Indulge yourself with a fun, beautiful & creative weekend! 
Day one: Gelli-printing and Watercolor: creating our materials
Inspired by the garden, we gather and create our materials from scratch ,  first working collaboratively to watercolour the tissue paper that will become layers of colour and light   and then individually gelli-printing directly from grasses and foliage to make evocative impressions for collage. NO drawing necessary! (Unless you want to, of course!)
Day two: Collage and acrylic on canvas
With all the beautiful sheets of colored tissue and array of botanical prints  ready, today we will play and experiment with compositions and combinations, layering the tissues and prints into your personal interpretations, your visual poems and songs that capture your response to the gardens.
Class limited to 8 students due to classroom space.
Materials fee: $20 includes
All the materials for the gelli printing. 
All tissues, glues and mediums
1  20cm x 50 box canvas.
When you enroll, I’ll send you a short materials list, and optional list of things that could personalise and enhance your artwork, but all you really need to bring  are watercolours, a few acrylics, an open mind and an enthusiasm to play!
