Mark Couzens
Gobo
Focal Point Gallery Foyer

Create a Gobo (a template which fits onto a light source, in this case a camera) with artist Mark Couzens. Have fun making shapes using cameras and giant stencils to build imagery that you can print and take home with you. Bring your own cameras, along with USB cables/SD cards to enable the uploading of your creations onto the Big Screen.

Serena Korda
Rotate, Reverse, Flip, Repeat!
Focal Point Gallery Project Space

Artist Serena Korda will be leading screen printing workshops using a graphic inspired by William Morris designs and David Mabb’s exhibition ‘Announcer’. Have fun learning new techniques and create your own family print to take home.

Sophie Sleigh-Johnson
Expanded Text
Focal Point Gallery 2

Participants will be encouraged to consider text as imagery and have fun building ideas into collage. Sessions will be led by Sophie Sleigh-Johnson, Associate Publications Officer, and for additional inspiration you will have the opportunity to view a facsimile copy of The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer, published in 1896 by Kelmscott Press, founded by William Morris.
