Join artist Alison Waters for a two-part workshop to explore colour and collage and create a large scale concertina book for public exhibition.

As part of Lime’s Create.Connect.Unwind+ Festival May ‘22 we’ve commissioned artist Alison Waters to work with MFT staff to create a large-scale concertina book.

Spring inspires many people to think about the future. During these two workshops you will explore colour and collage and work alongside colleagues to make a unique record of your hopes for the year ahead.

This workshop is accessible for ALL levels and delivered in 2 parts, please make sure you can attend both sessions.

Part 1- Tuesday 5th April 5-7pm - Take some time to think about and share your experiences over the last 2 years and your hopes for the future. Use a variety of materials to create papers to collage, exploring colours to represent hope

Part 2 – Tuesday 12th April 5-7pm -Learn how to create a colourful collage expressing your hopes for the future. Work independently or with colleagues to create a series of pages to feature in the large-scale concertina book.
