Join a date from our calendar or create your own date with your own group of 4 people
This Workshop is comprehensive - start to end. You will leave with all the info you need to go on and produce your own collage masterpieces.
Our workshop is designed to give you independence and creative freedom ( so not everyone’s needs to look the same) and the knowledge to use once you get home ( so you can keep building on what you have learnt).
The format involves an easy to follow along process, as each student can be given individual support and have Fi’s skilled teaching, adapted to their needs.
Each participant will choose from a selection of Fi's images to replicate. More experienced students may choose to build on what they see, introducing their own ideas to the composition, mixing their colours and making their own aesthetic choices.
Raw beginners are completely able to achieve a great outcome.
AIMS OF THE WORKSHOP:
Discover the joys and ease of this great, accessible medium.
Complete a ready to frame and hang piece. *
Up skill our design, layout and construction knowledge.
Learn about fool proof colour mixing techniques.
Learn about different tools and materials and and foundation design concepts.
