Join us for an evening of collage with Brighton artist, Maria Rivans on Thursday 19th January.
Get your tickets here.
Rivans’ art is an otherworldly mix of Pop Art and Surrealism. Optimistic and harmonious, each carefully selected element in her collages is chosen to celebrate the complexity of people and to make sense of the world that we live in.
If you’ve always fancied turning your hand to collage, this art workshop will be your chance to get a sneak peek into Maria’s mind, and to learn all of her tricks for creating impactful, balanced and beautiful collages
Here’s everything you need to know about the event…
Crafting the perfect collage
Back in 2020, Rivans released her book – Extraordinary Things to Cut Out and Collage – where she compiled a selection of backgrounds and thousands of quirky images for budding-collagists to cut out and craft into one-off works of art.
The book contains over 1500 images divided into fun categories like Nature, Alphabets, Arts and Culture and Domestic Life, so you’ll find everything from buildings and butterflies to botanicals to use in your artworks.
For £25 you will get a copy of the book, and two hours of insights into collage. In addition to being able to cut items from your own books, Rivans will bring along elements for you to use, and will provide inspiration for your pieces.
There are backgrounds included in the book, but should you have something you’d like to build your collage around – by all means, bring it along so you can make the collage you’ve been dreaming about.
This workshop is taking place on Thursday 19th January between 7pm to 9pm. Spaces are limited, so grab your ticket here today to secure your spot.
