Ptarmigan operated in Tallinn from 2011-2014. This website exists as an archive of its activities during this time. We no longer maintain any presence in Tallinn, but some people involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary in Helsinki.
An evening class in figure writing with a nude model. The class will cover a series of short, 10 minute poses to get the ink running as well as some longer poses, in which the writers can experiment with their preferred techniques in greater depth.
During the evening we will explore writing the figure in black & white; tonal writing; colour; chiaroscuro text; the figure in their environment and the figure in motion.
Participants should bring with them writing tools of their choice (pen and paper, typewriter, laptop...) though pens and paper will also be available during the class for those who require them.
