Cutting Edge: Collage for Everyone


Details Fee Breakdown:
Tuition: $770

Collage has been used to protest tyranny and to create love letters; to tell fantastical stories and to record family history… We’ll spend this workshop learning the ins and outs of this highly-accessible medium through a series of collaborative guided projects, a field trip, and plenty of hands-on demonstrations. Whether you’re into delicate, intricately cut-out treasures or bold, torn “trash,” Rebekka will share what she has learned in her 15 years of collaging to help you explore a new artistic expression or further hone your craft.

Workshops run from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day
Lunch is included for all participants
