Legend has it that if the ravens should ever leave the fortress walls, the Tower and the kingdom will fall. In this unique event we’ll explore mythology, folklore and true tales of the Tower’s famous feathered guardians; the ravens.
Draw these magnificent birds up close as they pose alongside the Tower’s very own Ravenmaster.
Guest artist Christian Sparrow will help you capture their likeness in charcoal.
About Art Macabre
Art Macabre injects a lethal dose of theatricality and curiosity into drawing by creating immersive drawing events in unique spaces that bring together elements of narrative, performance, music and theatrical themes.
"Imaginative, intimate and inspirational, Art Macabre events are everything that you could want from a drawing event - or any night out, for that matter." Katie Antoniou, Time Out.
