Women at Large – a
collage workshop – Assemblage is going to Wausau for this great
workshop. We will be creating our large
collages on watercolor paper or rosin paper (your choice), layering different
decorative and handmade papers around a face of your choice. The papers will represent the background and
the clothing of your woman, torn edges, zig zag edges and more to give
texture. Paint and distress daubers will
be used to enhance desired areas. Hands
and feet can be added with paper images.
These portraits will be approximately 18” wide by 48” tall and look like
a scroll when hung on the wall. Come and play! $45 class fee, materials included Register
