We Face Forward - Print workshop at the Gallery of Costume, Platt Fields, Manchester

I had a lovely time yesterday working at the Gallery of Costume, creating prints inspired by 'We Face Forward's' photos from the Mali Photography Archive. Workshop participants spent some time looking at and drawing photos to get ideas for patterns and prints before doing some simple but effective mono-printing and block printing. It was also great to work to live music being performed in the gallery. Thanks to the volunteers for their hard work! [gallery columns="2"]

Tomorrow, there's more fun to be had at Manchester Art Gallery's 'Junk Palace' - an open-ended exploration of materials creating journey necklaces, accessories and an installation space (responding to the work of Pascale Marthine Tayou).
