In this practical workshop, we will be inspired by the colourful world of traditional Mexican art, creating hand drawn illustrations on paper using pens & pencils, in the distinctive style of Frida Kahlo and the votive paintings that inspired her work.

Bring a portrait photograph of yourself.

Also bring some photos of people, pets or mementos that reflect your life, plus one paragraph from a text or poem you are fond of.

All materials will be provided.

Suitable for all levels.


Workshop attendees get 10% off all food and hot drinks at the Café Bar.
