Fri/Sat/Sun 13/14/15th Jan - Collage Extravaganza Weekend with Dyan Reaveley
Collage is my favourite form of art, whether its for small art cards or large journal pages, but I’m aware that a lot of people struggle. Lets blow away the Christmas blues and dive into a creative 2019. We will be starting with some very simple backgrounds to use as a base and then going through where to start, how to source images and build a collection. I will have plenty of  magazines in the studio but it always helps to have some of your own. I will add a list of some of my favourites below. I will also be providing a lot of my own personal printed collage sheets. After some copious cutting out we will be ready for the off. How to plan your designs, which adhesives to use, bedding them into the backgrounds, painting over images, adding doodling and then those all so important finishing touches.  A complete A-Z of collage. Three whole days of fun with plenty of time to play as well. Saturday night there will be an optional pizza and play party, where the studio will be open for you to play in journals with pizza and wine provided. Who can resist??
