About the event

ELSC Host, Director and Jack of All Trades Samantha Sun is going to usher us back into an Autumn/Winter season of Life Drawing splendor! Expect neon pink lingerie from our resident pocket rocket!


TOULOUSE LAUTREC was famous for his life-long love affair with the sex workers of Montmartre, Paris, including his long-term muse, Jane Avril. Many of his paintings depicted the women whose erotic labour has long gone unacknowledged by the art world. It's only right that ELSC have a residency at the venue named after a male artist whose career was deeply intertwined with sex workers' labour. We are London's ONLY life drawing class blending the richness of nude models in Art history with the thrill of modern strip clubs and a healthy dollop of radical politics!


ELSC are a collective of strippers working to smash stigma, fight for better working conditions and repackaging our erotic labour to provide meaningful employment to our community. Life Drawing With ELSC references the rich history of artists musing upon their nude models, dancers, strip-tease artists, lovers and sex-workers to create works of art. Expect high octane pole tricks, sultry striptease, flexible floor-work, freestyle and some surprise audience participation to enrich your life drawing experience. All levels of experience are welcome, same for genders and orientations.

EAST LONDON STRIPPERS COLLECTIVE is a network of feisty, feminist and fiercely independent women committed to supporting and promoting self-organisation among strippers, challenging stigma around sex work, standing up to exploitation and fighting for improved safety and harm-reduction in the wider sex industry.

ELSC are dedicated to building worker led strategies, creating opportunities and growth for performers outside of the exploitative business model of a regular strip club. Since 2014, ELSC have grown a viable and sustainable business that is run entirely by dancers/ex-dancers themselves. From pop-up strip club parties, to public talks, art exhibitions and life drawing classes, ELSC remain an autonomous organisation in charge of creating their own working conditions and supporting members of their community.
