Collage workshop with Emmeline Simpson Fri 14th February 10.15-12.45pm
Friday 14th February 2019 10.00-12.30pm at the Garden Room, Holy Trinity Church, Church Lane, Nailsea, BS48 4NG
Join us in February for this collage illustration workshop. Step away from the busyness of life and find time for yourself to create a beautiful piece to take home and frame!
Emmeline has built a business from her cityscape illustrations which are transferred onto gift-wares such as placemats, coasters and tea towels and sold in retailers, such as Bristol Guild, Pod and the city museum. Emmeline's work originally started from her collage illustrations of her home town of Bristol. During this workshop Emmeline will teach you techniques for building a collage illustration beginning with a line drawing and adding elements such as watercolour and acrylic paint, magazines and newspapers. You will take home your finished artwork, which could be a cityscape or landscape, or something more abstract if you prefer. This workshop does not require advanced drawing skills, but rather a willingness to experiment. Emmeline will advise students individually on composition, exploring options for creating texture and adding different media. Participants can bring an image to work from or use photographs provided by Emmeline as a starting point for their drawing. The Workshop cost is £35 and all materials are provided. On this workshop learn new skills in a small group setting (maximum of 8 participants) which will allow plenty of time for support and advice from Emmeline as you develop your collage artwork. Most participants find they finish their piece during the session ready for framing. The workshop price includes tea, coffee or fruit juice and homemade cake. Please advise on booking if you require a gluten free option. Free on street parking is available around the venue which is just 8 miles from central Bristol. Please note the shipping charge will be refunded once booking is made.
