Learn all about the ‘readymade’ to transform ordinary and discarded materials and objects to create your artworks. Incorporate simple construction techniques to reimagine these materials and objects for a new aesthetic or functional purpose. Get creative with materials, meet new people and problem-solve to design new images and objects!

Tailored for high school students, this workshop will use imagery from discarded books and magazines to create new collages and handmade book.

This collage and bookmaking workshop seeks to build your understanding of how and why images and artworks are made. Learn how to repurpose images from discarded magazines and books to create new artworks and narratives. By exploring shape, colour, repetition, text and line in artworks, learn how to construct, deconstruct and analyse the elements that make images interesting, unique and effective. This program is designed for students who are interested in learning how to think creatively about composition in artworks to produce a small series of images or books in the process.

The National Art School is one of the leading visual arts tertiary institutions in Australia. Within the grounds of the historic Darlinghurst Gaol, you’re invited to access the world of art and design through a series of practical art making workshops.
