Mixed media paper 3 step course

28/08/2018 6:00 pm 12 people limit Open Lab 1300 SEK

If you like to get messy with paper and paint, this is a workshop for you. Mixed media is a great way to explore your creativity. During this three-step course, we will explore different techniques and methods to create unique artwork on paper.

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 step 1: abstract art

Tuesday, August 28 18:00-20:00

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 step 2: monoprinting with gelli plate

Tuesday, September 4

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 step 3: papercraft

Tuesday, September 25th

“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.
