Ever wanted to learn how to paste up your artwork on a wall or other object? (legally of course!)
Come along to our two hour workshop run by street artist Barek to learn the often misunderstood art of paste ups!
Wheatpaste has been used since ancient times for various arts and crafts such as book binding, decoupage, collage, and papier-mâché. It is also made for the purpose of adhering paper posters to walls and other surfaces (often in graffiti). Closely resembling wallpaper paste, it is often made by mixing roughly equal portions of flour and water and heating it until it thickens, or by smearing cooked rice into a paste.
Bring along any work that you would like to paste-up onto the Bird Gallery & Studio Laneway. Paper, glue & sharpies will be available for use as part of the cost of the workshop, to make new works also.
5-7pm Thursday the 12th of September.
Please note: The building where Bird Gallery and Studio/ Bean Cafe is situated is heritage listed and they are responsible for ensuring only non destructive works are made on the walls. It is important that everyone involved in this workshop is aware only non destructive works on the walls are permitted. No tagging, spray-paint, poscas etc are allowed.
