The FREE Workshops
As part of the project, Recoat (Amy Whiten & Ali Wyllie) will lead four workshops over two days. The workshops are FREE to attend but places are very limited (only 10 spaces in the morning and 10 in the afternoon – and a number of places are already booked) so if you would like to attend we’d recommend moving quickly. You can register by clicking on one of links below and filling out your details. It is first come first served.
Workshop Format - A session where local residents can come together to explore the mural themes and content to feedback to the professional artists who will paint large-scale murals across the region. Learn the process of planning a large-scale painting and paint using mural techniques and materials on boards you can take away with you. The theme of the murals is ‘HOME’, so if you have stories, sketches, drawings, photos, songs, poems, or ideas relating to this please bring them along.
The workshops are for everyone in the community over the age of 12 (due to the use of spraypaint). Please wear old warm clothes that you can paint outdoors in. If you know someone who may be interested then please forward on this information.
Booking (which is essential)
