Our memories are a very important part of who we are – our histories, our relationships, and our experiences. Memory Collage is an opportunity to think back, reflect on our memories and make art work using traditional and contemporary techniques and processes inspired by the past and how the past affects the present.
This could involve using old family photographs to make paintings from, or creating 3D scrapbooks with a range of collage materials.
No entry requirements

Together with the tutor, you will have the opportunity to explore various collage techniques, which could involve elements of drawing, painting and basic printmaking. We will look at the importance of the ‘visual elements’ (Line, Tone, Form, Shape, Space, Pattern, Texture), and how to use those to make exciting and effective visual outcomes. These could include – Collages from copies of old family photographs and articles using photo-transfer techniques and printmaking
- Watercolour paintings to be framed/exhibited
- Scrapbooks or Journals using drawing techniques and collage material to illustrate stories from the past
- Portraits of friends and family members
