A little of this and a bit of that…  Collage 

Can you cut? Do you like the funny side of life or need more oddly beautiful moments? Then collage is for you. Random images from different sources are recomposed into an artwork. Collect some of your favourite images (optional) to use and come and have fun creating your own artwork.

This workshop can inspire your sense of humour or celebrate a memory by using photographs or memorabilia.

If you wish to bring your own materials to add to mine … these are the things that are suitable:

Pictures from magazines, coffee table books, picture books, old encyclopedias, wrapping paper, stamps, old photos (not precious) your old paintings on paper to use as background or as part of the collage. All papers like envelops, tracing paper, patterns, tissue papers, cards, plus other objects including materials like laces and ribbons.

The pictures can be composed on a back ground of your making or on an image that you like. You can be as sensible as you wish or not. Just come and enjoy creating little tableau of your making with your imagination leading the way or just a bit astray!
