Introduction to Concept Art – Silhouettes and Photobashing
Join BA (Hons) Games Art and Design Lecturers, Kaliegh Branham and Michelle Marham, who will take you through a couple of techniques used in concept art to produce quick idea generation with Adobe photoshop, involving shape and pattern recognition (pareidolia) and actualisation of ideas through photobashing.

Making Space for Theory
Join BA (Hons) Interior Design Course Leader, Ben Salter and BA (Hons) Architecture Lecturer, William Chen, for this collaborative workshop where you’ll explore fundamental practices that are shared across both courses.
