This year our workshops embrace and celebrate the many different forms of street art catering for different skill levels and areas of interest. Join some of our leading street artists for workshops on stencils, character development, street sculpture, illustration, yarn wrapping. Places in each workshop are limited, so bookings are essential. Go to http://www.sweetstreets.net/workshops-book-here/ to find out more details and to book online.
Join Civil, leading stencil artist, activist, illustrator and publisher, for this 3 hour session focusing on using interlocking smaller scale stencils to initiate a narrative that others can build on. Create stencils based on hand drawn images, develop your own cutting style, optimise the use of colour, and build collaboration. This session is most suitable for people who have some experience with stencil techniques.
Session Date & Time: Saturday 16th October, 2 – 5pm
Venue: Collingwood Underground Arts Park, 44 Harmsworth Streets, Collingwood VIC

Drypnz is a New Zealand based paint mover. For the past five years he has been creating murals and street works that imitate experiences, and the people he finds surround him. The output is characters called Drypppls. They try and explain and expand the notion that, ‘the human race is in a state of dis-evolution, revealing exaggerated aspects of the human condition and our common traits.
Check out Drynz work in the Sweet Streets Award Exhibition: 8-24 October, 1000 Pound Bend, and his live street-mural painting throughout the festival (exact locations to be announced).
