More info about the course:

Using tissue paper, a variety of other papers and muslin learn to create a variety of different materials that can used as backgrounds for both textiles and mixed media collage.  The materials that you will make are all extremely versatile for use in any mixed media projects as they can be printed, cut, torn, stitched and embellished with foils.
No previous experience is required just a desire to play, experiment and learn some new techniques.
Following tutor led demonstrations with examples of how to use the materials the sessions will be very hands on as you work through the creation of a number of different pieces.

The techniques which will be covered are
• Fabric Paper
• Laminated Tissue Paper
• Crumpled Paper Fabric

Comprehensive handouts will guide you through the process and enable you to produce further materials at home.

By the end of the session you will have created at least one sample of each of the materials and had the opportunity to discuss how you could develop your work further.
