Print Studio, 26 Jan, 2-5pm
Free, drop-in for 8-15 year olds
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.
Why create one when you can create many? Come along to the studio and try your hand at printmaking. Learn how to make single elements to print again and again to form a background for a storyboard – a set of images that tell a story. Make unique one-off prints with mono-printing and multiple images with press printing – applying pressure to an inked surface to transfer an image to paper.
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.
