Josephine Birch

Workshop – Concertina Books

Date: Thursday 19th September 2019
Venue: Mini Marquee
Time: 9.30am – 12pm
Tickets: SOLD OUT £30 inc. materials

A unique opportunity to design your own traditional concertina book based on Alice Oswald’s poem Dart, using a variety of techniques including stamping, collaging, drawing and stencils, exploring the relationship between word and image.

Artist Josie Birch will start you off with some fun drawing exercises to ease you in, then you’ll start to make quick drawings in response to these words. No experience necessary and you will be helped along to use a variety of methods for creating your final work with stencils, printing and drawing.

A very creative experience and perfect for absolute beginners or practising artists to play with notions of narrative, text, image and storytelling.
