PARK Bank Holiday Weekender

During August bank holiday I became involved with the Really Now event at Camp & Furnace. Named PARK, it's purpose: to provide an alternative retreat from the usual drunken debauchery at Matthew St Festival and provide something different to the people of Liverpool. During this fellow printmaker Ana Cade and I decided to run our own print workshops during the event. Workshops which allowed participants to explore a range of print techniques learn the fundamentals behind pattern making and then create their very own Mask at the end with their newly learned skills. Alongside this I also designed banners to decorate the space during the weekend, which was also inspired by the Scandinavian theme, introducing folk art and pattern, tying together with the workshops.
