Stencil Workshop – University of Bristol

Stencil Workshop – University of Bristol

Better late than never with this post… Earlier this year I was invited by the University of Bristol’s School of Modern Languages – specifically Hispanic and Catalan studies to take part in their Semana Cultural. I gave a talk firstly on my experiences as an author of the book Graffiti Brasil and my continuing interest in Urban art from Brazil.


On the second day I led a stencil art workshop held in a courtyard on campus where students were given the brief to consider the connections between Bristol and Brazil as a theme. None of the students had ever made a stencil or used spray paint so it was refreshing to work with language students rather than art students in this task and it was great to share in their enthusiasm and what they achieved working in small teams…



Thanks to all at the school for the invitation and to Cass Art in Bristol for their assistance with the workshop.
