House and Home

In this one day course with author, artist and tutor Anne Kelly you will be working from your choice of house or place (building) that holds a special memory for you. We will start by using basic but effective techniques taken from her books. Anne will show you how to create a mixed media collage using items from your collections and charity shop finds. Your piece will be embellished and richly decorated to create a special souvenir or gift. It can be added to a larger piece at a later date if desired.
