In this class Carolyn will show a number of collage techniques, help you make lots of small collages and talk about how collage can be adapted for your ideas and future art work. You will spend time working with art materials – paper, paint, pens, glue, stitch, thread, fabric to explore ideas and develop new designs.




"When I am playing at home I spend as much time working with art materials – paper, paint, pens, glue, stitch, thread, fabric – as I do actually making art quilts. While I don’t do the carefully detailed drawings that some do, I spend a lot of time making repetitive marks and doing collage. While generally I have a specific theme in mind, sometimes an idea will come out of “left field” just because I have been playing".

"In 2014 I did a “postcard collage a day” and have done many more since then. It gets my brain going each morning; I have a bundle of art accumulating that doesn’t take up too much space; and a great store of ideas for future art works".
