Information

Create collages using layered found imagery, your own illustrations and 35mm slides to create a visual poem to project in the space. This Dream and Make workshop is inspired by the current exhibitions and explores themes around memories and imagined narratives.

These monthly activity sessions are led by artists and take place in the Spike Island Café. Visitors of all ages and abilities can try out new techniques and approaches to making art, from drawing and painting to collage, sculpture and animation and are invited to drop in any time during the session. Dream and Make is led by artist Laura Phillimore.
