Collage,Paint & Print

Wednesday 30 June 2021 , 10am to 3:30pm.  £45 [SALES CLOSED]
This workshop is for adults.

Create a multi-layered mixed media piece of work in this fun experimental workshop – no experience necessary (and you don’t need to be able to draw!)

We will use acrylic paints to create layers of transparent colour, spatters and drips over a collaged base, adding simple printed patterns and stencils. We will then work over the top of this with drawn and painted elements to make lively mixed media images.
There will be lots of demos & step-by-step instruction in this fun and informal workshop.
