About

Are you a creative interested in learning more about personal mapping and collage?

When we think of collage, we often imagine flipping through magazines to find just the right word or image. But in this workshop, we will be making a collage with our own content to map out our daily lives.

Mapping gives us a set of tools to visually layout the intangible, while collage allows us to create connections between things that we couldn’t see before. We will use both of these ideas in the workshop to create a work of personal collage art.

Before the workshop, we challenge you to a scavenger hunt to gather potential collage materials. Please bring these objects and anything else you might like to add to your collage. We will supply the surface, adhesives, and various other papers and collage supplies to compliment your own items.

The workshop will be held primarily in English.
This workshop is for creatives of any skill level, so we hope to see you there!
