Give your creativity free rein through the art of collage. This workshop lets you explore visual themes, stories and ideas using a variety of collage methods. With the garden as inspiration, you’ll learn how to juxtapose materials to produce beautiful abstract artworks. Under expert guidance you can experiment with techniques such as layering and leaf printing using paper, card, string, photographs, ink, paint and crayons.
You don’t even need to be able to draw to find your own expressive style.
