$150 (includes all materials)
Create your own beautiful collage story! In this six-hour workshop, we’ll use vintage paper and ephemera to transform ordinary blocks of wood into a beautiful three-part, multi-dimensional collage.
We’ll pull from my extensive collection of vintage paper, envelopes, images and other beautiful things to find materials and images that speak to you, then use a range of collage techniques to craft story blocks that tell your story. We’ll focus on:
Basic paper layering and gluing techniques
Creating effective compositions on and across multiple blocks
Selecting and using images to craft a cohesive story
Transferring images using a simple Xerox transfer technique
Methods for finishing and protecting your work
You’ll leave the workshop with three finished card deck-sized story blocks you can display or give as a personalized gift, and skills you can use in your own art practice.
All materials will be provided. A list of suggested tools and optional additional materials will be distributed prior to the workshop.
No previous experience necessary.
