course overview

Discover the witty art of collage as you play purposefully with pictures and acquire the technical skills to create your own museum-quality pieces. Over two days, in an inspiring salon environment of storytelling, readings and conversation, Deborah Kelly will show you the cutting and composing practices of collage. You will be shown safe methods and tips for getting those very fine cuttings while you start to focus your ‘looking muscle’ to find, build and compose a number of works. Deborah will introduce you to her private collection of obsolete images – a treasure trove of abandoned art and science histories – and show you how to dissect them from their original contexts to make new art from their remains. A selection of papers, cutting mats, acid-free glue and image material is provided, though you are encouraged to bring your own books and images to dissect and resurrect.

Materials list

Collage equipment such a cutting knives and mats will be provided along with source material. However, students are welcome to bring their own material, such as old magazines, art catalogues or textbooks. Older papers work well for collage due to their absorbency.

Any students who may have their own particular collage equipment are welcome to bring them to the class.

A visual arts diary for notes can be helpful.

Protective clothing and covered footwear essential
