This 'Collage' course tesselates with my other technique based courses, 'Print' and 'Draw' to show you how to build a vibrant, exploratory mixed-media sketchbook. Through videos, text and stills I show you the different ways that I use collage. You will be encouraged to try different tasks so that you can begin to experiment and find ways to enhance your own practice with the delights of collage!

What's included in the price?

*Content for this course has been mostly taken from my Garden Sketchbook course so if you've done that you will have covered what I teach here. For those who wish to progress from this course on to Garden Sketchbook there is a discount code offered on completion.* If you love bold shape and mixed-media this course is for you! If you enjoy sketchbook play, then this course is for you! If you want to work bolder and more intuitively then this course is for you! My sketchbooks are a meeting place for texture, mark, drawings and pattern, usually inspired by nature. I love to build the pages with these different elements. In this online class I will show you the different ways I use collage in my sketchbooks. It's a joyful and satisfying way to add colour and texture to your sketchbooks. I will help you build your creative confidence. If you've lost your creative rhythm, I will guide you through ideas that you can use in your creative development work. You will end the course with inspiration and techniques for building layers of drawing, pattern and adding collage to enhance and enliven your sketchbook pages.

Hello! I am Helen. Over the time of my creative work I realised I take great enjoyment from processing ideas in sketchbooks, gathering and using sketchbooks as starting points for future projects. I can help you get past the fear of the white page. I can help you fall in love with creative process. I can help you stop being obsessed with the end point of art and find a step by step way to creative flow. Each workshop covers a part of what I do - making sketchbooks, drawing with confidence, printing pattern - all inspired by the wonders of nature. I want you to come away from a class feeling empowered and excited about the potential of your creativity.
