Encaustic Collage Cards at The Gallery of Costume

In Arts for Health, Community Arts, Gallery/Museum Projects on 24/02/2015 at 11:38

This workshop with the lively ‘Link’ community group was delivered as part of the groups on-going relationship with the Gallery of Costume. The session was inspired by the geometric and animal prints that feature in the gallery’s collection. An unusual technique of using beeswax to laminate vividly coloured collages was employed to create greetings cards. Some of the group went home with enough cards to see them through a year of birthdays! The group members were kindly assisted by a number of volunteers, including some students new to Manchester and the UK who used the session as a great opportunity to improve their English language- what a lovely way to swap skills!
