Work alongside print designer Katy Welsh to explore composition and the art of colour play.
Taking inspiration from the Makers & Tools exhibition and the environment in the Old Fire Station, create your own abstract compositions and translate these into collage using hand-cut shapes. You will be working with brightly coloured stickyback vinyl, usually used for sign making and shop windows – Katy has discovered it is a great material for collage too!
During the workshop, which is suitable for all skill levels, you will create an individual collaged artwork that you can take away with you, and the opportunity to work on a larger collaborative piece which will be displayed in the gallery.
Tickets £10 limited places so book early with The Old Fire Station
Katy designs patterns for companies across the world and has seen her work 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.
