#JMKSpace: Exploring Form
In this zoom workshop Kirsty will explore the techniques she uses to find the right form for each different piece of work and story. Covering aesthetic, structure and technology, we’ll be looking at how you can really push each piece you make to be fully, uniquely itself.
The session will take place 10 – 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday 15th December on Zoom, and will be facilitated by Piers Black.
This free #JMKSpace event is open to all and 15 spaces are available on a first come first served basis. To apply to take part please complete the form at the bottom of the page no later than 5pm on 9th December.
As with all our events, please inform us as soon as possible if you are no longer able to attend.
If you have any further access requirements, need technical support or have any other questions, please indicate on the form or contact email@example.com
