In this workshop we will investigate composition through the art of collage: approached as an inquiry, an experiment in decision-making and an opportunity for unexpected revelations.

We will explore texture, the aesthetics of text and the possibilities of asemic (wordless) writing. We will examine the concept(s) of wabi sabi (un-tamed beauty) and abstraction and attempt to meet at the crossroads of spontaneity and design.

Each of us will emerge with an original piece(s) of work, which we may then deconstruct/decode/decipher to reveal elements of our own personal symbolism.

Open and accessible to all manner of the curious, intrepid and the skeptical. Limited to 15 spaces. Contact me if you’d like to reserve a space, but can’t afford a ticket.

Materials will be provided, but do bring any scraps of interesting text or images, old books, (to be torn) or other 2-dimentional ephemera, as well as any (quick drying) inks, markers or paints you’d like to work with.
