Fluoro-Doodle-Decks: Skateboard Art Workshop (with Barrie J Davies)

Part of Conclave’s special week of events for DECK THE HALLS celebrating the archetypal symbol of urban street and youth culture: THE SKATEBOARD.

Alongside a group show from local artists showing their original (and limited-edition) artworks created on the humble skateboard deck, we are hosting a hands-on FLUORO DOODLE creative evening workshop in our basement events space in central Brighton (under the main gallery). This will be a fun, sociable, and hands-on creative event where you can get inspired, and get your hands on the decks…

We’ll give you the deck, and get doodling with…

Wednesday 7th December, 18:30-21:30

Our “Creative Deckmaster” for the night is Barrie J Davies, a Brighton-based urban contemporary pop artist. He makes fun paintings, prints and sculptures that have found their way into private and public collections nationally and worldwide. You can find out more about Barrie here.

He will help you find your inner master doodler, whilst giving you practical help, advice and inspiration to get you leaving the workshop with a fully-fledged, fluoro skate deck. We’ll be cracking open the paints, pens, spray-paints, stencils (and SMILES!) and you’ll be able to try different media and techniques on your own deck. Ask for help, or just crack-on with it over a drink or two (yes, there’s a bar!  🍺🥂🍹)

Fluoro-Doodle-Decks: Skateboard Art Workshop (with Barrie J Davies)

There are no rights or wrongs for this workshop – the only rule is to get involved and give it a go! Whether you’re a master draughtsman, or a complete beginner, we’ll get you trying out different doodle media, from pens and paintbrushes, to spray-paints and stencils. If you like it, TRY IT.  Barrie will be helping you along with hints and tips for how to create punchy, striking POP doodles on your skate deck, and the gallery upstairs is on hand to provide any extra inspiration you might need.

There will be fluoro. Lots of fluoro… 
We’ll be focussing on fluoro and bright, POP colours, but there will also be lots of other materials there to ensure you can create the effects you want to achieve with your deck doodles. BIG AND BLOCKY or small and detailed, we’ll have the tools for the job!

ALL MATERIALS AND EQUIPMENT WILL BE PROVIDED (Including a new, full-sized blank skateboard deck for each participant)

You’re welcome to bring your own ideas and source materials (if there’s something in particular you fancy doing) or just come as you are, and we’ll load you up with ideas and options on the night!

As this is a hands-on workshop with paint and other mucky things, you might want to wear things you don’t mind getting dirty and painty!

 🙂 Tickets: £27 / £34 🙂
