There's a chance to enjoy tea with a Dorset artist who is the last person alive to be sketched by Picasso.

Dorchester-Bayeux Society invites people to tea at the Brownsword Hall, Poundbury, with Dorothy Boyesen who posed as the subject for Picasso’s priceless work ‘Mother and Son’ in 1958 when her baby Alex was just a week old.

She and her artist husband Hjalmar, who worked with Picasso during the 1950s, had visited their famous friend and his partner Jacqueline Roque almost as soon as their baby was born.

Mrs Boyesen has painted an exact copy of The Bayeux Tapestry which she has donated to the Brownsword Hall.

An event will be held at the venue on Saturday, May 25 from 3pm-5pm with a talk at 3.15pm.

It will be followed by cream teas and cake. Admission by ticket only at £6 per person.

Purchase tickets in advance before May 18 from The Stitching House, Pummery Square Poundbury, The Garden Centre, Queen Mother’s Square, Poundbury or Tourist Information Centre, Dorchester Library, Charles Street.
