Creative Play Sundays! Adult Workshops
Kia ora all!
So I've been a bit MIA this year, but that doesn't mean the scheming has stopped! :)
One of the ideas I have dreaming up has been with Tania, the owner of Logan MacLean Cafe in Waipu... now I can finally announce that I will be running a series of Creative Play Sundays! Workshops in May and June!!!
I have decide to start with a series of 4 collage workshops which will have a varied theme/approach each week. Meaning you can safely attend all 4 of the workshops to build your skills and a create diverse range of artworks.
My website is still on holiday as I figure myself out so tickets can be purchased through eventbrite...
Here is a run down on the workshops...
Creative Play Sundays... Let's Collage!
This series of 4 collage workshops will provide you with the opportunity to experiment with a range of vintage and second hand papers to create unique and original artworks.
Each workshop will have an individual focus on varying collage approaches, processes, techniques and materials.
Weekly focus for each workshop…
Sunday 21st May - Distorted reality collages
Sunday 28th May - Geometric and abstract collages
Sunday 4th June - Text based collages
Sunday 11th June - Photo collages
By attending all 4 workshops you will have the opportunity to build your art making skills and create a diverse range of collages. Tickets for all 4 workshops are offered at a special discounted rate of $120, that's 4 for the price of 3!!!
Individual workshop tickets can also be purchased if you would like a taster into the world of contemporary collage. It' s a very fun place and well worth a visit! :)
What to expect...
All workshop materials are provided, you're also welcome to bring along additional papers, books or magazines you would like to work with. Workshop prices include a delicious piece of cake and cup of tea to keep you fuelled up while you're creating.
Each week I will provide exemplars along with a variety of prompts and resources to spark ideas for participants to produce their own original artworks.
I will be readily available throughout the workshop to answer questions and assist.
Each workshop will take place from 3:30 till 5:30 pm in a supportive, relaxed environment at Logan MacLean Cafe, Waipu. Workshops are strictly for 18yrs +
Whether you're a collage pro or a complete novice, these creativity-filled workshops are for you!

Please note, workshop numbers are limited. If you have a group of 6 or more, a private workshop can be arranged, please contact me to discuss.
More about your workshop facilitator…
Kia ora, I’m Kylee Newbold! I have designed this series of workshops to foster creativity and playfulness. They are a chance for adults from all walks of life to explore art making in a supportive environment where everyone is learning through exploration and experimentation.
I am a highly experienced Visual Arts Educator with 15 years experience working with both teen and adult learners. My ethos as a facilitator is to share skills, techniques and approaches and for learners to explore these as they please to create their own unique and original outcomes.
I am a practising artist with a passion for colour, bold patterns and continually building my skillsets. I love reimagining existing materials and incorporating these into my artworks to reduce their environmental impact. Please check out newbolddesigns.com to see my latest creations.
I wholeheartedly believe that everyone is creative. Being creative is more than just being able to draw, it's a mindset and looks different for everyone. I design my workshops to spark creative interest for all participants regardless of how creative they deem themselves to be.
I look forward to meeting you and supporting your art making journey.
