Returning by popular demand, the unique performative life-drawing Gladdy Drawing Club teams up once again with Bondi Festival! 

Gladdy Drawing Club bring their iconic inclusive and body-positive life drawing classes to Bondi, with a special Festival twist. Each event across the season boasts its own secret ingredient, with themed line-ups featuring guest artists portraits and talking heads.

Stepping outside of their regular offering at the Lord Gladstone Hotel, Bondi Fest x Gladdy Drawing Club is a class and performance all in one. 

GDC is a safe space for women and the LGBTQIA+ community, committed to making sure everyone can have a wildly fun time but still feel comfortable, whoever they are. An incredible environment in which to have a yarn with Sydney’s best artists, designers, animators, architects and more – while also working on your drawing practice in a warm and uncompetitive setting.  

Special GDC merch designed by Andrew Yee will be available at the event! 


Thursday 11 July 6pm Bondi Festival x Gladdy Drawing Club: Andrew Yee.
Sunday 14 July 5pm Bondi Fest x Gladdy Drawing Club: Wendy Sharpe.

Meet the Creators:

Hosted by Total Bore and Noni Cragg, Gladdy Drawing Club run regular events at the Lord Gladstone Hotel, with new models weekly. Catering to all levels of experience, the atmosphere of GDC is much more like a drawing club than a formal class. Making Gladdy Drawing Club a safe place for female, queer and non-binary artists is GDC’s number one priority. They create the perfect space to come and draw, share and have fun.
