These monthly activity sessions are led by artists and take place in the Spike Island Café. Visitors of all ages and abilities can try out new techniques and approaches to making art, from drawing and painting to collage, sculpture and animation and are invited to drop in any time during the session.
 
What is it to have a good eye? Libita Clayton shares her archive of found material for this session inspired by DIY cultures; let go of preciousness, cut-up, remake and leave with a shiny new thing — a one-off badge!
