Mail art is about sending small scale works through the post!

The tradition of sending decorated envelopes or postcards has long been practised by artists. The envelopes themselves have evolved into their own form of mail art, often sent through the mail with little or nothing in them. Integrating the sender and recipient addresses, and the postage required to send the envelope is often an integral part of the envelope’s design.

In this workshop, Fran will demonstrate how to make a small-scale artwork. Learn about collage, using colour, texture, and image placement. She'll give tips and guidelines on how to use everyday materials to create artistic mail.

Join the snail mail revolution and reach out to others through art. In doing so we can make our own hearts feel better, too.

The workshop is hosted in the Blue Mountains, Lady Bird Studio / Karinya which has expansive views over a valley of trees, the property backs onto the national park.

Please note: The workshop will only go ahead if there are two or more participants - anyone booked will be moved to a new date that suits them.
