Over these four workshops we will create banners and flags to tell stories about who we are. Imagine if an alien visitor landed on your doorstep, how would you tell them who you are and where you come from? Using drawing and collage we will invent imaginary aliens and then create banners and flags that communicate stories of our lives to them.
In these workshops you will learn:
– How to make banner and flag
