    Workshop: Ideas development in collage with Carolyn Sullivan

    ACT Textile Arts Association’s first workshop for 2021 will be with tutor Carolyn Sullivan.
    “When I am playing at home I spend as much time working with art materials as I do stitching. Collage on postcards is an ideal way of thinking through ideas. While generally I have a specific theme in mind, sometimes an idea will come out of left field because I have been playing,” says Carolyn.
    Postcards are a wonderful way of accumulating art ideas for future works.
    The aim of the day is to share some of my working techniques and give you some time to think of what you might do in the future.

    When: 20 February 2021, 10am-4pm
    Where: Mosaic Baptist Church community centre, Page ACT
    Cost: $95 for members and $105 non-members

    Numbers are limited due to COVID restrictions.
    More details including a materials list can be found here. For bookings, please fill in a workshop form and email it to workshop coordinator Sandra Obst via information [at] acttextiles.org.au.
