Mixed Media Collage Taster Workshop - £35.00 per person.

Most of us have dabbled with collage at some time, but take it to an exciting new level with this fail safe workshop! In her taster course, Tania will provide you with everything you need to create a colourful, contemporary collage using the simplest of materials. You will learn how to transfer a design onto canvas, select your colour palette and apply your materials for the best results. Subject-matter is provided, but be warned, the technique is quite addictive and if you wish to branch out with your own designs you are most welcome to book in for an advanced session. The course is suitable for children provided they are accompanied by an adult, but requires dexterity and uses sharp scissors so is not suitable for young children. Courses are usually arranged on Saturdays at 12-4pm, but please contact Tania if you prefer another time.
















Depending on the speed that you work, you can expect to complete one approx. A4 canvas using paint, drawing materials, a selection of collage materials and glue, plus a full colour image is provided to work from as your starting point. The process will fill the whole four hour session and you may find you need to finish your piece at home, however, if you are a particularly fast worker there will be extra canvasses available at no extra charge. Groups are a maximum of 6 people so Tania can work closely with you to achieve a great result - feel free to bring your friends along or celebrate your special occasion! Tea, coffee and squash are provided in the studio, but you will need to bring your own lunch. There is free parking and a cafe on site, plus ten other studios and free entry to the Red House Glass Cone visitors centre in the historic Glass Quarter, Stourbridge.

Mixed Media Collage Taster Advanced Workshop - £150.00 per person.

**New** for 2018! This course is aimed at competent makers or those who have already sampled Tania's Mixed Media Taster Workshop and become newly addicted to the technique! Tania will provide you with everything you need to create a colourful, contemporary collage using the simplest of materials. You will be guided through scaling up a design of your choice onto a satisfyingly large canvas, selecting your colour palette and applying your materials for the best results. You will be required to bring along your own images and ideas to create your own personal artwork, so please note that your choice of subject matter is key to a great result. It is strongly advised that you consult with Tania prior to the course regarding this. The course may be challenging for children and participating children should be accompanied by an adult.

In addition you will be provided with a little gold leaf to bring glitz and glamour to your piece! You should bring your own images to work from. The process will fill the whole of the two sessions and depending on the complexity of the image, you may find you need to finish your piece at home. Groups are a maximum of 3 people so Tania can work closely with you to achieve a great result. If you have a larger group, are a school or organisation or would like to work on something more ambitious, Tania can come to you, please contact for more information (N.B. there may be an additional travel fee required) - a large group is a great opportunity to create a mural on a theme of your choosing (see photographs below). Tea, coffee and squash are provided in the studio, but you will need to bring your own lunch.
