Combining collage strategies that utilise a minimal approach for maximum impact, you'll work both individually and collaboratively to create a small, handmade artists book.

Utilising collage exercises to open up the creative channels, you will work with the group in selecting and refining imagery. Going deeper into the image structure you will explore methods of abstraction, focusing on colour, texture and symbolism.

Later, through the exploration of storytelling and sequencing images, the book will take shape as either a very personal reflection of an inner journey, or an outward expression of the experience within the workshop. You will finish the book with a simple book binding technique and a cover, and it is ready to take home.

Collage Working Club (CWC) is a weekly open workspace for artists working in the medium of paper. Organised in the format of alternate ‘drop in’ sessions and workshops masterclasses, it will have both a regular facilitator whilst also involving the artist community in the sharing of knowledge and skills. Providing materials, education and connections is the primary aim of CWC, and it will do this through the interdisciplinary art of collage as both an art form and a tool for personal growth.

​The group is hosted by visual artist Nina Fraser, and occupies a physical space at Largo Residências, working with Residências Refúgio, a cultural and social project in Arroios, Lisbon.
