fabric remnantIn daily life i am collector of remnants of fabric, faded images, worn letters, embroidery, cards, old photos. Keepsakes such as these & objet trouvé that you have kept over the years are just the kind of things that you should bring along to our winter workshop. The Alchemy of Assemblage.

Found Objet – A natural object or an artefact not originally intended as art, found and considered to P1430822 (565x648)have aesthetic value. It could be a fragment of an object, that is found (or sometimes bought) by an artist and kept because of some intrinsic interest the artist sees in it. Also known as objet trouvé

As the author of four books, composer of music and many other artistic pursuits, creativity runs through Pia’s daily life. In the workshop,  The Alchemy of Assemblage you will learn from Pia how to approach and experiment with a creative project. During the afternoon you will have an opportunity to play, design, create and fabricate your own assemblage. From this you will gain confidence along with some simple skills that will allow you to explore creative ideas in the future.
The Elements i love folk will provide a table filled with a selection of antique timber wooden boards, small vintage elements, organic materials to add to your assemblage along with basic hand tools to assist in fixing, hanging and attaching pieces….along with nibbles and glass or two of bubbles to keep the creative energy flowing!

You can make it simple or complicated, deciding what elements to use and how to use them as well as what to leave out is all part of the process. Both Pia & I are looking forward to helping you consider all the creative possibilities…
We have only one workshop date available and numbers are limited so as to keep it a personal & hands on experience for everyone on the day ♥
