From intuitive abstract paint moving on to monoprinting and mark making. Once you have created a stash of beautiful papers, we will turn them into notebooks, origami boxes, cards and other paper crafts.
Mixed media part 1: abstract art
To kick-start this session you will be guided through different processes on how to create unique and intuitive pieces of artwork. We´ll explore colour theory, different kinds of painting mediums, paint, collage structures, shapes, and forms. No need to “fear the white paper”, we guarantee that this session will boost your creative confidence!
Mixed media part 2: monoprinting with gelli plate
Unlike most printmaking which allows for multiple originals, monoprinting with gelli plates will give you a unique original, and that’s the beauty of it! Paint, make marks and then press the paper to catch the unique print from the gelli plate. If you haven’t tried this fun and addictive technique it’s a definite must!
Mixed media part 3: papercraft
“What am I supposed to do with all the papers I´ve made”, you might think? Show them off, obviously! Imagine taking notes at the office in a booklet you made yourself. Or why not gifting an origami box to a dear friend? During this session, we´ll stitch, sew and fold our beautiful painted and printed papers to make notebooks, envelopes, cards, origami boxes.
