Collage Workshop at Carmarthen Sketch Club and Art Society

On April 9, 2015 I ran a collage workshop at the Carmarthen Sketch Club. The purpose of the workshop was to demonstrate how collage can give artists total freedom and infinite possibilities in creating very individual work.

We used newspapers, magazines, wallpaper, fabrics, wrapping paper and scrapbook paper as raw materials for building collages. We also used painted watercolour and acrylic papers to which salt, pastel, and varnish were added. One of the more unusual things we did was to recycle old paintings and drawings into new collage pictures.

The photograph illustrates several ways to represent a date palm seed pod using collage. Two entirely different types of papers were used to show the first two pods. As you can see, I was in the middle of developing the third pod using fabric cut out from an old shirt.

I hope to visit the Carmarthen Sketch Club again in the near future. They are a wonderful group of warm, friendly and dedicated artists.
