4-Session Weekend Course
Saturday, February 29 to March 21, 2020 – 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Enshrine personal mementos, objects, photos, and other materials in a unique three-dimensional form that can stand alone or be wall mounted. Working primarily with wood boxes of various types, explore a range of materials for collage and embellishment, including papers, paint, metal fixtures, watch parts, charms, wire, beads, and found objects. Options include adding doors, lighting, and other features to add dimension and interest.
Topics covered include choosing tools and materials, preparing collage papers and boxes, developing a theme or story line, surface preparation, adhesives and other methods of attaching objects, and performing simple image transfers.
Various types of small wooden boxes are provided, but students may bring their own, such cigar or fruit boxes or small crates (no plastic, please).
Some shared supplies are provided. A supply list may be downloaded from this page no later than 2 weeks prior to the first session.
