Have you ever admired traditional Filipino tattoo designs, or noticed the beautifully bright indigenous textiles of the Philippines?
In this FREE workshop, you will learn about the rich history of the artistic traditions that emobody the heritage of the Philippines. Just 1 out of 5 workshops we are delivering in the Festival of Philippine Culture & Heritage to educate, inspire and bring young people of Filipino descent together.
We will focus on indigenous textiles and traditional tattoos, both of which are slowly dying with the advent of modern technology and loss of spiritual connection. You will learn about their histories, see some wonderful designs and be inspired to create your own motifs and tattoos in a variety of media, including henna! You will then have the opportunity to exhibit your work at the end of year showase in December.
For the chance to win a prize, you can take the skills and inspiration from this workshop to the end of year showcase exhibition in December! More information will be disclosed closer to the time.
