In this session Simone will be using Inkscape and the Trace Bitmap function to create a collage of images and explore colour. She will export an image to Gimp and explore the use of filters. The theme will be a kind of ‘Hidden Figures’ poster paying homage to Claudia Jones- founder of the Notting Hill Carnival. Time permitting, she will also demonstrate how to use the Inkscape Trace Bitmap function again to create a poster themed around housing activism. During this session, participants will share a poster, a flyer they have created or simply share a theme they have explored using a chosen free software or function.

There are a range of Libre Graphics programs available. We’ll be focusing on two popular tools for this session: Inkscape and GIMP (Gnu Image Manipulation Program). They are a great pairing for making flyers, posters and web graphics. Inkscape and GIMP are both available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
