During this workshop you shall produce  a concise body of work utilising techniques associated with found images and materials. All materials are provided, however to maximise your experience if you would like to bring any found ephemera, old newspapers, old stamps bus tickets any thing at all that you personally find interesting visually and that you are prepared to destroy and use, please do so.
