Workshops at The House Party will awaken your creative juices, teach you a new skill and give you an opportunity to exercise a spot of mindfulness.
Lucy Mahon is a London based artist and illustrator, who works across a mixture of mediums to create classic and playful pieces of art and illustration. Much of her work is based around rituals and places that bring about comfort, nostalgia, happiness or a feeling of home. Often rooted in the everyday, her collections are visual love letters to the world we live in. Lucy’s recent collaborations include Soho House, NET-A-PORTER and Smythson.
At The House Party, Lucy will be hosting two live personalised drop-in drawing sessions, giving you the opportunity to take something home with you.
Live Personalised Drawing
Lucy will be hosting two sessions in which she will be live drawing personalised postcard-sized illustrations tailored to guests. You will be able to choose from examples or brief Lucy on something totally new, leaving with a unique piece of art to take home or give to a loved one.
