Taking inspiration from the Botanic Garden, come and join Caroline Henricksen for a fun, relaxing and creative day paper collaging flowers. Caroline will take you through the process she uses to create her botanical collage pieces, starting with you creating your own collage surfaces using paints, foliage, vintage paper, magazines, old books, wallpaper, and even a toothbrush and scissors – just about anything can be used to collage! Playing with patterns and textures can produce some interesting and quite beautiful results. This workshop is aimed at beginners through to more accomplished artists who want to try something new. Caroline will be on hand throughout to give lots of one-to-one tuition. Students are welcome to bring in their own materials that they would like to work with (for example old prints, poems, books) but everything is provided on the day. Just turn up and create!
Caroline is an experienced botanical artist working in pencil and watercolour. She has a BA (Cons) in scientific illustration and has worked over the years for the Cambridge University Botanical Garden, the Hunterian Museum and Cambridge University Zoology Museum as a freelance illustrator. She teaches both adults and children to paint and draw.
