Rosie Beard an illustrator and embroiderer based in London. She graduated from the London College of Fashion with a BA in Fashion Illustration.

Rosie has been involved in various feminist causes and movements; such as raising awareness for FGM, creating events for gender equal pay. She has worked with organisations such as ClitRock, leading to certain part of her artwork being donated to the causes and being held in exhibitions in the V & A, one of which was a patchwork of vaginas that will be on display at Circo.

Her work is full of character, continually playful and quite frequently erotic. Rosie tends to work in pen and ink as well as carving a niche for herself within the fashion industry for her freehand and sewing machine embroidery techniques.

Rosie now works as a freelance illustrator and embroiderer, selling her artwork on her website http://www.rosiebeard.com/ in the form of calendars, Christmas cards, cushions, phone cases and more.

She has previously worked with the likes of Piers Atkinson, being featured on the cover of British Vogue Magazine and Harper's Bazaar. Designs also being worn by Miley Cyrus, Gwen Stefani, Helena Bonham-Carter, Tim Burton, Paloma Faith, Lena Dunham, Marina Diamonds and Anna Dello Russo, and the list goes on.

Rosie has also worked with the amazing embroidery designer and founder of the British Fashion and Textiles Museum, Dame Zandra Rhodes.

Rosie has recently held an exhibition of her illustrations at the V & A Museum, and various art galleries in London. Hosting live life drawing classes in Soho and East London. She still keeps a close relationship with fashion but focuses mainly on illustrations and embroidery.

On the day, Rosie will be hosting a illustration and fashion drawing masterclass between 4pm and 5pm. The event will be free, but advanced booking is necessary. Please RSVP to julia@circo.co.uk

From 7pm, Rosie will be doing a talk on feminism today along with discussing her erotic artwork. All of Rosie's art pieces will be available for viewing and order from 6pm until 9pm to take on the night. There will be exclusive pieces available for this one night at Circo.

Hugo will speak and answer questions from 7 – 8:15 PM.
Hugo’s talk will be followed by a short meeting until 9pm for Bath for Europe supporters, charting our priorities for 2018 and will give you the chance to be directly involved in our “Final Push” campaign to help bring Brexit to a juddering halt.

Pencil To Paint: Jan - Mar 2018
17th January - 28th March

“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This ten week course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
Topics will include:
Line, measurement and proportion
Tonal value
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
16:30 - 18:00
Wednesdays: 17, 24, 31 January; 7, 21, 28 February; 7, 14, 21, 28 March 2018
