About This Workshop

Create your own mixed media collage while learning how to use creative thinking skills to explore, generate and develop your own creative language.

This workshop offers possibilities for all levels of creative practice, with opportunities for individual explorations under supportive mentoring. We will investigate basic structure of composition, and learn to layer different papers and fibres. Adding acrylic paint, inks, graphite pencils and other medium will further enhance the composition and will add your own personal touch.

Be inspired on a journey of discovery.
