About the Course
Session 1 | 5 – 10 years Dream Gardens
Have fun making a paper collage of your dream garden, inspired by plant patterns and flowers.
With a menu of coloured paper and templates to choose from, imagine your garden – tropical, potted cactus, beach-side or maybe forest. Templates can be traced around and coloured or cut out and pasted down. How will your garden grow?
Session 2 | 11-16 years: Papercut Bird Haven
Experiment with the techniques of frottage and paper cutting to create a bird haven collage.
Working with the natural textures of wood, stone and foliage; we’ll make rubbings on paper. With these impressions and patterned papers, choose some templates to trace around and cut out. Or, draw your own designs. Perhaps a treetop, bird box or ground bower will be your birds home. Finally you’ll collage the paper cut and patterned papers together to reveal your bird haven.
