Ever fancied delving into the Tate Library and Archive?

This two-day workshop gives you the opportunity to uncover and handle rarely seen illustrated letters, books and ephemera by artists such as Pauline Smith, George Brecht, Donald Rodney and John Craxton who combine text, image and materials in interesting ways. Inspired by examples of mail art, Fluxus scores, sketchbooks and personal letters, workshop participants will experiment with new ways to produce poetic texts and visual poems.

The workshop culminates in a collaborative zine-making session.

No prior experience is necessary, though participants will be encouraged to work independently and bring their own ideas and interests to the workshops.

Some materials will be provided but please bring your own paper based materials to Day 2.
