With only a few weeks to go until the first Taster Workshop, Karen and I are busy preparing the Studio, stocking it up with lots of lovely art and supplies in readiness to welcome our first guests. The basic collage kits are now ready and waiting along with the handouts to help you create your first basic collage. Should you get bitten by the Collage bug then you may wish to sign up for the following six week course we are offering, during this time you will cover many exciting techniques, to include creating a Memory Collage using family ephemera. Naturally most of us are Keepers of our past hanging on to old love letters that have long turned yellow, precious old photos of those dear to us - all treasured pieces of our past.
Here are just a few examples of Memory pieces that I have created both for myself and clients. Memory Collages don't have to be restricted to Canvas or Cardstock, they can be created in many forms as Greetings Cards, Memory Boxes and Paper Journals, the possibilities are endless.
So if you are signing up for the weekly courses then please start thinking about your Memory Piece and trawl through your loft and photo albums to collect together items to bring these memories alive again in Art!
