Workshop: Ways to Split a Moment – storyboarding for zines and comics with Mohammed Z. Rahman

Wednesday 15th November 2023 , 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Join visual artist and writer Mohammed Z. Rahman in this low-stakes, playful workshop exploring sequential storytelling and how to construct your own narratives when drawing comics, zines, and graphic novels. 

Across the two hours, Mohammed with guide us through a number of writing and drawing exercises designed to gently interrogate how we can play with ideas of time and pace when planning drawn sequences and building storyboards. They will also share some of their own work and an insight into some of the artists who inspire it. 

Diving into ideation, collective narrative building, stream of consciousness writing, frame rates, punchlines, and different scales and compositions, this session is geared towards introducing you to a broad range of storytelling and narrative techniques that you can take away with you and continue experimenting with! 

This workshop is open to all abilities and levels of experience. All materials are provided.  

£7 £5 concessions

More about Mohammed Z. Rahman 

Mohammed Z Rahman (he/they) is a British-Bengali visual artist and writer based in London. His work often deals with domesticity, migration and gender. Mohammed’s visual output includes illustration, painting and zines. His literary output includes essays, short stories and poetry.  

Mohammed approaches art as an intimate and political force probing and mutating the ordinary. Drawing on dreamscapes, globality, queerness, biography and socio-historical perspectives, he creates work that celebrates his communities’ internationalist dreams, disrupts violent power structures and makes peace with unspeakable chaos.
