Collage Workshop – Torpedo Theater

Collage Workshop – Torpedo Theater
Last Thursday I gave a collage workshop in the small and beautiful Torpedo Theater in Amsterdam, to teachers of the Hotel School (ROC of Amsterdam), as a farewell party for their fellow French teacher who was going to retire. For this special occasion I had brought very old French magazines (1920s, – 1960s) and beautiful old books about traveling, nature etc.
I started on stage, with a presentation of my own work and of the history of collage.Then everybody started off working. I gave tips and tricks when people felt like needing some.

It was an inspired afternoon, with wonderful results!

Lino print (7x7cm) (c) Edith Brouwer, May 6, 2018

During the month of May, Edith Brouwer’s art project is making a linocut artwork (7x7cm) for somebody, inspired by a word / words. I asked her to make something for one of my latest poems. I love what she did. So nice to work and share together, especially with a dear friend!

SIRENES at TOON

SIRENES at TOON


Atlantis

My collage series SIRENES is now on show and for sale at TOON. For this series I have combined images from vintage hair salon magazines as well as from old books about tropical fish. I cut, weaved and intertwined them to make a new, surreal image. Then I stitched them on white cotton cloth with different colors of sewing machine thread, going through and over the image itself, adding a the feeling of running water, water plants and hair.


Selling price: € 75, – each
