This weekend I took part in a Collage workshop at the Haus der Familie in Bonn.  The workshop leader was Rose Kretzschmar, a local artist.  I had previously taken a workshop with her called Intuitiv Zeichnen (Drawing intuitively) a couple of years ago and had enjoyed her open and experimental approach to drawing.  The workshop this weekend was in the same spirit.  I have not really tried collage beyond using partial images, which I then extend through drawing.  I have included an example of this below.
