Goodspace is above The Lord Gladstone Hotel, 115 Regent St, Chippendale NSW.
Unfortunately, there is no lift and the space is not wheelchair accessible.
The number one thing to know if you haven't been here before - access to the gallery is from the staircase behind the bar... like you literally have to walk past the bartender to get to the stairs. Gets everyone!
Guests are announced Tuesday, the week before their session. Tickets sell incredibly quickly and we often sell out on presale before we've announced the guest. Past guests include Wendy Sharpe, Abdul Abdullah, Blak Douglas and heaps more.
This session caters to all levels of experience. The atmosphere of GDC is much more like a drawing club than a formal class. This is a great place to come and paint, share and have fun!
Your ticket now includes a free drink from Young Henrys, Newtown. Options vary due to seasonal availability. But you can usual expect a few of the usual suspects to be around: Young Henrys Natural Lager, Newtowner, Stayer and Young Henrys Cloudy Cider.
Making Gladdy Drawing Club a safe place for our female, queer and non-binary artists is our number one priority. Coming to GDC for the first time you should feel assured that this safe and inclusive environment will be promoted and protected by Total Bore and The Lord Gladstone at all times. If you experience anything at all that makes you feel uncomfortable at GDC, or in the broader life drawing community. Please let us know, and we will do everything we can to help.
The kitchen at the Lord Gladstone open for dinner at 5:30pm and closes at 9pm. Cop a look at the delicious menu here.
For 6pm ticket holders there is a Happy Hour 4-6pm. For the night owls the bar will stay open 'til midnight.
