in its most basic form collage is the technique in which different, unrelated bits and pieces of paper, fabric, found objects, etc. are glued together to create a new, complete picture. i will be teaching an encaustic collage workshop at silvermine arts center on saturday, february 21 from 10:00-3:00. combining encaustic with collage opens up all kinds of new possibilities because we are using the clear medium as glue. since this process involves layering, using lightweight papers (such as colored tissue papers) that will become transparent in the medium, depth and other effects are created that are not easily achieved when just using glue. below is a sample of mine that combines collage with transfers. if interested in this one day workshop please contact silvermine arts center.
