The legacy of Leigh Bowery, performance artist and fashion muse extraordinaire, will be explored, as well how character can be conveyed through design. Participants are encouraged to look at Leigh’s work, respond to art inspired by their practice in a guided visit to REBEL: 30 Years of London Fashion, and make unique mask creations.

In the afternoon session, the outcomes will then be styled as masks or accessories featured on a model in a SketchSesh boudoir life drawing session as focal points for an immersive creative experience, addressing illustration and its relationship with make-up and queerness.
