Open Studio with Collage Collage

CAG is delighted to continue our year-long partnership with Collage Collage with a series of art-making videos for families inspired by contemporary art practices and CAG’s current exhibitions. Videos will be released on our website and social media platforms on the third Saturday of the month from August to November.

Pattern Puppets

For our third remote Open Studio with Erin Boniferro of Collage Collage, Erin leads us through a puppet making activity inspired by Julian Yi-Jong Hou’s multisensory Grass Drama. From pattern to music to performance, Julian’s work brings together multiple elements to create connections between unlikely things and ideas.

Watch the video and follow along as Erin creates a puppet out of paper and cardboard. She’ll share tips and tricks for creating your own unique, layered patterns with wax crayons and watercolour paints.
