Collage Workshop | Sarah Stewart

Sunday 29 April 2018

This collage workshop will focus on experimenting with the process of altering or recontextualizing found text and images to create a new work. I feel that using found text and imagery for these exercises is integral to the process as it allows for meaning and narrative to be communicated through the juxtaposition of elements that otherwise have been divorced from their intended context.

We will discuss the relationship between text and image, different ways of working with found materials, and participate in a few guided exercises which can be used as a starting point to create a small work using provided materials. This exercise can either be used to create a finished work or be used a starting point for further exploration.

Email sarah.m.j.stewart@gmail.com to confirm attendance.

This is a FREE event!

Please bring:

  • a writing utensil and paper
  • scissors
  • optional* magazines, printed materials, or any anything you wish to incorporate into a collage.

Collage materials and snacks will be provided!

I am a Winnipeg based interdisciplinary artist and designer, as I have practices as both a fine artist and as a graphic designer and I have been finding myself increasingly intrigued by the overlap between these two modes of creating work. In particular, I am interested in the ways that both art and graphic design approach communication and experimenting with various strategies across both disciplines. I generally work with mediums such as typography and text, collage, sculpture, and installation.
