Oh, Immerse yourselves in these fantastical ‘bookish’ collages friends!

Aren’t they incredible? And so diverse in their interpretation, showcasing how book pages can be used in myriad different ways to create imaginative art.

Some artists have chosen to use pages from vintage books as background for their silhouette works, some have used the pages as collage medium. While others have made a statement using typography, more again can be found creating lighthearted works using animals.

I am looking forward to our ‘bookish’ draw and collage class these holidays where we will provide opportunity to create our own book-inspired masterpiece. We will share some great artwork and poetry from books and then choose to either use our book pages as background to our drawn work or collage with the pages themselves, torn and cut.

Book pages find a new lease on life through artwork, creating great texture, comical relief or making a statement through the words on pages chosen to be used.

Don’t miss out on this imaginative class, our holiday workshops are booking up fast. Follow this link for further information and to BOOK NOW for this and our watercolour and weaving workshops also!

Quick-snap! Our early-bird special ends Saturday!

_DSC3106-2

There’s Autumn crunch in the air and underfoot, and there’s a special little early-bird fluttering low. She’s singing a sweet song of savings, and diving and looping low to make sure she catches your eye.

If you’d like your children to join our Autumn Adventures in Art series starting in just a few weeks, pop on over to our bookings page because our little early-bird will flit and fly away this Saturday, taking her special prices with her.

We’re collecting and gathering basketfuls of creative ideas and inspiration for these workshops celebrating one of our favourite seasons of the year.  Colour and texture, paint and clay, printing and weaving. And books. Delicious, gorgeous, tingle-worthy books which make our eyes look wide with wonder and our minds giggle and think. We’ve enjoyed the process of choosing and picking books (oh there are so many gorgeous children’s books which inspire us!) and teaming them with autumn-inspired art and creativity.
