Sat 19th November 2022 - 1pm to 4pm
Members $35 - Non-members $45
max 12 participants
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
In this workshop Rachel will share her unique painterly Collage technique, enabling participants to build textual collage artworks from old paintings and magazines. Rachel herself is inspired by unexpected colour combinations, while being in the 'flow state' where time feels abundant. She thrives on the challenge of bringing disparate items together into a unified work and will lead you on a creative journey of your own. She also loves flowers and typography.
