Dates Are Now Finalised!....

Ok, here are all the details for our Autumn Workshops…. First four hour taster session, Friday 14th September, 10am till 2pm.  Application Forms will be posted out the week commencing 6th August  so please email us with your address if you wish to receive a form to register.
During this first Taster Session you will cover basic collage techniques using vintage papers, images, ephemera, fabric, trim and buttons, creating a beautiful finished collage with a whimsical feel.  For this first session we will provide all the materials you will need to create your first collage, to include; card, a selection of background papers and vintage images, ephemera, lace, fabric and trim, PVA glue, Diamond Glaze, craft print rollers and cutting mat.  YOU will need to bring along a basic tool kit of scissors, craft knife, pritt stick, glue spatulas, tweezers, small brushes for glue, baby wipes and small decoupage squares.  This basic tool kit will be required at each of the workshops if you sign up for them moving forward.  You will also need to bring along an A4 ring binder as we will be supplying you with class notes at the workshops.
The cost for this first four hour taster session is £45.00
After the first taster session we will then be running weekly two hour sessions every Friday from 10am to 12noon, beginning on Friday 21st Sept until Friday 26th Oct.  During these sessions we will cover more advance collage techniques to include incorporating vintage findings within your collage such as old keys, watch parts and jewellery pieces,  creating whimsical skirts from vintage papers (see previous post for an example), hand stitching within your collage, working with your family memorabilia to create personal collage pieces and for those of you that express an interest; incorporating drawing and watercolour features within your work…. The creative journey is endless and we know you will leave these sessions wanting more, it is such a wonderful expressive form of art.  These weekly session will require you to collect and bring in your own ephemera, lace and fabric to use within your creations, or if time is precious and you are unable to get these items together, all these elements will be available to purchase at The Little White Studio, including some wonderful collage sheets and image CDs that can be incorporated into many handmade items, not just collage!
The cost for the six week workshop (12hrs in total) is just £8.50 an hour.

Places are limited therefore if you wish to attend please remember to email your address details and we will forward out Application Forms the week commencing 6th August.

Please check back with this blog regularly as we will be posting images and updates of what’s happening at The Little White Studio in future sessions.  We look forward to creating with you!
