About this Course

Collage gets its name from the French word ‘Coller’ – meaning to glue. During this 10 week evening course you will explore a wide range of mixed media techniques and learn how express your ideas through the medium of collage. Each session will begin with a little introduction into the history of collage before we start to work and get lost in images, stories and re-imagination of the world around us. This course is suitable for all abilities. Bring an open mind and a sense of adventure.
