Make Your Own Mini-Mural
Sunday 8 April, 10.30am
In this creative workshop you will learn about the ‘Survival Techniques’ street art project founded by mural artist Naomi Edmondson, and develop and illustrate some of your own phrases and reminders that help you to feel good. Using the most personally resonant action or phrase from your list, you will create your own typographic artwork on paper to take home with you. Naomi will be on hand to give guidance on dynamic lettering and use of colour.
Survival Techniques is a street art project that promotes hope and optimism and brings a little light to people having a dark day. The typographic paintings include phrases such as ‘Hide Less, Chat More’, ‘Talk to Someone, Anyone, About Anything’ and ‘Now is the Time’. The project started two years ago as Naomi wrote a list of things that always made her feel a bit better, a reminder of what to do when feeling low, and has since seen her design walls and exhibit across London.
