What you will do
7 hour workshop
In this workshop you will learn how to create an original picture using a combination of painting and collage. You do not need any special skills to take part so don't worry if you can't paint or draw! Gabriela will guide you through the technical process and help you design a composition that works. By the end of the day you will leave the studio having completed a picture that you will probably want to hang on the wall when you get home.
You will use acrylics, printed papers and magazines from Gabriela's extensive collection to create your very own masterpiece on strong card stock (supplied). Alternatively, you can bring your own support (a flat surface such as a piece of wood or a stretched canvas) or purchase a 40 cm square canvas at the studio for £10.
All materials plus refreshments and a light vegetarian lunch are included in the cost of the workshop.

About your host, Gabriela Szulman Art
Gabriela is an artist and maker. She creates prints and collages, greeting cards, jewellery and scarves with images inspired by memory, nostalgia and a love of everything vintage.
Her work is often humorous and whimsical – unless her romantic side takes over and then you enter into a fairy-tale territory of old-fashioned script, pages of books and music scores populated by chivalrous gentlemen, glamorous ladies, butterflies and rabbits. She blends a fusion of painting and digital media – acrylic, watercolour and ink with digital print – onto paper and canvas to create pictures, quirky greetings cards and a range of “art to wear” which so far includes silk scarves and a jewellery collection.
Old photograph albums, vintage documents, magazines, books, cards, knitting pattern books and scraps of writing are things that make Gabriela very happy. Second-hand bookshops, junk shops, market stalls, attics and long-forgotten boxes are her treasure trove.
In addition to her own creative pursuits, she is passionate about inspiring other people and sharing her skills, so she devotes a good portion of her time to teaching.
You are welcome to bring your own images or anything else you find inspiring but it's not absolutely necessary as you will find plenty of materials and inspiration in the studio.Please wear suitable clothes as you'll be using paint and glue. Bring an apron if possible.
