When life-drawing and rope collide…

… beautiful things happen!

Drawn to Rope is a London-based life-drawing event where artists can draw or paint portraits of people in rope and doing rope. The event aims to highlight the beauty and aesthetic of rope and showcase the local(ish) regulars of the London rope community.

The event is organised by Pop-up Rope Events in collaboration with artist Dee Lu (aka SingingTree). It has been running since January on a monthly basis and continues to grow in popularity.

Below are some of the beautiful drawings that have come out of this event.

We look forward to host Drawn to Rope at Anatomie Studio in the future!

Discover the ropes with us this summer!

We have been told we are well on track for a June opening so we have started listing our first events on our Facebook Page! Click here for details.

We will open our doors for regular rope practice every Tuesday and Thursday evening (7-11pm) starting June 16th. Additionally we will host a Big Rope Jam one Saturday per month, as well as a free Rope Bottoming Roundtable over lunch before the Big Jam.

Everyone of all levels is welcome. Thursday evenings will be particularly beginner friendly, and anyone with an interest in rope bottoming (i.e. being inside the ropes) is welcome to come to our free monthly lunch hour meets.
