Online: Assemblage Boxes: Memories, Collections, and Expressions

During this hands on workshop participants will explore assemblage boxes as a  way of combining similar or seemingly unrelated objects to express ideas, display  collections, or memorialize people or events. They will look at the work of  assemblage artists, such as Joseph Cornell, and consider such elements as  shape, texture, color, material, text, and repetition, and will utilize these design  elements in the creation of their own pieces. No previous art, craft, or  assemblage experience is necessary. Participants are encouraged to gather  found objects, ephemera, collections of small objects, and personal mementos  that they may like to include in their art. Also any boxes, tins, or other containers.
