You never have enough beautiful papers for collage, and this workshop gives you a time and space to express your personality and create a stash of your own unique painted papers. In the 1st session you’ll create painted papers, working with your own acrylic paints and acrylic media. In the 2nd session you’ll create a collage with your beautiful painted papers, adding hand-made and magazine papers you collect and bring to the workshop. The workshop includes demonstration for painting papers, collage technique, plus discussion and individual guidance. All levels are welcome to attend.
