FIRST FORTNIGHT: Mark Making Workshop with Martina McDonald

Monday 16th January, 2023 - 19:30

Book Now

Join visual artist Martina McDonald for an evening of mark making. In the workshop you will be encouraged to create a mess with art materials!

The practice of mark making is simple, fun and often calming. Martina will guide you through a range of ways to create different marks and textures on paper. These elements can then be collaged together, or simply just created for the fun of it. Zero experience necessary, curiosity is encouraged.

Participants are reminded that this is a messy workshop! Please wear suitable clothing/apron.
