Collage Workshop

Tonight the Boatworks hosted a workshop led by Michelle Bernard, on the topic of making freeform collages with personal mementos. Among the processes explored tonight were rubber stamps, embossing, painting, collage, paper punches, and more. Participants brought materials from home (copies of photos, personal ephemera, etc) and combined them with all the materials provided by Michelle to produce mixed media collages. The occasion for having the workshop is for those who would like to submit a collage about their memories of Belmar to our upcoming Belmar Stories exhibition, but this approach can be used to make two and three dimensional art of all kinds.
