Wildflower Meadow Collage

Be inspired by the beautiful flora, fauna and wildlife of the wildflower meadow at Severn Gorge Countryside Trust and create an original mixed media art piece to take home. The workshop will take place in the beautiful landscape of the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site. Depending on the weather, the session will start with a 10 minute walk outside in order to get inspiration, before the tutor guides you through planning, composition, cutting, and collaging drawings, rubbings and homemade collage papers to create your artwork.

This workshop is suitable for all regardless of drawing experience. You will need to bring a camera (on a mobile phone or iPad is fine). You are welcome to bring your own sketch pad and chosen sketching materials such as pencils, graphite, oil pastel, ink, watercolour paint and brushes but it is not essential as some of these can be provided. Refreshments are available but it would be best to bring a packed lunch.

Date & time: Thursday 23rd June 10am – 3pm. Price: £38.32. Location: Severn Gorge Countryside Trust, The Severn Gorge Countryside Trust, Darby Road, Coalbrookdale, Telford, TF8 7EP.
