Mixed Media Collage Workshop

Tania is taking a short break from teaching this workshop due to being so busy with her own lovely work. She does intend to do more in the near future. Sign up to our newsletter here for updates or follow us on Facebook. Thanks!


£75 per person. 6 people per class, Supervised children welcome

Location
Red House Glass Cone. DY8 4AZ

Most of us have dabbled with collage at some time, but take it to an exciting new level with this fail safe workshop! In this taster course, Tania will provide you with everything you need to create a colourful, contemporary collage using the simplest of materials. You will learn how to transfer a design onto canvas, select your colour palette and apply your materials for the best results. Subject-matter is provided, but be warned, the technique is quite addictive. The course is suitable for children provided they are accompanied by an adult, but requires dexterity and the use of sharp scissors so is not suitable for young children.

Depending on the speed that you work, you can expect to complete one small canvas using paint, drawing materials, a selection of collage materials and glue, plus a full colour image is provided to work from as your starting point. The process will fill the whole four hour session and you may find you need to finish your piece at home, however, if you are a particularly fast worker there will be extra canvasses available at no extra charge. Groups are a maximum of 6
people so Tania can work closely with you to achieve a great result.

Tea, coffee and squash are provided in the studio, but you will need to bring your own lunch. There is free parking and a cafe on site plus ten other studios and free entry to the Red House Glass Cone visitors centre in the historic Glass Quarter, Stourbridge.

A minimum of 2 people must attend this workshop for it to run. If this is not reached a full refund will be given. Tania can take group booking for this workshop on alternative dates. Please get in touch with enquiries here.
