What you’ll do
Irises burnt out from a deluge of computer tabs and lurid pixels? Trade in your iPhones and IdeaPads. Pick up some scissors and pritt-sticks, and produce your very own risograph inspired collage print here at Hato
Whether you’re a nascent Matisse, incipient Schwitters, or just someone who likes to cut and stick (who doesn’t!), participants of all abilities are invited to come and enjoy the Hato takeover.
Chip chopping magazines, newspaper clippings, ribbons, coloured paper and prints and reassembling them anew is nothing if not nostalgic. The technique itself dates back hundreds of years. Each session features a smorgasbord of quick and quirky activities, from speed collaging to collaborative image making. Aimed at traversing the playful schoolroom, the passionate studio and the peculiar Surrealist hideout.
We will also introduce you to the wonderful world of riso printing - a Hato speciality. The environmentally friendly printer, which uses soy-based inks in a novel and exciting ways, will add that extra flourish to your collages and add a unique spin on the art of collage.
Expect a treasure trove of materials to work from - papers, glues, tapes (no pens or pencils allowed!) - as well as refreshments to keep you bubbling through the day.
Collage Club was founded in 2014 by Steph and since then popped up all over London.
All materials are provided.
Please feel free to bring along your own artworking materials (but please make sure they are all A3 or smaller greyscale print outs, no USB please as we are unable to print them out here in the studio). You can refer to our FAQ page for more information.
