protect and preserve London's last breeding population of Hedgehogs.

The drawing class is open to all, from beginners to advanced. All drawing materials are supplied, including paper, but please feel free to bring colours or any other specific media you might like to use. Drawing tips and guidance will be provided throughout the session. The aim of these drawing classes is to inspire a sense of appreciation and understanding for the animals and their conservation in the wider world.

Wild Life Drawing is working with the finest animal handlers, sanctuaries and organisations to put on these events. All the animals that attend the sessions are comfortable and happy in different environments and around people, their welfare is our highest priority. These animals will be attending with two highly experienced animal handlers that not only care for these animals but also re-home other unwanted exotic pets or rescue animals. These animals will be in specially designed runs, with plenty of enrichment activities and hidden treats to keep them occupied and happy for the time they are with us. All animals go through a 'Heath and Happiness' test before attending any external events, and are rewarded with their favourite foods.
