Join us to learn about the history of our wonderful Jewellery Quarter Cemeteries and to explore the creative medium of lino printing! A fun art workshop for ages 12-18.
Our 3 hour workshop will involve a visit to the cemeteries to discover the use of symbols and typography around the site before sketching those that excite you the most. We will then return to the Hive to learn about the process of lino printing in a hands-on workshop by BCU graduates, Collette McCann and Beth Ingleton, who are avid lino printers!
You are then invited to design and print your own lino designs which will be displayed at the JQ train station in October to encourage more people to visit the cemeteries and learn about the rich history and heritage surrounding these places.
No experience necessary as a demonstration will be given and a small class size means full support can be provided! Perfect for those who like to be creative and want to try a new medium and discover more about Birmingham’s history.
Part of this workshop takes place inside but places are limited to ensure social distancing. Face coverings will be required in the makers studio (unless exempt), hand sanitiser will be available. Free places available for young people who live in the Jewellery Quarter & Soho or Ladywood wards.
