Collage is a great way of getting the imagination started- flicking through a new pile of magazines, tearing out random pages, just because something jumps out at you- a flash of colour, an interesting texture or a few random words of text all soon start to make connections and you are away.
A workshop, coming up soon, will aim to use collage in 3 dimensions: one of the possible ideas is the tunnel book format. Tunnel books are organised like a theatre set - each layer as you progress further through the tunnel reveals a little more of the scene.
The individual layers are created first before assembling them one behind the other between concertina folds.

This book has a pair of doors on the front aperture, collaged inside and out.
Materials used here are : selected pages from good quality fashion magazines- these have good colour print quality and strong paper, scrap pieces of mount-board and PVA glue.
The workshop will take place on April 4th in Fishguard , Pembs. all welcome. For all the details go to Artwagoncourses or follow http://www.facebook.com/pages/Artwagon/139659642791420
