Youngsters will learn everything from the simple tag all the way through to the “masterpiece”
Darren Farrell, co-owner of Chrome and Black said: “We are happy and excited to give people the opportunity to learn and understand the art of graffiti through our experience and understanding.”
Unit 5 is run by tour and workshop collective Alternative London. Founder Gary Means said: “After a long and successful relationship with Chrome and Black we’re really excited to be collaborating with them.
