Mixed Media workshop with Clare Cosens



During this three hour workshop you will develop and experiment with a variety of mixed media techniques to create your own 8" x 10" mounted piece of mixed media artwork. This workshop also provides the perfect opportunity to develop your Gelli prints (if you have attended a previous workshop). If you haven't attended a Gelli Print workshop you could bring your own images that you would like to work with e.g. photographs, magazine images etc. The workshop will be divided into the following stages: Stage 1 - Inspiration We will look at different artists work to gather inspiration for your mixed media piece. Stage 2 - Design Tips We will explore possible layout designs and experiment with composition, focal points, choosing a colour palette and balance. Stage 3 - Sampling/Techniques We will experiment with a variety of mixed media techniques, developing your Gelli Plate Prints using collage, creating texture with modelling paste and using distress inks to add colour. You will also learn how to die-cut shapes to build embellishments. We will also explore stitch and adding text/phrases. Stage 4 - Creating your own mixed media piece You will then apply your preferred techniques to create your own unique mixed media piece. Clare will support and guide you through this process and help you to achieve your desired results. This workshop is suitable for both beginners or people with more experience that are looking to develop their skills. This workshop is designed to develop your Gelli Plate prints created in a previous workshop with Clare but you are more than welcome to attend the workshop and bring your own images to work with.

What's included in the price?
