About this event

Collaging Workshop: Inventing Otherworldly Plants

with award winning artist KAREN MAXTED

Discover how to cut out content from magazines etc to create quirky collages reinterpreting plants and flowers, and turn them into new creations which we will then paint and take home.

Using found materials will let us create work with a more surreal or abstract and fun quality, and teach you a process which makes it easy to depart from attempting to realistically portray a subject with completely unpredictable results.

What will happen on the day:

Participants will be offered an array of plant photos or can choose to bring in their own. They will sketch out images, breaking plants down into shapes. Using magazines, newspapers etc we will think about these shapes and find a variety of similar shapes. For example, a petal might be a woman’s skirt cut out from a fashion magazine.

The shapes will then be sorted and configured to create collages responding to the original source material. These will be made into compositions.

The final step is to interpret the collage into a painting. We will use techniques in paint that pay homage to the collage process – like creating sharp lines with masking tape and painting in layers corresponding to how the collage has been laid down.

Participants will take home a finished painting of their original plant invention.

What to bring:

All materials will be provided however please bring any special cuttings, images, paper or art material that you would like to work with.
