This practical drawing and printmaking course will examine issues of social justice and transformation. Inspired by our Keith Haring exhibition, this is your chance to experiment with graffiti drawing and relief printmaking techniques.
Create your own bold and playful imagery which shares a political message. Explore the art of stencilling, stamping, lino-printing and risograph techniques to make your own activist alphabet book.
This six-week course takes place every Friday from 10.30 - 16.00. It is led by printmaker Colette Whittington. No previous printmaking experience is necessary, all abilities are welcome.
