The Bristol Graffiti Workshop

2 hrs

Bristol is world-famous for its graffiti, so let the endless eye-catching murals and striking art that covers our streets inspire the budding street artist within you.

In this workshop, hosted by an active and experienced graffiti writer, you will practice a variety of authentic graffiti styles and painting techniques, right here in the nations street art capital.

Your host Tom will show you how to get hands-on with a spray can, before you try both freehand and stencilling styles and techniques in a safe and controlled environment. With this newfound skill and knowledge, you'll get creative and design your own ‘piece’ ‘tag’ and 'throwup'

Tom will begin by sharing his portfolio, inspiration and tips on how to create attention-grabbing designs. You’ll get the opportunity to work both collaboratively on a large mural, aswell as individually on your own smaller piece. Your personalised canvas will then be yours to keep!

Tom will cover everything from different techniques, to paints, caps, lettering styles, the legalities of graffiti, and everything else you need to know.

Next up, you’ll get to grips with stencil cutting – Tom will weigh up the difference between stencil and freehand, suggesting original ideas for both.

A freehand spray paint demonstration will be followed by a chance to work collectively with the other guests on a large collaborative piece, overlaid with stencils.

This workshop is a lot of fun no matter what your age, so why not make the most of our special group rate – sign up as a family and create memories as well as art!

Safety talks will be provided throughout the session.
