We have several regular models, but always welcome newcomers, so if you’d like to offer your services please email us

You could come and join a regular model for an hour and see if you enjoy it, in which case we’d be more than happy to book you on a regular basis.

Models are paid, and, can be collected from Marks Tey or Kelvedon train station if transport is required.

Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing.  Making your unknown known is the important thing.” Georgia O’Keeffe 

Host your own class/club

If you hold a club or a group activity which needs somewhere to meet, why not consider Prested? Along with our fitness classes, we also have a variety of different hobbies represented here at Prested.

Over the years we’ve hosted singing groups, well-woman workshops and yoga retreats to name but a few. We’re always happy to hear new suggestions, and hire of our studio space is very reasonable. Call us on 01376 573399 to have a chat about your requirements and see if we can make Prested work for you.

With an on-site cafe serving delicious meals and light snacks from 10.30pm – 3pm Monday to Sunday you can even build in a lunch element if you are planning on a full day workshop.
