Why not try for some creative activity this spring! The Culture Club will be hosting a Master Class with Dublin-based artist Camilla Fanning. Camilla will be facilitating a specialised workshop, in which participants will be encouraged to explore their creative side with a range of media, looking at the potential for using up-cycled and found materials. Don't worry if you lack drawing skills as this class is based on using cut-out and collage techniques.
The cost of €60 for this three hour workshop, includes all materials, completed designs to take home and light refreshments.
'In this workshop, we will look at the possibilities of using a variety of rescued and found materials that can be collaged and combined. We will learn to arrange and layer colours and textures to embellish your work. We will use layers and textures of fabrics, papers, jewellery and buttons, custom made papers, old letters, maps and photos, tiny found objects and stitching. Do you have something at home you would like to incorporate - maybe from a special event? Bring these with you and they can become part of your design too!'

Payment may be made in person via Liberties Upstairs Bookshop (Regret no card facilities). Cheques may be made payable to Camilla Fanning.
Booking is essential as Camilla needs to be sure of numbers in advance for her planning and places are limited. Similarly, the course will not run if there is insufficient interest and any bookings will be refunded.
I am an Irish artist based in Dublin working primarily as a printmaker. My primary medium is classical fine art etching. My practice also includes digital arts, (soundscape, animation and video), assemblage and life drawing. I aspire to making an ArtBot. A recurrent theme of my work is collective memory and shared imaginings, often taking the form of landscapes. In assemblages, I consider delusions and insecurities, often referencing games. I have an ongoing interest in the social and cultural impacts of all things digital and cyber, and I blog about these as well as giving the occasional seminar talk.
