Join Iona Rowland, the artist behind Seven Dials’ exclusive artwork ‘The Evolution of Agatha Christie’, for her ‘REMIX’ workshop. Forming part of Seven Dials’ International Women’s Day events programme, Iona will guide you through the process of ‘cutting and pasting’ images, symbols and literature of personal significance to form a visual soundtrack reflecting your passions, aspirations, skills, values, and memories. Referencing remix methods used in early hip hop music and William S. Burroughs literary ‘cut-up technique’, you will create a unique and personal work of art to take home with you.
