At Ged's workshop you will learn...

From the French 'coller' meaning 'to stick together', collage is an accessible technique of art-making by assembling selected images or materials to create wholly individual works of art.
It's an experimental journey of discovery, blending the simple hand-crafting of shapes, colours and forms through the playful process of relaxed, meditative visual editing.
The collage workshop runs from 10am to 2pm on Sunday February 6th, 2022 - check https://beaconsretreats.com/ for more info.
