We Are Family Summer Workshops | Paper Jackets

Thursday, 27th August 2020 to Sunday, 1st November 2020, 13:00 to 17:00
Age guidance 5+
Free online, small donations welcome

Hassan Hajjaj’s artworks are characterised by an explosion of colour, pattern and appropriated brand logos.  Let’s Make Art invite children to emulate and compliment his style by doing the same. Using a Dura-weave paper jacket as a blank canvas children are invited to decorate their wearable garment with stencils and colourful specialist pens and paper cut outs. Just like Hassan’s work marries Morrocan culture with different pop art influences and recognisable brands, can you incorporate any brands, architecture or designs that are rooted in Bristol’s communities?
