Memory and architecture

Join visual artist Hazem Harb in this intensive collage workshop suitable for artists of all levels, from beginners to advanced.

Collage describes both the technique and the resulting work of art in which pieces of paper, photographs, fabric and other materials are arranged onto a backing. It can be a collection or combination of various things intentionally collected or randomly picked. This workshop is inspired by Hazem Harb's visual art practice and will explore the built environment. Over the course of three sessions, participants will learn different forms of collage techniques and use them to create architectural spaces and build narratives to populate them. By experimenting with various textures, materials and mixed media and exploring with colour, tone, line and composition, they will create two-dimensional and three-dimensional works.

By the end of the workshop, participants will have acquired a solid understanding of fundamental collage techniques, possessing the confidence and ability to apply it within their art practice.
