2-day workshop in the beautiful surrounds of the Royal Botanic Garden with Toni McDowell
Explore the exciting possibilities of collage, originally invented by Picasso and Braque. A great entry into making abstract art, this workshop stimulates ideas, themes and visual stories, while using plants as inspiration.
Students will learn leaf printing and experiment with paper, string, bark, paint, crayon and ink. The result? Unique greeting cards and artworks ready to hang. Most collage materials supplied.
