Tissue Flower Collage
Partnership with Duke Arts Create & DuWell
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.
