Every month we host a variety of workshops at the London Graphic Centre store in Covent Garden. Our aim is to host different workshops that appeal to different audiences, it is the time you get to discover your inner artist. Whether you are experienced or inexperienced, there is something for everyone. The purpose of these workshops is not only to inspire you to get creative but to give you the artistic techniques and supplies to be able to do so.
