At Waverley Mall, 3/48 Waverley Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1BQ. Find us on the lower level, in between Anime Republic and New Look
Fresh Fruit Pop Up is an open creative space for 8–15 year olds to drop-in, make art and chat to peers.
In this block of sessions we will challenge your expectations of what drawing can be and make the space your drawing studio, creating new work to take home. Choose to work on a large or small scale, experimenting with a range of different materials and techniques including pens, pencils and charcoal, as well as making your own drawing tools.
This is the third block of art workshops and artist Louise Fraser and Intern Brooke Milliken have been collecting your ideas about creative activities for the space. Studio Takeover responds to these ideas, exploring drawing; sculpture; printmaking; and a collaboration with Anime Republic focusing on anime – the animation style originating in Japan – and manga Japanese comic art.
Sessions take place in a new dedicated unit at Waverley Mall during The Fruitmarket Gallery’s building development. You’ll be supported to take over the space and develop ideas for creative programmes for young people in the new Fruitmarket building when it opens in 2020.
