March 12th has been officially* declared #WorldCollageDay. To celebrate this international appreciation of the art of collage, international artist Nina Fraser will be hosting a collage workshop focussing on manipulation of imagery relating to nature and the contrasting urban landscape of the city.
You will use magazine imagery to create your own landscape scenes that explores what it is to live in a city and how our relationship to nature changes based on our own personal situations. More importantly, it is a good excuse to have a lot of fun cutting up images, expanding our creative horizons, and witnessing the magic that is created from new, witty or disturbing new juxtapositions. Plus, collage is a great way to make new friends, and you get to enjoy a delicious brunch after the workshop courtesy of café TATI.
Materials will be supplied, but if you have some specific images you would like to use please bring them. Also, if you have scissors to bring that would be very much appreciated.
The workshop is limited to 10 people, and reservations should be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The workshop is not suited to children under 10 years. For children 11- 14 years please be accompanied by an adult. The event will be hosted in English.
Brunch can be made vegetarian or vegan if required, and is included in the workshop price of €30.
"Collage connects our eyes, our minds, and the muscles in our hands. Collage is accessible and democratic. All you need is some paper, some glue, and a pair of scissors. Collage gets us thinking differently. In the past 100 years, the medium has played a vital role in the advancement of art."
