A Taste of Art: Dada Collage

Date: Wednesday, August 23, 2023
Time: 10:30am - 12:30pm
Venue: The Courthouse

With all materials included and each workshop suitable for beginners, our Wednesday morning Taste Of… sessions give the perfect introduction to a range of artistic styles and techniques.

In this workshop you will create a collage inspired by the Dada movement.

You will use a variety of fashion, garden and nature magazines, as well as found text from newspapers. Work your way through the magazines to pick out home interiors, people and objects. Explore the process of combining collage with watercolour or pen, to realise your final design, under the helpful guidance of our tutor.

Take inspiration from the work of Dada artists such as Kurt Schwitters and Marcel Duchamp to inform your piece. Dada was an artistic and literary movement formed in the early twentieth century as a response to the disasters of World War I (1914–18) and to an emerging modern media and machine culture. Dada artists sought to expose accepted and often repressive conventions of order and logic, favoring strategies of chance, spontaneity, and irreverence

Suitable For: All abilities.

  • You are more than welcome to bring along your own magazines and newspapers to the workshop to aid you in your design.
  • A pre-order form will be available at each session should you wish to buy lunch in our cafe after your workshop. You can view our menu here
