Workshops

On the Wall (morning session)

Thursday 11 April10.30 – 12.30

Learn how to print and paste a wallpaper with Foundation Press.

In the spirit of our current exhibition BUILDING, our new programme of activities encourage our visitors to connect with the process of building and making and get hands-on with live projects in our galleries.

In these workshops, with Foundation Press, we will skip to the end of the construction process, thinking about the surfaces which adorn spaces once they are built, creating wallpapers for our galleries, experimenting with different printing techniques and collage processes. Participants will have an active role in shaping our exhibition, with these initial prints marking the beginning of a printed wallpaper which will continue to grow through the run of the exhibition.
