exhibition 'Everyday Images' to inspire ideas in papier mâché.
Papier Mâché Art runs over two sessions; make your
work in the first week and decorate it in the second week. Bring
your own overalls.

workshop to kick-start your ideas in anything from fiction, poetry,
memoir or playscript. Taking scenes from the colourful 'Everyday
Images' exhibition, have fun developing the undiscovered stories
waiting in your imagination!
