Workshop, Happy Mondays

Learn how to turn hand-drawn sketches into quality digital graphics using free software!

Inkscape is a free, open-source piece of software which enables you to transform hand-drawn images into high quality logos or artwork for web and print. This supportive, friendly workshop led by artist Ryan Heath will introduce the software and get you creating your own work.

You'll need to bring a laptop with you (purchased in the last ten years) and a mouse. Please download a copy of Inkscape in advance. If you have any problems with this then please contact us in advance by emailing luarts@lboro.ac.uk.

You do not need any prior experience of Inkscape.

Ryan Heath is a contemporary artist creating video, painting and sculpture.. He has exhibited in the UK and internationally, receiving commissions and awards from established organisations including BACKLIT Gallery, UK New Artists, and Ignite Futures. A strong advocate for socially-engaged art, he often works with young people as a creative facilitator. Ryan's previous partners include Nottingham Refugee Forum, Harris Museum, and Tate Modern. He has also given guest lectures and panel discussions at leading universities and institutions such as The University of Nottingham and The British Library.
