A little while ago we were approached by the BBC to advise and participate in Mary Beard's new series 'Shock of the Nude' - of course we were delighted! The series first aired in the spring but we are super-excited to see it being shown again now on BBC 4.
In the first programme her provocative two-part essay, classicist and broadcaster Mary Beard takes on the nude
As she says ‘There are an awful lot of naked bodies in western art, and they are often causing trouble even now.’ 
In a life-drawing class, Mary joins a hen party as they draw a naked male. It’s a lot of fun - but for centuries would have been impossible, as women were forbidden to study a naked man in this way. 
We had a fantastic group of hens who really embraced the experience with our team Julian & Penny, it was a long day of filming but there were an awful of lot laughs and it's certainly will be be one hen party to remember!!
Now we can't show you everything you'll need to watch the episode for that.. but there a few teaser photos below for you..
Here's what the hens had to say ...
You too can have your very own life drawing nude party with us.. just choose your party type and request a quote.. or come and have a chat with us fairygodmothers@henswithpens.com.
Don't forget the whole series is streaming here   'Shock of the Nude'  - it would be a shame to miss it!!
