Event Overview

/>Gain an appreciation for the underground phenomenon of street art and learn how to create your own in this hands-on Dabble workshop. We'll walk through the basics of wheat-pasting (an all-natural liquid adhesive for pasting posters and graffiti) and printmaking, and using mailing labels to make street-worthy stickers.


Even if you're no Banksy, you can learn how to bring some of our own beauty to the grunge of the city with a few simple techniques. This unique hybrid class is co-taught by One Strange Bird's finest: Nicolette Ross and Nicole Northway. Learn how to use the tradition of printmaking to create multiples to paste your vision into the streets!

    A fun, laid back environment! I learned a lot in a short time from two ladies who were kind, talented and enthusiastic. And I got to take home a cool project! Makes me want to create more. I'd pay to take this same class again!

    Was really cool to see so many different types of people come together for the love of street art. As with any One Strange Bird class, great hand-out + fun, hands-on experience. Like the "make by making" approach. Thanks Nicole and Nicolette!

    The class was narrowly focused into 3 main types of street art, allowing a lot of time to discuss and create examples of all three. Our instructor had a lot of materials for us and several take-home freebies, which made me feel like I got my time and money's worth. It was a friendly and supportive environment, so none of us were afraid to create whatever came to mind. She also discussed the legal ramifications behind street art, a lot of which I was completely unaware of. Also, many of us had traveled around the world, so it was fun discussing our experiences and the kinds of street art we've seen elsewhere.
