Creating Collage Poetry

Combine elements of poetry and collage in this hands-on workshop led by Spokane poets Kat Smith and Nance Van Winckel. We’ll cut, paste, combine, and erase to bring together words and images from a variety of sources — “pawing through popular culture like sculptors on trash heaps,” as writer Annie Dillard puts it. You’ll go home with an original piece of visual poetry, along with the skills to create more on your own. Source materials will be provided, but feel free to bring any books, magazines, postcards, etc., to incorporate into your poetic collage. All experience levels welcome.

Eco Paper Printing

Instructor: Nan Drye

Students will learn the eco printing on paper process. All materials and equipment are provided by the instructor and/or Art Salvage. Students will learn the basics of applying 2 different mordants to the paper and then layer the papers with plant material for steaming. Then we will open up the paper to see our results. The paper is ready to go home that day and when completely dry is great for greeting cards, collage, or other paper crafts. Students should end up with about 20 sheets of paper measuring approximately 6" x 4". Students will receive a syllabus to take home so they can repeat the process. Feel free to bring a snack and drink for yourself.
