Children’s Workshop 12+ | Perfect Patterns and Super Symmetry


[ Children )

This event has passed.

Learn the art of linocut printing as you create a 3D kaleidoscopic artwork.

Polyhedra are 3-D geometrical figures that have fascinated philosophers, mathematicians and artists for millennia.

Get inspired by the repeating patterns and symmetrical images in our print room exhibition, Anne Desmet: Kaleidoscope.

In the studio, create your own pattern design and learn how to translate and carve your design into a linocut block. Ink up and experiment by printing your block as a repeating pattern onto coloured papers that we will make into cut and folded three-dimensional geometric paper forms.
