Jette Clover: Layering and Lettering 16th-17th November

$280.00 $240.00

The history of art has predominantly seen paper as the support surface for art, but in the beginning of the 20th century Cubism and Dada liberated paper and other materials from everyday life and introduced collage as an art medium in its own right.
In this workshop you will discover a whole new world of artistic possibilities, when you combine collage with paint and printing techniques. We will explore layering visually and physically, use text as form and content and experiment with paper, textile and stitch.
We will be applying stenciling, masking, tracing, sanding, over-painting and transfer techniques and work with non-traditional ‘tools’ for writing and mark making.
