Mainframe Workshop: Exploring Collage with Elyse Longair, Nov 26 from 2-4 pm

On Saturday, November 26th, from 2:00 – 4:00 pm, join Elyse Longair for a hybrid interactive workshop exploring and creating collages!

Participants can attend in person at Eastern Edge or online via zoom. Please email easternedgestudio@gmail.com to register for the zoom link.

Collage can loosely be defined by bringing together and reimagining source material. It is an accessible, playful and FUN medium to create with. Elyse will share her own collage practice and methods with us, hoping to ignite our curiosity and imagination as we create our own collages.

Guests are encouraged to bring material to collage with. This can be done by hand (analog) with materials such as paper, magazines, photographs, fabric, paint, pencils, scissors, Exacto knives and glue. Or digitally on a computer with either photoshop or the free, open-source image editor, Gimp https://www.gimp.org installed.

This workshop is free to attend. All ages and skill levels are welcome. Masks are recommended but not required.
