ANGELA CARTER: THE BLOODY CHAMBER FEMINIST FAIRYTALES

  • The Book Club Leonard Street London, England, EC2A United Kingdom (map)

Art Macabre hearts Angela Carter. And we know a lot of you do too. We revisit our favourite macabre feminist fairytale author to convey our take on some of her classic stories. With special guest model performer AMY KINGSMILL who will pose red-caped and nude to portray scenes from stories including Company of Wolves, Wolf Alice and The Bloody Chamber.

Enjoy drawing dramatic and bold tableaux from Carter's gloriously dark and sensual feminist retelling of fairytale and myth. Create your own illustrations to these tales, as excerpts are read out.

Drawing materials and paper provided including vintage book pages to collage with. Bring red pens/ink if you wish. There shall be drops of blood spilt...but it may not be the blood of those you expect it to be...TICKETS £15 adv here or more on the door
