Event description

Description

Collage has so many possibilities and is a great way to create amazing compositions and play around and experiment before you stick an image down. Collages can be figurative or abstract and it is a perfect method of image making to use in a creative visual journal or to make pieces of art to frame. Collage has been used as a political tool and has a reputation for being subversive but it can also be used to be plain beautiful, think Matisse's 'cut outs'

Collage has been used as a political tool and has a reputation for being subversive but it can also be used to be plain beautiful, think Matisse's giant 'cut outs'

This workshop will flash some other collage legends by you, such as Hannah Hoch and Johnny Heartfield to get you inspired, their work is as fresh and powerful today as when they were first cut and pasted over 70 years ago!

We will discover collage techniques, collect together and compose images from magazines and discarded ephemera and combine with patterned papers and paint to create striking images that can be humorous and cheeky or serious and moody - it's all up to you.

If you came our watercolour and ink visual journal class, why not bring along your journal and keep working on it?

All materials are included but feel free to bring along magazines and images downloaded from the internet that take your fancy.
