13th September 

Lfw workshops

Head to the Mandrake hotel for a series of London fashion week workshops. Mandrake has teamed up with Fashion School Central Saint Martins to launch a City Wide Celebration workshop series ahead of London Fashion Week.

As part of the Artist In Residence programme, The Mandrake hotel has teamed up with Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, to host a series of workshops on 2D-3D pattern making and fashion illustration. 

Experienced tutors Louis Loizou and Joshua Beaty will teach guests the techniques involved in these subjects, to be put to use in their own creative endeavours. Bookings can be made on The Mandrake's website.

Aside from the fun of the workshops. The surroundings are something you have to see at least once. The Mandrake is no regular hotel. This luxury hotel is a hidden oasis in London with its very own unique style. 

The Jurema terrace at the Mandrake hotel is the global Winner of Outdoor Space - at the ahead Awards and it's easy to see why. Even the restrooms are an Instagram moment at this five star hotel.
