Collage illustration workshop


About the Course

Learn how to create your own illustration using Emmeline's signature style and techniques including collage.

Join us in the artist workshop at Studio 3a, Kingswood Estate for this collage workshop run by Designer & artist Emmeline Simpson.

Please contact me to enquire about the timings of these workshops and to book your place.

Emmeline has built a business from her cityscape illustrations which are transferred onto gift-wares such as placemats, coasters and tea towels and sold in retailers, such as Bristol Guild, Pod and Bristol city museum. Emmeline's work originally started from her collage illustrations of her home town of Bristol.

During this workshop Emmeline will teach you techniques for building a collage illustration beginning with a line drawing and adding elements such as watercolour and acrylic paint, magazines and newspapers. You will take home your finished artwork, which could be a cityscape or landscape, or something more abstract if you prefer. This workshop does not require advanced drawing skills, but rather a willingness to experiment. Emmeline will share advice on composition, exploring options for creating texture and adding different media. Participants can bring an image to work from or use photographs provided by Emmeline as a starting point for their drawing.
