HOLD.FAST, A Collage Workshop

HOLD.FAST, A Collage Workshop

The HOLD.FAST collage workshop sprang out of a love of easing into a new year with some hands on "thinking" in a creative space with others, and this time, my own personal paper stash was flung across table and bench for everyone to rifle through and use as they may.

Collage holds a special place in my creative practice as a way to favour the heart over the head, to respond to images and colour, shape and form from an instinctual place, with speed and lack of preciousness and most of all a sense of play and fun. As soon as the body is in motion, it's like a message to the gods to start the brain ticking over, ideas begin to flow, experiments can be easily achieved, mistakes and accidents cease to exist and permission is granted to make anything simply for the sake of it. It's amazing how often this ease results in uncomplicated beauty and effortless joy.

 Collage is good, but add cocktails from the very excellent Spangled Drongo Bar and Karaage Hot Dogs from OKI Food and..... well I'm sorry but it doesn't get much better than that.

The next HOLD.FAST Workshop is scheduled for March 18th. To find all of the details and to book your own spot, visit the workshop page HERE
