Join Architectural Illustrator, Philip Buckingham, for a drop-in drawing workshop at The Pavement Art Gallery parklet, located in front of 1 St Martin Le Grand, City of London. Use your lunch break to learn different architectural drawing techniques while drawing directly on the York stone slabs. There will also be an opportunity to discover other local sites of architectural value as part of the workshop. This event is free of charge but has a limited capacity. Tickets will be allocated on a first come first served basis. The Pavement Art Gallery is a temporary parklet installation by Patrick McEvoy commissioned by City of London and London Festival of Architecture. Throughout London, York stone slabs form a canvas for pavement artists. These artists draw directly onto the pavement and their illustrations only exist for a short time. Presenting flagstones on a series of timber easels, The Pavement Art Gallery enables passers-by to create their very own pavement art using the chalk provided. The gallery was made with the help of EWM Bespoke Interiors, EWIPro, Marshalls Paving, Solid Geometry Structural Engineers, University of Westminster and Prewett Bizley Architects.

The event: 2pm-3.45pm Internal Styles (Yi Quan etc) 3.45pm-4.15pm Break 4.15pm-6pm Practical Wing Chun Biography: Half Italian Half French, Sifu Kleber started practicing martial arts when he was 9 with the Japanese art of Jiu Jitsu. He then went on to train in weapon usage (Escrima Pilipino), Western Boxing, ground defence (Indonesian Pencak Silat) and ground fighting (Brasilian Jiu Jitsu). However his main love was always Wing Chun Kung fu which he started training back in 2001, and it has since been a never ending journey. When living in Italy he trained the military police, then started teaching Wing Chun in London and met and trained with many of the most knowledgeable Wing Chun masters still alive. He then moved to Hong Kong for almost 4 years to train full-time with his Sifu Wan Kam Leung in order to focus on improving his Wing Chun and start training the internal aspects of martial arts. In 2013 he moved to Shanghai to teach full time and continue his research into internal martial arts styles. From 2013 onwards he has been a regular writer for the international martial arts magazine "Wing Chun Illustrated". Since he moved to Hong Kong and China, he is one of the main historical researchers on the art of Wing Chun kung fu, having recorded short video documentaries and interviewing many of the different masters who represent the various lineages of Wing Chun Kung Fu around the world. Sifu Kleber is a doctor in Psychology specialised in "Learning skills", a trainer in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and a certified AIS stretch coach.

Submissions are now open for South London Zine Festival 2019!  Select up to five of your zines, show and sell them alongside all the other locally made zines in one of Deptford’s coolest venues – Deptford does Art!  No judgement, all submissions (unless offensive) are to be accepted, making this a true representation of zine culture in London. This will be an invigilated festival so zine makers don’t have to be present throughout the show but are more then welcome to take part in events and hopefully can join us on the opening night on Friday 2 August 7-11pm for some drinks and networking!  There are several parts to the festival. The first is the exhibition, which will be in the basement gallery space, where one copy of each zine submitted will be hung from the wall. Visitors will be able to move through the space, picking up & reading zines as they walk around. Publications will be hung on wall with maker’s bio, story (intorudiction to the zines) and social media/website details placed next to it (This is to be provided via email with two images for promo).  As this is an unfunded event we kindly ask everyone submitting zines to this festival to pay £5 fee (per person entering, not per zine). This fee covers the basic costs of running the space, printing marketing materials and promotion. If you’d like to include more than 5 publications please do let us know - we can see if we can fit more, depending on number of submissions by 23rd July.  The second part of the festival is the ground floor shop, where people can sell their zines. These are to be dropped off a week before - between 24th to 28th July and will be available for people to buy over the festival (25% commission on sale). There won’t be any tabling, like at a standard zine fair, as there isn’t enough space and we’re keen for the focus to be an interactive exhibition, alongside a mixture of free and paid-for events. The third part are events. We are planning a number of events throughout the festival such as talks, workshops, music & more. If you’d like to get involved and run a workshop/talk/performance please let us know. Be part of this huge zine celebration!  IMPORTANT: After submitting please EMAIL: [email protected] (subject ZINE FEST) with a short bio, story and social media/website links - deadline 24 July 2019!  Please print your submission ticket and include as part of the delivery package with a note of the number of copies of each zine & price. Please make sure each zine has a price on it, either written in pencil or on a sticker (Price including commission). You can also post directly to us: Deptford does Art, 28 Deptford High Street, London, SE8 4AF.  Drop off at the gallery between 24-28 July 10-6pm.
