18th May / Heals Westfield
Learn to love the medium of collage and embrace your inner Matisse during this collage workshop.
What you will do
You will work alongside print designer Katy Welsh (@katydwelsh) to explore composition and the art of colour play, creating our own abstract compositions and translating these into collage using hand cut shapes.
We will be working with brightly coloured sticky back vinyl, usually used for sign making and shop windows, Katy has discovered it is a great material for collage too.
During the workshop, you will create a series of A3 collaged artworks that you can take away with you, and an appreciation for playing with shapes!
Katy designs patterns for companies across the world, her work has been applied to products from gift wrap, mugs and cards to cushions and clothing.
She embraces anything handmade and collage has been a big part of her process from the beginning.
Some of her biggest inspirations include Matisse, Picasso and the Bloomsbury group; she likes to have fun with design and is excited to share her knowledge with you!
