Come along to a fun and thought provoking workshop which looks at alternative approaches to self portraiture. Explore seminal examples of alternative self portraiture and ideas about mapping your own personality by artists like Grayson Perry and Nigel Peake, then have a go at making your own map.
Some materials will be provided, however if there’s a particular media you prefer to work with please feel free to bring your own materials along.
The workshop will take place on Monday 14th March at the Tollcross Community Centre. 12.30pm to 4.30pm — tea and coffee provided!
The workshop is totally FREE and all are welcome. If you want to be involved please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest!
