About the Course

Discover how to upcycle a multitude of often discarded, papers, previously rejected paintings and other materials into works of art.

To begin, the class will decorate and prepare the papers brought to the workshop. While these are left to dry, Ailsa will give a brief demonstration of the processes she uses when creating a collage. She will explain her basic method , with plenty of hints on composition, balancing colours and simplifying the subject. The rest of the day will be about creating your own piece with lots of guidance and one to one tuition from Ailsa.

Ailsa exhibits throughout Suffolk, has been featured in ‘Artist and illustrator’ magazine and recently she was chosen as the front cover artist for the May 2017 issue of the SAA ‘Paint’ magazine.
