One of the first workshops as part of Making a Living Week we started out by looking t found objects provided by Tom and Kristoffer we were asked to then draw any glyphs (individual letter or symbol) that we liked, we did this three times then re-drawing and sizing them to cut out of coloured paper. we worked in groups compiling our letters together on A1 sheets to create very dynamic and colourful posters.
We have had another workshop in groups where we have went out in search of images of the area around us from building and spaces, sounds and conversations to illustrations and found objects. After completing this we went to the Bishopsgate Archive to look at some historical documents ranging from books to illustrated pamphlets.
