This Fall Martha presents a class that focuses on the rich techniques available when working with, or incorporating collage:

Collage Plus with Martha Cole, 28 Oct. – 1 Nov., 2015

A little about the course from Martha:

What are the crossovers between mixed-media collage, the textile media and the book arts?   What can we, as textile artists, contribute and how do we make our work unique in this very popular genre? These are the questions I asked myself and this workshop explores and shares my answer with you.

For openers, there’s Wheat Paste! Mixed with textile paints, it is an very expressive medium that not only lets you make a wide range of individual marks and textures but is completely compatible with stencils, rubber stamps, and It’s a paste, after all – ready to go for collage purposes. We’ll explore the wide range of iron-on adhesives that are available to us as well as iron-on transfers which allow for digital imagery and text which can be transferred to a wide range of materials offering further stitching opportunities.

As well as these materials and techniques there will be some exercises on how to proceed when presented with so many possibilities. For sure, we all have LOTS of “stuff” that can be used in mixed media collage!   Join me and we’ll figure out how to use up some of it.
