Cyanotype printing is a fun way to understand the principles of photography using sunlight by exposing paper with arranged objects placed on them. In this particular workshop, the artist asks the children (10-15) to collect plants and items that they forage from local hedgerows to create the patterns on the paper. The children then learn to develop the image creating two individual photographs and one large collective artwork
Mia Maxwell is the founder, head editor and producer of FEM Zine, an intersectional zine, platform and creative network which creates and showcases work by women, non-binary people, gender-nonconforming people and trans people.
Mia will teach us about the DIY culture that is taking over London's creative and political scenes and how to create your very own zine. The workshop involves guided hands-on DIY crafting from a huge range of materials, to make personal and collaborative zines. Each participant will go home with their own crafted version. All materials are provided and the workshop is free to attend. Mia also hosts Drink and Draw which discusses different topics including gender, intersectionality, art, mental health and much more. A different speaker hosts each event to facilitate fruitful discussion over relaxed drawing. (18+).
LINO CUT PRINTING
MUTTON FIST PRESS will create a series of four consecutive weekly linocut workshops for local groups in the community. The eventual aim is to provide each participant with the skills to create their own individual print and to continue this art-making process within their own community.
STAGED is a workshop project for young people aged between 8-11. Staged aims to give them an introduction to performance art as a means of expressing themselves and contextualising their experiences in the form of narrative play. Kaitlyn Walker Stewart hopes that by facilitating performance creates new opportunities for social interaction and confidence building. We hope the experience for this age group will be fun, exciting and something out of the ordinary. Staged will assist them in the development of their ideas and in doing so will expose the idea of performance art to the very young who may not be so familiar to this kind of art-making.
