Memento Mori Mixed Media Workshop

10am to 3pm, Jan Melville’s Studio

COST: $90




In this one-day workshop participants will do a collage work and a painting in mixed media on round canvas board. The theme is both Memories and Memento Mori.

For those who would like to bring some personal mementos, they can place these along with collage within a box of their choice. Either an old recycled box or cardboard; black would be good. Cardboard boxes can be found at $2 shops. Please bring the box of your choice with you.

The mixed media work will be in acrylic paints, watercolour for small details, and pencil line work. I will show you some examples of my own works.

Please bring with you lots of cut outs and photocopies of birds, skulls, butterflies, flowers, wings and any old photos that have been photocopied. These are for reference to draw from, and to cut up if required for your box collage. Round canvas board, collage board and some paints supplied. You are asked to bring paints, brushes and pencils or other mediums that you would like to work in with you on the day.

Wear an old shirt or apron and bring a sandwich/fruit for lunch we are not near the local shops. I will provide morning tea
