Print Jam

Saturday 5th May 2018
12 - 5pm, free entry

Out of the Blueprint are back again for round two of Print Jam, with a jam-packed day of workshops and activities. On Saturday 5th May, Reconfigure will be hosting Life Drawing in the rehearsal room, with Topaz Pauls on hand to offer expert advice if you need it. The Comic Collective will return to give you loads of mind-bending tips to make your drawings come to life. We’ll be joined by a secret superhero for the Superhero life drawing, with loads of exciting poses to practice your sketching skills. Or get stuck in with the DIY zine club and have a go at making your own publication – with free Risograph demonstrations throughout the day.

Drop in, get creative and print stuff!
