  • Collage Camp – 1 day (16 September 2020); and
  • Bento Box – 3 day (17 -19 September 2020).

Seth's workshops will be held at Hutt Art, 9-11 Myrtle St, Lower Hutt. 

50 Ways to Leave your Layer - 15 September 2020

Work through a series of paint layering techniques that you can apply to all your creative projects.  Additive and subtractive paint techniques, properties of acrylic paint, mark making.  You will leave with a journal that you can keep as a technique reference manual or that you can continue to work on to complete the journal pages in your own personal style.


Collage Camp - 16 September 2020

A series of creative exercises that illustrate the principles of collage.  Create abstract backgrounds as the base for your collages.  Transform bits and pieces of paper into a cohesive whole.  Basic and advanced collage techniques will be reviewed and approaches to collage discussed.

Bento Box - 17-19 September 2020

Hungry for creativity?  Build your own Bento Box filled with art in this jam-packed workshop.  You will be making a series of projects, small in size but big in impact, that will each nest inside its own container – think tins, boxes, bags, etc.  Each of these will in turn be placed and housed inside one larger box, creating a very special treasure chest.  Your unique art pieces will include some combination of handmade books, paintings, collages, assemblages, scrolls, wraps, shrines, and more. In the end, the process of opening and exploring the contents of the box becomes a magical part of the art.
