Poster Making with Jenna Pippett - Downstairs

Using existing design elements, participants will be invited to modernize a vintage-poster using digital collage and their own image.  As an artist Jenna is interested in recollections of the past. In this workshop the posters act as a framework allowing participants to access a historical event and create interchangeable ways of viewing and participating in the past.

Automatic Drawing - Upstairs

Let instinct guide you in this automatic drawing session. Be inspired by Tom O'Hern's 1000 drawings from the end of the world which feature "mechanical monsters, future mega fauna, burning trees, skulls, weeds and disease. These drawings are new hieroglyphs - ancient emojis to be dug up in a million years and deciphered without a Rosetta stone."
