4 hours
Over 10 people have attended this class


An exclusive opportunity for all levels of experience to participate.

Learn to play purposefully with pictures and acquire the technical skills to create your own museum-quality, hand-made collage.

Jacqui Stockdale introduces you to her private collection of enticing images, a treasure trove of abandoned art history books, old drawings and textured papers, and shows you how to cut them up and make new art from their remains. 

Over one intensive session, she will focus and exercise your visual literacy as you work side by side.  A selection of papers, cutting mats, cutting implements, acid-free glue and inspiring image materials will be provided.

Participants are encouraged to bring sharp scissors if that is their preferred cutting tool.

Jacqui’s collage workshop was inspiring, absorbing and a lot of fun too. Jacqui is an excellent teacher and generous in sharing practical tips to help achieve professional collages. A wide range of materials were on offer. Everyone worked with real focus, guided by Jacqui and some wonderful collages were created. I would highly recommend this workshop.
Great workshop. Jacqui was an excellent teacher and explained everything in full. A very relaxing and pleasant mothers day afternoon. Highly recommended as I travelled from northern country Vic to attend. Michelle Thornton
Art class Co with Jacqui Stockdale at the helm made for a delightful day. Working in the artist’s own private space made for a delicious day of connecting with your soul and other lovers of art in the room. Jacqui is a wonderful teacher with years of experience. The safety net of Jacqui’s experience allowed us to ask many questions to deliver the best possible personal outcome. My favourite line of the day I from Jacqui ...’as you collage you get ideas for other projects. I am a photographer and it was great to move away from what I do into another creative land. I highly recommend this uplifting day, 4.5 hours when by like an hour!
