'Mixed Media Collage and Assemblage'
This 3 day course will allow you to develop a collection of art pieces, handmade cards, gift wrap, designs to translate onto bags, mugs, tiles, etc., your own personalised fabrics or the most lovely gift for a special friend or family member celebrating a momentous event or memory. All these items are potential money earners for example I sell my handmade cards for 5 euros each, as mini artworks and I have not bought a card for the last 25 years!
Here is your chance to take a 3 day creative mini break in the lovely mountains of Central Portugal whilst exploring and developing your art skills using mixed media collage with fabrics, papers, various cards, threads, yarns and also found objects. Experimenting with paint, dye, print, and stitch, you will decorate a variety of papers, card, cloth, yarns and other surfaces. These will form your own personal stock of coloured, textured and patterned media with which you will explore the exciting possibilities of working in collage and assemblage, there will also be an opportunity to use other techniques such as photo transfer and stencilling. You will be guided by artist Nikola Orpen through all the steps of colour, composition and assembly and will conclude the course with your own personal collection of collaged samples and artworks.
