Comics and Visual Poetry: The Personal is Political with Peony Gent

Sat 14 September
10:30 am
- 4:00 pm


Drawing inspiration from Raymond Briggs’ ability to create work that is simultaneously personal and political, and individual yet universal, this workshop will help you create your own comic or piece of visual poetry.

Participants will be guided through a series of writing and drawing exercises and be introduced to a range of different approaches to comic-making. This workshop is open to all, whether you’re a seasoned illustrator or a complete beginner. No experience of comics is necessary!

Tickets include lunch.
