How the Words Find Me: Cut-up Poetry as Collaboration

“Creating Found-Word Art” 10 a.m. -12:30 p.m.

Sign up online at our Facebook Event or contact Muskoka Arts and Crafts for information and registration at (705) 645-5501

In this workshop, participants will experience the playfulness, freedom, and meditative quality of letting words find them, creating one or more ‘cut-up poetry’ collages and leaving with suggestions and inspiration for further exploration.

Participants will learn strategies and processes for creating found-word art by harvesting phrases from newspapers and magazines and then pairing them with paper that delights them, images that catch their fancy or natural treasures like leaves or stones. No experience is necessary to take part. In fact, this is the perfect workshop for people who enjoy words and/or art, but don’t feel artistically inclined.
