Inspired by artists such as Mel Bochner (the picture shown), David Shrigley, Fiona Banner and Ben Eine, join in to create your own word-art canvas to take home using meaningful language and colours like never before.

This one-day workshop is perfect for learners of any level to enjoy a fun painting experience in a relaxed atmosphere. The tutor, Hayley, will take you through exercises to identify meaningful words through association games, blackout poetry and stream-of-consciousness writing. From there you will transfer your word designs to canvas and create art that reflects your own unique view. On this workshop, all equipment and materials will be provided, so you just have to bring yourself and maybe even a friend or two.
