Join us for an afternoon of collage making; cut, paste, glue, stick and assemble in guidance of the talented UK-based Swiss collagist Linda Bernhard to create your very own piece of artwork.
Collage – from the french word coller ‘to glue’ – has been arguably the most significant revolution in modern art. Its origins in the West are attributed to Picasso and Braque, whose ground-breaking papiers collés incorporated bits of newspaper, café menus and pieces of chair caning into still life pictures, to the dadaists and surrealists, fluxus groups and pop artists.
The collage workshop will begin with a short introduction into the history of collage and its techniques, from Picasso to Avant Garde to now; before we start to work and get lost in images, stories and re-imagination of the world around.
Tickets include a kit of essential collage making materials and welcome drinks from the West Elm Market. The workshop is for everybody interested in collage. No specific skills are required.
Bring creativity and any old magazines or photos that you would like to use in creating your collage.
