Graffiti at Zap Graffiti, Liverpool 29 May 2021 — 1 December 2022 Tickets from £20 — Book now

Since 1995, Liverpool’s Zap Graffiti has been engaging people from across the globe in graffiti; an oft-misunderstood artform that, when used positively, can be a powerful force for good. Services span custom murals to working with schools and community groups, as well as selling products and prints. Hosting spaces to paint is another staple, as is organising events like Contrast Mural Festival.

Perhaps one of Zap’s most popular offers, though, is its two-hour classes. A rare chance to get behind the spray can, these teach all the basic skills and techniques you need to make a street-style creation for yourself – specifically on a 3×3 poster that you can take home as a souvenir or artwork once given time to dry. Taught by an expert tutor, classes include all materials and safety gear, and are open to both children of six-plus and adults (although those who are pregnant or have breathing difficulties are advised against booking). Needless to say, wearing clothes and shoes you don’t mind getting messy is advised, and wrap up if it’s cold as all classes take place outside. Don’t worry if it’s raining, the team have a trusty gazebo for shelter…this is the North West after all.

Want to go one better? Class bumper packs are available to buy too; including a class voucher, six cans of Aka Writer series 400ml spray paint and caps, a loop A4 blackbook and a 100-pack of Montana ‘Hello my name is’ stickers with marker.

For those wanting to organise a group experience, Zap also offers parties in which you try out your newfound techniques on a team practise piece. Staff are highly experienced, DBS-checked and insured; ready to give you and your friends, family or colleagues a party to remember.
