Fashion Illustration at Sissinghurst

Join us for a live drawing session in the Rose Garden, led by artist Şeniz Jones and inspired by the love stories of Vita Sackville-West.

  • Booking essential

Immerse yourself in fashion illustration at our exclusive workshop hosted by artist Şeniz Jones inside our historic gardens.

Following a sold-out session at the V&A museum, SHOWstudio artist in residence Şeniz invites you to explore Vita Sackville-West's love stories through art in the serene backdrop of Sissinghurst Castle Garden.

Ticket holders will have the opportunity to draw a live model immersed within the beauty of the garden. Channelling the romantic essence of the rose garden, each model's pose and look crafted by Şeniz is a tribute to a poignant moment in Vita's journey with love.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to blend art and history, as Şeniz Jones brings the pages of Vita's passionate tales to life through the strokes of fashion illustration.

There are two separate bookable sessions. Session 1 will take place between 11:00- 13:00. Session 2 will take place between 14:00 - 16:00.

Alternative indoor arrangements will be made in the event of bad weather.

After the session, visitors wishing to remain in the garden can do so but must obtain an entry ticket from Visitor Reception if they leave and wish to re-enter. All workshop materials are included in the ticket price.
