Tissue Flower Collage

Partnership with DukeCreate & DuWell

Taught by Christine Holton

About the Workshop

Tissue collage emerged as a unique art technique from Decoupage, a French artistic technique which included gluing cut papers and pictures from magazines onto wood or furniture, to be varnished. Using a similar technique, participants in this workshop will use a range of colors and papers to create a large, radial floral design that can have 3D elements as well.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The first 30 Durham-based members of the Duke community to register will be provided with supplies for this workshop at no cost. An email will be sent prior to the workshop for on-campus pickup instructions.

About DukeCreate

DukeCreate is a series of free, hands-on arts workshops designed to help Duke students, staff, and faculty develop a variety of creative skills.

Workshops are free to all Duke students and staff, with priority given to students. Class size is limited. Students must sign up in advance. Online enrollment for Duke staff opens on the day of the workshop. Staff can also show up 10 minutes prior to a workshop in case a slot becomes available.
