'Make It Big'- A one day course covering techniques for scaling designs for murals and public art.


17th September 2023

In this one-day course, we will explore the different ways that an initial idea can be scaled up to fit on any size of wall and the benefits and practicalities of each; techniques for text, pattern and illustration; how to choose appropriate materials for murals, media boxes and other projects; ensuring longevity of painted work in outside weather and how to work at height and how to estimate costs for jobs.

The course is designed for creatives who already produce visual art but may lack the confidence to translate designs onto bigger surfaces. We will participate in practical exercises using techniques discussed and address some of the pitfalls and practicalities in designingwork to be produced at scale. No previous experience is necessary, just some enthisiasm to get involved.

Ther course will run from 11- 4.30pm at Lightspace, a photography studio and event space in Meanwood, Leeds. Tea, coffee, snacks and all materials will be provided. We will cover some practicalities of using tablet/ ipad/ laptop/ camera- you're welcome to bring any of those you might use.
