4 Elements Graffiti Workshop
September 18 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until December 17, 2021
Bristol is world-famous for its graffiti, so let the endless eye-catching murals and striking art that covers our streets inspire the budding street artist within you.
In this workshop, hosted by an active and experienced graffiti writer, you’ll get an in-depth insider’s perspective on the culture and history of graffiti, right here in the UK’s graffiti capital.
Your host Tom will show you how to get hands-on with a spray can, before you try freehand styles and techniques in a safe and controlled environment. With this newfound skill and knowledge, you’ll get creative and design your own ‘piece’ or ‘tag’.
Tom will begin by sharing his portfolio, inspiration and tips on how to create attention-grabbing designs. You’ll get the opportunity to design your name using one of Tom’s pre-designed templates, or your own, if you’re feeling adventurous.
Tom will cover everything from different techniques, to paints, lettering styles, the legalities of graffiti, and everything else you need to know.
Next up, you’ll get to grips with stencil cutting – carefully drawing around the outline of your hands and cutting out the card. Tom will weigh up the difference between stencil and freehand, suggesting original ideas for both.
A spray paint demonstration will be followed by a chance to work collectively with the other guests on a large collaborative piece, overlaid with stencils. This will be dismounted at the end of the workshop so every guest can take a section of the artwork home.
This workshop is a lot of fun no matter what your age, so why not make the most of our special group rate – sign up as a family and create memories as well as art!
Safety talks will be provided throughout the session.
