Over its almost 250 year history, The Piece Hall has been home to the weird, wonderful & fantastical. Displays from the world-famous tight-rope walker Blondin and an elephant parading through the town are just a couple of the famous moments captured in print and press.
The course will explore images and articles from The Piece Hall’s archives, reimagining and retelling stories of Halifax’s magnificent grade I listed building. Inspired by Joanna Neborsky’s illustrations of Félix Fénéon’s 3 line novels, lead artist Harriet Lawton will deliver hands-on printing and drawing exercises resulting in the creation of your own beautifully unique one-page story.
Techniques include drawing and illustration, printmaking, monoprint, screen print and letterpress.
Each student will receive one to one technical support from experienced tutors. Materials are included.
The first three weeks will be based at The Piece Hall and the second three weeks will be based at The Artworks
