STICK IT ON! Vintage Collage Skateboard Art Workshop (with Twydall P)
06/12/2022 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm£27 – £34
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 VINTAGE COLLAGE 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, get stuck in, and get your hands on the decks…
Tuesday 6th December, 18:30-21:30
Our “Creative Deckmaster” for the night is Twydall P, a Brighton-based mixed-media artist, puppeteer and poet. He works mainly with analogue collage where he blends his playful humour with his love of history, science, nature and symbolism to create striking, yet simple, artworks. You can find out more about Twydall here.
He will help you find your inner master collager, whilst giving you practical help, advice, ideas and inspiration to get you leaving the workshop with a fully-fledged, beautiful skate deck. We’ll have oodles and oodles of vintage collage materials (helpfully sorted into categories so you can find what you need, when you need it! Ask for help, or just crack-on with it over a drink or two (yes, there’s a bar! 🍺🥂🍹) Come by yourself, or come with friends – we’ll all enjoy a good natter over the paper snipping 🙂
This workshop will provide a creative lovely break from all the Christmas eating and drinking – come in enjoy the escape from all the over-the-top Christmas themed stuff! (Although if you do need a Christmas excuse, this will be THE PLACE to make a bespoke present for someone special).
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 sticking pro, or a complete beginner, we’ll get you trying out different techniques, and thinking about how to use different types of source material to create the effects you’re after. Twydall will be helping you along with hints and tips to create a unique skate deck that tells a story (and the gallery upstairs is on hand to provide any extra inspiration you might need).
There will be vintage stuff. Lots of vintage…
We’ll be focussing on using vintage print materials to create your collage skate deck, but there will also be lots of other materials on hand to ensure you can create the effects you want to achieve with your decks. We’ve shown you some of Twydall’s work here, but the possibilities (and style options!) are endless!
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 glue and other mucky things, you might want to wear things you don’t mind getting dirty!
🙂 Tickets: £27 / £34 🙂
