About the Course
Create mixed media collages combining computer manipulated images, image transfer decals and mixed media art with US artist Georgia Velisaris.
Learn how to dye and distress papers as well as other methods to create your mixed media surface. Then use the computer to alter images and to make them suitable for printing into a transfer. Finally learn how to print the transfer and how to apply it to your surface resulting in interesting mixed media collages.
There will be a variety of images already printed up as image transfers for you to chose from. However, Georgia will show you how to make the images using her laptop and all students will receive instructions. If you wish to bring your laptop along to copy the steps then please do, however this is not essential.
You can turn any of our courses into a short break by staying in our on site accommodation. When you book a residential package you will get discounted accommodation in our stylish boutique hostel located in the centre of Cirencester in the Cotswolds right next door to New Brewery Arts. Our former 19th Century Cotswold stone brewery barrel store has been beautifully transformed into 21st century accommodation, light and well-appointed with a craftsman’s attention to detail. We offer guest accommodation for up to 43 people over two floors in 14 rooms, with a choice of single, bunk, family and double bedrooms, 12 with en-suite facilities.
