Experimental Texture Collage  

2 half-day workshop

Thursdays, 1:00pm - 4:00pm

All skill levels, Mixed media collage

November 2,9, 2017

March 1,8, 2018


The word “experimental” says it all. In this workshop you’ll get the chance to play with unique and unusual tools and texture mediums to add new twists and excitement to your collage creations. We’ll work with joint compound, tissue paper and other textural mediums. The tools used may surprise you – you may never look at your drawer full of kitchen implements or household cleaning tools quite the same again! If you’re up for some fun and discovering some new techniques, then please come join us. Students will work with some “pre-prepared” surfaces as well as getting a chance to try the mediums and materials and will have a completed work after 2 sessions.
