Fabric Paper Collage and Print! - a mixed media collage workshop


About the Course

Join us on the edge of The Lake District National Park for this afternoon mixed media collage workshop.

Using our view across the Bay, with books, maps and words as inspiration create fabulous art.

This workshop is part of mixed media collage week, workshops for you to explore styles and techniques and let your creativity flow!.... and the best bit you don't need to be able to draw to create vibrant art for any of the workshops this week.

By the end of the workshop, you will have a unique work of art to take home and the skills to experiment further.

Our venue is a lovely bright room with fabulous views out across the Cumbrian Bay .. perfect for our creative sessions. And if you would like to stay awhile the hotel is offering fabulous accommodation rates for workshop attendees, contact me for further information.
Details for all workshops this week can be found via the purple My website button

I hope to spend creative time with you soon with love Penny x

Before this workshop I thought mixed media was something artists who could paint and draw did. This wasn't me, so I was very nervous beforehand and even asked Penny not to show anyone my work during the workshop.

Penny was very reassuring and guided me very skilfully throughout the day. And as the afternoon went by my confidence increased and I was happy to share my ideas and work with the group.
I realised she was right you don't need to be able to draw to create fabulous art, and I did!

Thank-you Penny for your patience, help, and support, not forgetting much laughter x

Response from Creative workshops:

I loved this workshop!
Penny really seemed to know how to help us get the best out of the workshop.
We all started from the same place and she skilfully guided us through the techniques so we could create something individual for us.
One of those afternoons that just flowed and seemed effortless, and then bam! you've created something pretty great.
I'm very proud of the piece I made, a collage inspired by the view out across Morecambe Bay, the view from the venue.
I learned so much on the day and my confidence in my own abilities has increased. I now tell people I am creative. I will be back!

Fabulous workshop, I learnt so much in just an afternoon. Penny is an inspiring tutor and her work is beautiful. I finished the day with a lovely piece which will be hung on my wall with pride and a new found confidence in my own creativity . I have already signed up for another of Penny's workshops and can't wait!
