Collage Workshop at MVPL

You could hear a pin drop in the community room at the Mount Vernon Public Library. Everyone was working on their collage with so much concentration that the usual banter amongst the collagers was absent. Bark from a tree, fabric and sports magazines lay next to each other waiting for someone to claim them for their collage. Two boxes overflowed with collaging materials I collected over the past few weeks around my home and from friends. Felt, sponge, a puffy pipe cleaner, a piece of yarn and images from a magazine were collaged together to make a person with a goatee wearing a red scarf (photo above). From so many different pieces comes one great idea!
