Lucy’s Workshops

Come and have a go at creating your own original collage and mixed media art. It’s easier than you think!

Cutting, ripping, tearing, glueing – collage is a fun and creative outlet that is accessible to everyone of all ages and skill levels.

In my ‘Introduction to Collage Workshop’ I will show you how to just START and free your inner artist. Perfectionism and expectation are the biggest killers of creativity, so I will help you to let go of these and embrace mistakes – which is a metaphor for life, right?

Not only is collage an environmentally friendly way to make art, it is a great way to clear your mind, focus on the present, unwind and have a light lunch in the company of others.

Based at Firstsite in Colchester, Essex, my Introduction to Collage Workshop is perfect for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle, to create something beautiful and to relax with a few like-minded souls.

Expect lots of colour, lots of fun – even those with no experience will amaze themselves! Go home with a unique and quirky collage you have made and plenty of inspiration.

Basic materials are provided, but feel free to bring your own. No experience necessary, just enthusiasm! For ages 16+.

A light lunch at the Firstsite café is included.
