About the event

Join us for a unique creative experience at Leighton House, where you will engage in life drawing with a twist, by sketching and exploring the beauty of reptiles, including snakes, lizards, tarantulas, and other fascinating creatures.


Our expert handlers from Zoolab will provide intriguing insights into the world of these creatures, let you get up close, and set the scene for a memorable drawing opportunity with a special connection to the legacy of Frederic Leighton’s art and the historic house.

Zoolab have over 20 years of experience of delivering learning with animal encounters and prioritise animal welfare. Their animals are happy, healthy and well-adjusted, and are encouraged to display their natural behaviours.
