Drawing with Scissors Paper Collage Workshop

Unleash your inner artist and explore the use of painted paper to create collages.



2.5 hours Class size 1 to 12

label $95 (Afterpay available)

The workshop starts with an introduction to artists and illustrators who use this technique, and then you will create your own painted collage papers. You will then ‘draw with scissors’ exploring layering using painted textures and different colour palettes to create your own designs. You will be encouraged to experiment and explore your creativity throughout the workshop. You can follow templates or create your own designs - the choice is yours.
Drawing with Scissors is a technique used by the French artist Henri Matisse to create lines and shapes with coloured paper. Matisse began to explore collage using painted sheets of paper and cut into intricate shapes and forms in his 70s as his health restricted him from painting. Perfect for artists of all levels seeking a fun and enjoyable way to explore your imagination.
Sophie, your teacher, is a graphic designer, illustrator, educator, and maker and owner of Scoops Design. When she is not working in her studio, Sophie is teaching in Visual Communication at University. She loves sharing her knowledge about drawing, typography, and image-making with students.

Creating balance with creativity & connection

Made by Me Workshop is about helping people to connect with their "inner creative" and have some fun while making beautiful things from quality materials in our friendly & vibrant studio space in the heart of the inner west!
Established in 2017 after Rebecca Doyle decided to take a career break and chose to revisit her childhood love for arts & crafts. Rebecca grew up in a large family where money was tight, after school activities where mostly homegrown and usually involved a sheet of cardboard, a glue stick and some glitter! It is probably no surprise to learn that Rebecca followed a creative path to study Fashion & Textile Design at University!
After a few more decades (than Rebecca will publicly admit to) and a long and varied career in the fashion industry, Rebecca wanted to get back to creating beautiful, one-of-a-kind objects - Made By Me Workshop is the result of where this path led.
Rebecca loves that moment of pride that comes over each participant's face when they look at what they have created and say to themselves "Wow - I made this & I love it!"
Made by Me Workshop run a variety of creative workshops, hen’s parties, private parties and corporate events from their warehouse space in St Peters including Resin Art, Resin Jewellery & Mould Making, Soap Making, Terrazzo Homewares, Punch Needle, Macrame and many more.
