Explore Your Creativity
Look out for upcoming workshops. Workshops can be organised for groups on request.
Visitors to Assemblage can also request group workshops or retreats in advance.
Make your home your story.
Make your home your story by discovering what you love and creating it, or recreating it. At Assemblage we delight in beautiful and unique pieces. We also delight in creating them, often from upcycling objects we already own, such as pots, plates, art works, fabric, frames, lamps and furniture. Using mixed media design, we can show you how to reinvent drab or dated objects to become designer features in your home that are unique to you. You will also be more thoughtful about disposing of your possessions to buy new, when you can transform what you have into one of a kind ‘originals’.
Finding a voice.
Finding a voice through creative expression can enhance life choices vital to optimize physical and mental health and well-being, independence, cognitive capacity and resilience.
Our aim is to inspire innovative artistic approaches to traditional making pursuits, transforming them into art forms where the process becomes a journey of awareness and self-discovery for every individual. In these workshops, applying modes of inquiry to art making will explore the possibilities of self-expression, identity and growth. The interactive structure of the workshops will provide participants with the tools to access and build on their own personal attributes.
What is your medium?
At Assemblage we offer art workshops in printing, painting, mosaic, textiles and mixed media. Workshops are offered onsite and at local artist’s specialty studios. There is great value in acquiring practical creative skills to produce works, but we also encourage you to use these skills expressively in modes of art making that are unique and original to you. At Assemblage, we believe the process of art exploration and experimentation is both the journey and the outcome.
Not Junk is the Assemblage resource room for creativity, where we visualise the potential in materials and objects for art and design making.
