Wheat pasteys are great, you can enlarge any image, repeat it by photocopying it as many times as you want, take your time to draw them up in the privacy of your home or studio (which could take hours if you wanted), and then slap them up in seconds. It covers a large area, last a while in weather and best of all is solid and bold.
This Workshop is for anyone that wants to learn more about making large scale wheat pasties on the street. We have had a lot of cats come in and ask about the kind of ink and paper to use, how to make glue etc etc. So we have decided to do this workshop due to demand and to share the knowledge of how to execute this simple yet effective artform. We may run another one next year but for now its a one-off.
