Daytime

A serving tray with raised borders presents a wonderful opportunity to create a few different compositions using decoupage. You will learn to apply layers of paper and build them into a pleasing composition: your own work of art to display and use at home. Once you've learned the technique, you will be able to upcycle other items - all you'll need is time, patience, and a few very affordable materials and tools.

In this workshop

During this half-day workshop, you will select papers from Gabriela's extensive collection to transform a plain wooden tray (supplied) into your unique creation through decoupage. She will guide you through the design process and show you all the tricks involved in applying layers of thin paper to a flat surface.

Did you know?

Back in the day, wealthy classes were using master painters to paint their furniture and decorate their walls and ceilings. However, due to excessive demand and the fact that many people could not afford the works of the masters, an alternative form of decoration developed where drawings from the artists of the day were cut out, glued down and covered with lacquer to resemble original paintings. From this derivation came the alternative term "l'arte del povero" (poor man's art).

I did a tray decoupage workshop with a group of friends. Gabriela is a friendly and inspiring teacher and it sparked an ongoing interest in the technique for me. Her studio is a lovely place to work and has lots of examples of her own work too. With lots of tea and cake along with the class, what's not to like!

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.
