Are you a team, group, club or collective? Would you like to explore what it means to work together and collaborate as a group?

Join artists Long Distance Press in a free, hands-on creative workshop exploring collaboration, care and ways of working together.

The workshops will include drawing, collage and Risograph printing to create a collaborative poster by the end of each session. Free refreshments will be provided; and participants will be paid for their time and contribution.

All are welcome, no prior experience is neccessary.

The outcomes of these collaborative workshops will contribute to a new, year-long public art commission at Tanner Lane in Paddington Square.
