Collage Workshop for Adults

RHA Learning

€30 per person
On 2 Mar, 2024

Led by collage artist and writer Sorcha O'Higgins, you are invited to spend a mindful afternoon at the RHA, leafing through magazines, selecting nice images, carefully cutting or joyfully ripping them out, arranging them, scrapping it and starting again, sticking down the one you like, then taking your own artwork (and maybe even a new hobby) home at the end of the day.

This two hour collage workshop is a chance to unleash your inner artist, learn a new craft and maybe pick up a new hobby. We’ll start with a short overview of the history of collage, before warming up with some fun exercises using our materials and some prompts. Then we’ll take some time to make a longer collage based around a theme that will be shared on the day, and if people are comfortable, we’ll share our work with each other at the end.  This collage workshop will respond to the current exhibitions on view at the RHA, exploring themes of abstraction, memory, dreaming and portraiture.   No experience I required, just some enthusiasm!  Materials Any Magazines, books or paper that you’ll like to use. There will be magazines provided on the day, as well as paper, glue and scissors.    Bio

Sorcha O’Higgins is a collage artist based in Westport, Co. Mayo. With a background in architecture and urban art, she works almost exclusively with existing analogue material to create both abstract and figurative work. She is drawn to bold colours, patterns and contrasting elements, which she then compositionally curates to construct playful, direct and sometimes brazen artworks. Her style ranges from geometric and architectural to fluid and harmonious. She has done bespoke commissions for hotels and theatre productions, as well as editorial work for magazines and newspapers, album artwork for musicians, brand identities, window displays and large scale murals for retail and hospitality, as well as commercial prints and personal work.
