About the Course

Opening 25 Aug. 2-metre distancing and smaller groups.

Autumn collage: Come along and capture warm autumnal colours in a personal collage to enjoy throughout the winter months. Based on an interior scene that’s personal to you, this could be a still life, vase of flowers or arrangement of autumn fruit and veg. Enjoy making a set of painted textured papers using a variety of media We’ll use these to cut and assemble the collage. Working with collage gives you the freedom to explore colour combinations and composition, allowing you to reposition motifs and play with shapes. Create an intimate artwork to keep or give as a gift.Gill will help you with expert advice and guidance throughout each stage.

Gillian Ferguson studied textile design at the University of Ulster and worked as a textile designer in the textile print industry for 15 years. She now works as a surface pattern designer and art educator from her studio in Silverdale. To create designs for the home furnishing market she collages textured papers in Photoshop to form the motifs. As she loves to get her hands sticky she creates one-off collages, working with found papers, papers from old books and painted textures.
This workshop will be at Cowshed Creative, based in a converted Lakeland barn on our traditional family farm. The art studio is a stunning open plan space with plenty of room to wander outside and take inspiration from the amazing Lakeland landscape and environment of the peaceful Kentmere valley. Make it a special break and stay in one of our luxury camping pods on the farm. Check out our website for details.

All our tutors are carefully selected professionals and experts with extensive teaching experience. Whilst this is a relatively new venture, George, who has set up Cowshed Creative, has many years of experience programming and running creative courses at the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal and for Cumbria Adult Education.
