Artist Jacqueline Mair works internationally as an artist. She has an MA in printmaking from the Royal College of Art and has taught at the University of Portsmouth UK and the Savannah College of Art and Design, in both the USA and Lacoste, France.
Compared to other art forms, Collage requires few tools or supplies and anyone with an appreciation and love of composition can do it!
Before you create any collages, Jacqui will show you how to make your own collage papers using monoprinting techniques without the use of an etching press.
She will also discuss the sorts of papers that are suitable for collage and show you some of her own work to demonstrate the wonderful compositions that can be achieved with a pair of scissors and a pot of glue.
All materials are provided but bring your own scissors if you have a small pair of sharp scissors with a point. Jacqui uses Fiskars Needlework scissors 13cms orange handle and she says these can be purchased through Amazon. You are encouraged to bring your own papers as well, if you have any favourite ones at home but Jacqui will bring a range of papers that she’s willing to share with the class.

Jacqui says “I have been collaging for most of my life; I trained as a printmaker and found that the process of layering is very similar to collage. Over the past thirty years I have taught mostly part time at many art colleges and universities throughout the UK and most recently in the USA. I have worked as a freelance illustrator and sold work at exhibitions and to private collections throughout the world. I think my major love is paper and I am at my happiest with a very sharp pair of scissors and a glue pot, cutting and pasting and drawing with scissors. I hope this excitement will feed through for everyone throughout the day! “
