Resin Collage in Barnboard Frame
April 20 2019 @ 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Create your very own unique resin art collage that is sure to be a treasured keepsake.
This workshop has never been offered before and is the idea of artist BerylAnne Hodgins who wanted to showcase a photograph of a family member or special scene surrounded by embellishments, shattered glass, glass gravel, beads, lace, epherema, etc. You will be designing your collage directly on glass and encasing your items in resin which hardens and is completely see through allowing sunlight to pass through your piece.
Every barnboard frame is also handcrafted locally and has amazing warmth and personality. Frames can be selected in advance upon payment of the workshop and that way you can pick which one appeals to you. I will forward you the selection of frames and hold it for you until the workshop.
Participants will be working with resin which requires a curing period overnight so it is not recommended to take your artwork home with you after the workshop. You will be able to pick it up the next day (or make arrangements for an alternative date).
If you have any keepsakes or special mementos, you are encouraged to bring them with you and we will see if they can be incorporated into your piece. There will be many other supplies included in the workshop fee for you to use, some of which are: costume jewelery, lace, brass and silver filigrees, glass baubles, shattered glass, coloured glass shards, vintage buttons, decoupage, beads, keys, coins, ribbon, pressed flowers and anything else we can find in my home studio.
You will be required to bring the photograph(s) that you will be using as your focal piece. Keep in mind that our working space on the glass will only be 8×10 so size the picture accordingly (suggested 4×6 or 5×7 max). If you need help with that process, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 403.483.7270
Dress in old comfortable clothes; refreshments (coffee, tea, water, pop) and cookies are provided but feel free to bring your own beverage/snack if you wish.
Registering: Preferred method of payment is by e-transfer to email@example.com or if you prefer, you can use Eventbrite and pay directly online.
