A Graphic Surprise

Drop-In Flower Pounding Workshop

Saturday 13 January | 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Create your own colourful artworks by pounding flowers and leaves. Inspired by the Japanese practice of transferring paint dyes onto fabric and paper, tataki-zomé is a printing method whereby fresh plants are pressed into paper, with the resulting stain creating a print.

This print method is unpredictable, the colours will burst out from the plants in random ways. The final reveal of the print is a big moment – a graphic surprise!

Suitable for ages 5 and over, with adult supervision. All materials provided, do not bring your own plants. Please note: this will require using a hammer or mallet.

1.30pm – 4pm Saturday 13 January and
11am – 1.30pm Sunday 14 January

Free – no booking necessary
