Collage Club is a craft social for adults hosted by mixed media artist, Frances Prendergast (@piggylipstick).
“I don’t always know what I’m going to make an image of before I start…often it will start from just one item and as I add more, a person and a narrative appear. I always feel like these types of collages are quite sad; the person in my mind is often a refugee or someone who has passed away. I wonder why the objects are apart from their owners…” ~ Jo Waterhouse
In this session, we are exploring the work of textile designer and illustrator, Jo Waterhouse. We will be making our own arrangement of treasured trinkets from found and made collage materials inspired by Jo’s Possessions series; considering the narrative behind each collection and our sentimental attachments to objects. Were they found washed up on a beach somewhere, or discovered in an empty bunker? Are they keepsakes from a lost love, or tools for survival?
Come join us for a fun and cosy morning of cake, chat and collage!
All abilities welcome. Tickets are £10 including tea, coffee and cake from Foundry.
