Contemporary Collage Workshop

Learn how to make a collage and get inspired by collage art ideas



3 hours Class size 1 to 60     label $60

"Collage is all about the recycling, reinterpretation and reprocessing of our collective past, present and future." - James Gallagher, Cutting Edges 2011

 

Contemporary Collage workshop is a great introduction into creating beautiful and striking collage. But it's not just for those who are new to collage; those who have cut and pasted before will also master something new during the workshop. You'll learn about specific collage styles, using colour, balance, texture, form, glueing and image placement. All materials are provided with over 200 books on Nature, Architecture, Photography, Sport, Science and plenty of fashion and vintage magazines sourced by the SCS.

The collage class will be run by SCS founder Kubi Vasak and member Liz Peniazeva. You’ll have 3 hours to create your work, we’ll spend time sorting images, creating great layout and image positioning and finally glueing works. 

Bring a friend or make a new one on the night. This class is all about getting in the creative collage zone!

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get
    • • Take home 3 works in a SCS folder to keep them safe.

      • A great variety of books, magazines and other material, glue, scissors, paper.

      All our workshops are run with materials from the National Art website. 

What to bring

• Bring your creativity and excitement!

• Feel free to BYO

Work-Shop is a creative concept that will broaden your horizons and help you unleash your inner awesome. We provide affordable short courses in life skills and alternative art. We’ve teamed up with Australia’s brightest creative minds to share their knowledge and help teach you a new skill. From 3D printing and stencil art through to music and gardening – life skills and personal development through to cooking doughnuts and mushroom foraging, we offer a broad range of fun and creative short courses to suit our time poor lives. We will inspire you to pick up that pen, paintbrush, hammer or sewing machine and flick the switch that will kickstart a whole new way of life.

Community values lie at the heart of our project. We collaborate with local artists and industry experts to teach classes and utilise local suppliers for any materials needed. We also provide a creative environment for emerging artists to produce and sell work, and meet like minded individuals. Work-Shop will be a space for everyone, with a rotating schedule of art shows, information nights on local issues and a whole range of events and community initiatives.

There were loads of materials in a lovely studio. The teachers were knowledgeable and encouraging but also let you explore your own work. Highly recommend.

Claire Pickard May 2021


Loved the tables heaving under paper treasure of vintage books and magazines, very easy going but creatively inspiring presenters. Shame about the switch to Friday evening Saturday arvo is a better fit for me for an art workshop. Personally also would prefer smaller group, higher price for better learning experience - otherwise loved it!

Julia Avenell May 2021


Second time doing this work shop and just as much fun the second time round. Teachers are so encouraging and helpful it’s easy to come home with some great results.

Amanda Hickey May 2021


Great! This was an excellent workshop. The teachers gave a little history of the art form before taking us through the exercises. They were clearly & thoughtfully explained & very encouraging of our attempts. I feel as though I learned a lot about collage in these 3 hours.

Carol McFadden Feb 2021


Teachers were good. Materials were excellent and venue was great. It was a very relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere

Jessica Soliman Feb 2021

Christine Carey Feb 2021


Amazed at how much was fitted into the three hours - a short history of collage, lots of information and guidance before and during the making of each collage. The venue is great and the teacher was very professional but set a relaxed atmosphere. I loved the slideshow of collages while we were working as it gave ideas and inspiration. I am very keen to attend the next collage class.

Vanessa Marie Feb 2021


Had such a great time attending this with my Daughter. I was looking for something different to do than the usual movies/dinner/shopping that we normally do together. Highly recommend this class! It was so much fun, great value and the teachers were super helpful.

Very enjoyable evening. Both teachers were experienced and enthusiastic about their art. Everything was supplied (a real bonus) with the option of purchasing a well priced kit to take home. My only negative feedback is that the class fizzled out - people just drifted out, and it would have been great to have a show and tell at the end.

Tylira Miller-Crispe Aug 2020


The female teacher was lovely. The male teacher was a bit preoccupied making his own artworks

The facilitators were friendly and showed some inspiring examples to spark ideas. Their time management was good too. The venue was well-lit – the room was quite warm though. The materials supplied were great and lots of them so nobody needed to scramble for them!

von Dekker Feb 2020


The Class was well organized - but I was disappointed that the Teachers basically sat and did a collage while it was happening.

I expected them to put more time into explaining the Art of Collage - there was a very quick general intro which I could have done with a quick google search. I would like to know why they do what they do? How do they like to work. Why? Break downs of work they have done.

Extra tools would have helped. Scissors ,Paper ,Books & Glue was all they supplied.

Teachers chatting with people more during the class would make for a much more engaging experience.

Zoe Moreton Feb 2020


The cut and paste session was very relaxed. Great amount of materials to create and very chilled vibe. The three hours went so fast.

Naomi Cheetham Feb 2020


The structure provided made this class worthwhile. It was helpful to look up now and then at the slides that showed examples.

Alexandra Karnasopoulos Feb 2020


Instructors were fantastic and such amazing artists too. The examples and ideas were inspiring and the books/magazines and materials were brilliant; such a variety.
What a great space.
I could have done with a little more light for the finer cutting but I think that’s just my old eyes ;)
I think a slightly smaller class would have been good - just for a little extra space.

Paper Craft and Ink workshop review by Alexandra Karnasopoulos Sydney

Jean Burke Feb 2020


The workshop had a great balance of mini-teaching about the history of collage and collage artists, together with making 3 collage artworks. Each took half an hour or an hour, with guidance provided by enthusiastic and knowledgeable teachers. We were supplied with 3 A4 papers and scissors to use. I got into the flow so the time went fast,

Contemporary Collage Workshop review by Jean Burke Sydney

Annaliese Legge Feb 2020


My partner and I had a great time today at the Sydney Collage Society’s beginners collage workshop. They had plenty of material to work with and 3 collage exercises to complete, plus plenty of examples to inspire us. Only complaint is the lack of cutting tools - only a set of old scissors were provided. A blade would’ve been good too. (Maybe bring your own?).
We’ll be back for the advanced class. Thanks again!
