Join artist Steph Hartman for a Wednesday afternoon series of collage-making activities for students themed around wellbeing, held in the UCL Art Museum across Term 1. Collage Club is a workshop series celebrating the art of cutting and sticking. Embracing hands-on techniques and using scissors as a drawing tool, Collage Club workshops are perfect for anyone keen to flex their creative muscles and get making without having to produce perfectly proportioned, disciplined drawings. Rip, cut and stick beautiful compositions using materials that include hand-painted papers, colourful sheets and shapes!
