Needed: 3 adult participants to test run my first pocket mirror workshop at a discount. This trial will be a 4 hour class, a bit longer if needed as this is a trial. You get to make three 3-inch pocket mirrors. One side is a mirror and the other side contains your collage.
In this workshop you will learn an image transfer technique that will give you more creative options to add to your collage arsenal. With an image transfer you can create more complex compositions. The see-through qualities of the transfer allows you to play with layering — showing details, colours, and shapes that are under your image layer.
Before class, you will need to email me two digital images or illustrations (could be your own or something from a book) that you’d like to use for your mirrors. Images can be at 72 dpi at Fine quality in your digital camera setting, images at 300 dpi are also fine. You might decide to work with one image and create three different compositions or you might find that only one image works well for this technique.
You will also have access to my typewriter to easily add your own text as well as a large variety of materials for collage; and rubber stamps. You will come out with 3 pocket mirrors. See more examples of my pocket mirrors here. You can bring your own collage materials and rubber stamps.
Requirements: email me your digital images before class or bring a book that has images you’d like to work with
When: Saturday, October 29, 11 – 3
Trial price: $45, max 3 students (adults only)
