Collage & Paste up Workshop

March 26, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Creating collages for public art laneway paste ups

Join Brisbane visual artist Madbutt at Artspace Mackay for a creative collage workshop with a difference! Madbutt has been exploring hand cut and digital collage in her work since 2015, fusing vintage and contemporary imagery to create works for exhibitions and music festivals throughout the world. Workshop participants will experiment with handcut techniques, construct their own collages, then take them to Seventh Lane together to paste them up on an external building wall for all to enjoy! Come join us for a fun, creative opportunity to make your mark on one of Mackay’s exciting Public Art Laneways.

10am – 1pm Sunday 26 March 2023

Workshop Room, Artspace Mackay followed by Seventh Lane (near McGuires Hotel, off Wood St)
