Create Your Own Collage Story

Saturday, July 27, 2019
10:30am - 4:30pm
University Art
@ 2550 El Camino Real, Redwood City
(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.
