Three creative processes happening in one space. You, the artists, drawing. Your model, posing and performing… and improvising musicians playing live music. Swelling and swooping through the room, let melodies and harmonies lilt and loop, driving the energy behind your drawings.

Regular Reconfigure happens twice a week — see further down the blurb for Monday/Wednesday info.
These monthly sessions are held in Summerhall's Anatomy Lecture Theatre. Tuesdays are unthemed: straight up life drawing with a variety of models, and formed by the mood of the music. It's £10ish (£6-10 suggested depending on your wage) on the door, which opens at 6.40ish, or buy a ticket online to come to the front and skip the queue, tick yourself off, and get a good seat. (The cut off for a guaranteed seat if you've bought an online ticket is 6.50pm). The vibe is chilled out; a relaxed space where the obligations of the outside world don't exist. You can bring in some chilled bevvies from the bar. Or herb tea if you like. (Brownie points for bringing a keep cup!). There are materials to buy and borrow (including boards) and we welcome all ages and stages. If you need drawing advice just ask me (Topaz) (or whoever is sitting next to you- make a new friend!).

Here's some info on what else we get up to:
On Mondays we host drawing at the Pianodrome studio at Custom House in Leith, *8-10pm* (doors 7.40), with a live improv [multi] piano accompaniment (sometimes more!), for £6-10 donation (as you can afford) with BYOB and a donations bar.: Pianodrome: life drawing ¦ live music.

On Wednesdays we're at Summerhall's Anatomy Lecture Theatre again, 7-9pm, it's £6 on the door or buy online tickets as described above. Our models pose within a lightly themed set-up: nude enough to engage simply with the figure, yet embellished enough to explore the themed approach if inspiration strikes. Check out the full schedule of themes at facebook.com/reconfigurative/events.

Sometimes we run extravanganza collaborations and tutored sessions with creatives from far and wide. Sometimes more, sometimes less experimental, always something new, different, surprising. Materials are included in the ticket price for these sessions, and I provide a bar (or tea station!) for additional tipples, and sometimes some nibbles to soak it all up. You can subscribe to the events to be notified of such happenings.

Looking forward to welcoming you at some nude situation soon
