Craft Workshops: Collage

Collage is the art of assembling and arranging papers to create a decorative surface or picture. First create backgrounds with paint, gelli plate prints and pan pastels, then using pictures cut from magazines, text from newspapers in different languages, altered and painted papers, wrapping papers and hand-made papers, you can create a work of art with a message or just a beautiful surface which can be used for a wide range of purposes. You can then add print, paint, doodles and even speech bubbles to enhance the finished piece using paint pens and permannt markers.
