A photo carries lot of memories. 

Now that digital photos have become so cheap and accessible, a handmade photo can sometimes feel a little more special.

In this Portrait Collage workshop, you’ll learn how to turn a digital photo into
a handmade collage. 

You could give it as a gift or keep it as a treat for yourself!

What we will cover?

  • Collage technique
  • How to dissect and sketch different elements of face, body, clothes and accessories
  • Texture making technique using different painting mediums

What to bring

  • A memorable picture of yourself or your friend in your phone. 
  • It will be helpful if you can print it out in a A4 size for tracing purpose (if you’re not
  • experienced with sketching)
