Useful & Beautiful Creative Workshop

10th April 2021 @ 11:00 am 12:30 pm

The Useful & Beautiful project by artist Vasu Sellamuthu is teaming up with graphic designer and typographer Kruti Saraiya to run a creative lettering workshop for 16-25 year olds based in Walthamstow on 27 March 2021 from 11AM-12:30PM on zoom. This is a free workshop and suited to all abilities. 
The written word is such an integral part of the everyday that we forget that each letter is a shape and each word its own composition. From Urdu to Bulgarian, we invite participants to engage with languages spoken locally and their scripts, both the familiar and unfamiliar. Through fun prompts we will combine and create unique drawn words as both experiments and expressions. You will discover how words can be powerful visual tools and gain inspiration to look at languages in our neighbourhood with new eyes. Selected responses will feature on the cover panel of the Useful & Beautiful story-box which will exhibit poems and creative writing by residents of Walthamstow on the theme of home.

Limited places, sign up now by emailing usefulandbeaut@gmail.com or check out @usefulandbeaut on Instagram for full details.

This event is supported by Urban by Nature, a creative programme from community organisations William Morris Big Local and Wood Street Walls CIC.
