You’re in rude health when… you know your tiger nuts from your ginger nuts. You get wilder with age. You’ve milked a tiger nut.

In celebration of launching a WILD card to our range of dairy free drinks: Tiger Nut Drink, we’re bringing you an equally wild activity – lizard lifedrawing at the Rude Health Cafe.

Lifedrawing you think of drawing something from life right? Probably a luscious nude male or female of some degree? Well flip your thinking. We’re drawing something from life, yes, but think something a little more wild. Move over muse, there’s a lizard in town.


Pick up a pencil, and come celebrate being creatively ‘in rude health’. Sip your way to the wild side with a Tiger Nut Cocktail whilst sketching Deano the Green Iguana, Hugo the Bosc Monitor and Koko & Stumpy, the bearded dragon duo. All from life. You don’t need to be Picasso to attend, all abilities welcome, from beginners to advanced and all the drawing materials are provided.

You’ll leave having tried Tiger Nut Drink, made a mantelpiece worthy picture and having learnt about the conservation issues affecting large lizards around the world. Art with a side of eco and a dash of drink. Grrr-eat.

Feline hungry? What about food? Don’t worry, there will be a full spread of snacks and nibbles including The Tiger Nut Company’s tiger nuts, Ember Snack’s bloomin’ breathtaking biltong, Eat Grub’s edible insect bars to accompany your Tiger Nut Drink Cocktail. What a killer combo.

Jennie Webber founder of Wild Lifedrawing Classes and a London-based artist, felt something was missing from city life. She wanted to help reconnect bustling city life with nature through creativity and to inspire people to protect our planet and it’s animals.

Jennie only works with the finest animal handlers, sanctuaries, charities and organisations to put on these events. All the animals are happy around humans and comfortable in different environments and are always accompanied by experienced handlers, their welfare is of highest priority. These lizards will be coming from a reptile centre and sanctuary that rescues and re-homes unwanted reptiles and cruelty cases across the South East of England. Money from ticket sales is put towards their continued hard work for the conservation and protection of the animals and to care for additional rescue animals and the rehoming of unwanted or mistreated pets.
