Stencil Making for March Placards and Posters
September 26, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
About the event
Want to design and make a stencil you can re-use and share for the 6th Annual March for Choice 30th Sept? Then come along to this very special workshop that includes a demo by artist Will St Leger.
This workshop will respond to the theme of this year’s march ‘Time To Act’. Participants will be shown how to design placards, posters, t-shirts, costumes, banners, flags and whatever else you can dream up. These will include images and slogans featuring timepieces to deliver our message loudly, clearly and creatively to our government that we want abortion access for all NOW!
Please note: We will document the event using photography, audio and video for sharing across our online platforms. If you do not wish to feature in our documentation, please let Abortion Rights Campaign volunteers know on arrival.
We gratefully acknowledge the generous support of Will St Leger and Temple Bar Gallery and Studios for this event.
