Jeff Soto works overtime to finalise a large mural, Osian Efnisien and Genevieve Gauckler spread their trademark characters in live-painting performances, Felt Mistress demonstrates the art of soft sculptures crafting, Sue Doeksen awaits you for an animated Paper Jam, Anna Hrachovic recruits an army of Mochimochi Monster Knitters and David Kamp’s imaginary Sound Creatures invite you to live drawing classes.
This is also your unique chance to rub shoulders with the international Pictoplasma Conference speakers such as Jeff Soto, Geneviève Gauckler, Felt Mistress, LowBros or Osian Efnisien, and witness how they approach their media of choice, from a sheet of paper, or a large format canvas, all the way to a pile of felt.
