Mixed Media Collage Workshop – Somercotes
This is a 6 hour art workshop, specifically looking at the medium of collage. All ages & abilities are welcome. Collage is a real passion of mine and can be used to create artwork in a whole variety of ways. This workshop will explore lots of different styles and techniques, will include demonstrations, videos, examples of other artists’ work and plenty of tuition and encouragement from yours truly throughout the day But above all this 6 hour workshop is about experimenting, playing, working in a way you’ve maybe not worked in before. Sometimes things won’t work out, while other times magic will happen…
I will provide a lot of collage materials that people are very free to use, but I always say in regards to collage, that materials are so special. The right bits and pieces often take some finding. Materials can hold sentimental value or be hugely personal to specific people, which is why I do always encourage people to start collecting. Live your life as a magpie and be constantly on the lookout for that special thing. You will hate me when you start hording absolutely everything like I do
As well as the more traditional collage materials like magazines, papers, tissue, fabric, photos etc. this workshop will also involve using a lot of other art materials; drawing equipment, acrylics, inks, charcoal, glue, scissors, pens, to name just a few. I will bring all of this along for people to use, but again, any of your own equipment please feel free to bring it along.
Most of my classes/courses have a real mix of learners. Some very accomplished & experienced, and some who haven’t picked up a pencil since they left school. Please don’t be scared if you are the latter of the two. I will always spend a lot of time with ‘new’ learners and will bring in a range of tasks that vary in difficulty.
Tea, coffee, juice and snacks will be available for free, but people will need to provide their own lunch on the day. I can provide a buffet lunch at extra cost if anyone requires one. Please let me know if you do.
