In this workshop participants will work with both paper and textile and the combination of these two materials. Through a variety of exercises they will explore visual and physical layering in compositions and experiment with different collage techniques.
Experimentation is essential in collage, and the handling of materials – the cutting, tearing, folding, stacking and attaching bits and pieces into a whole – reinforces the importance of the process. And this spontaneous hands-on way of working helps develop an intuitive feeling for composition.
Text will be used as a visual means of communication, along with non-traditional tools for writing and mark making. Participants will further deal with collage in an art historical context and discuss form and content, the concepts of ‘less is more’ and ‘wabi-sabi’, and the benefits of working in a series.
