HERO Custom Skateboard Deck Workshop

Hero Workshop

Friends of Design are hosting a workshop tonight at 6pm on custom skateboard deck graphics.

The world of comics is full of amazing superheroes, each with their own superpowers, strengths and weaknesses. From Batman and Spiderman, to the Incredible Hulk, Wonder Woman and Banana Man, everyone has their favourite character, whether they are good, bad or somewhere in-between! Led by professional illustrators, this workshop will provide budding street, comic and illustration artists with the opportunity to create their own superhero or villain and improve their drawing technique on skate-decks.

Find out how to paint and customise a skate deck – inlcuding techniques, tips and tricks, how to adjust the shape, and how to create adornments. Basic paints and pens will be provided. Experienced custom artists will be running the workshop explaining exactly what you need to know – and you’ll have a chance to start customising them then and there!

Experienced artists will be leading a two hour workshop to design and create your very own customised hand-painted Skate-Deck using paint and other materials. They will share inspiration on the community around skating in South Africa, while offering assistance and feedback.

All finalised customised decks and illustrations will be showcased at our big HERO – Expo during First Thursdays beginning of August.
