A nude model who poses for art students in still life classes has gone on strike in protest over the coldness of a college room used for the lessons.
A faulty air conditioning unit has been blamed for the cold
Model Debs Jackson said a faulty air conditioning unit in the room at Derby College produces a strong cold wind which blows across the class.
She said she had been left with a stiff neck and sore shoulders because of the cold and has withdrawn from posing.
A college spokesman said new heaters were being installed.
Ms Jackson, from Tutbury, said: "Your muscles have to be warm and when you've got a gale force nine blowing around from an air conditioning unit, which is terribly temperamental, you feel it.
"Certainly when I withdrew from the college I left with a stiff neck and sore shoulders."
Keith Logan, from the college, said: "We're enlarging the size of the room so it's more accessible for students.
"We're including more heaters and we're controlling the number of students who work in there.
"We've been doing [still life drawing] for 500 years in Western Europe so I'm sure we will get it sorted," he said.
