Emily will introduce participants to techniques in a workshop inspired by her use of language and texts to create works that aim to initiate discussions about contemporary social, cultural and political ideas. Participants will experiment with font, colour, shape and size to learn basic relief and screen-printing skills to make their own graphic posters using ink on paper.
