THE SESSION

In this session, we are embarking on an ambitious endeavour. Our primary task will be to collectively create a long composition on the wall, centered around the theme of a river. Utilising stencils, stamps, and hand-drawn elements, we’ll come up with a tapestry of interconnected characters born from simple shapes, and enriched with decorative border elements. Each participant will take away a section of the collaborative work. 

MATERIALS

For this session we have a prescribed colour scheme, because we are making one collaborative image, but we will provide acrylic paint for it.

1) Line drawing tools of your choice (e.g., graphite pencils)

2) Some denser paper to cut stencils from (about 120gsm is fine, half used, scrap-paper is great for this, or old magazine paper, if you prefer something that’s easier to cut)kitchen sponges

3) A sharp utility or X-Acto knife and/or scissors

4) A small cutting mat (A4 or A5 size) might be useful, but we can provide some to share

5) a black ink pad 

6) a hole puncher (if you happen to have one)

7) some new erasers - 3 or 4 (vinyl erasers are better)
