Collage as a medium allows us to take chaos from the world around us and transform it into art. Whether through a political statement, identity exploration, sensuality, or the acknowledgement of beauty, collaging helps us make sense of the world.
Most importantly, college is about having fun, stepping outside your creative comfort zone and experimenting with different materials.
Using old magazines, books, plants, flowers and fabrics, Astrid’s multi-media collage workshop is a space to share creative ideas, practice mindful making and come out at the end with a work of art.
