WINTER CYCLING COLLAGE PRE-EVENT | 6TH – 10TH FEBRUARY 2021
Ro-Nalt Schrauwen – Visual Artist

We are excited to invite you for the Winter Cycling Collage Event, a pre-event to the Winter Cycling Congress. The event is hosted by Ro-Nalt Schrauwen, visual artist form the Netherlands - bicycle-heaven on earth.

At the WCC 2017 in Montreal he had a collage-exhibition with Winter Cycling as theme. He had fun making them and he was happy to sell some of his collage at that WCC.

This year he takes the opportunity to give a creative collage workshop, so all of us can join the fun!

Description: Everybody can make collage. You don’t have to be an artist to do so. It’s fun, hilarious, contemplative, zen, creative, out of the box. In this creative workshop you are to make one or more collages with the theme: (winter)cycling. And then share it with each other.

The things you need are:

  1. At least one magazine, preferably more, with bicycles in them. Or download the images from the link that Ro-Nalt provides and print them;
  2. A pair of scissors or scalpel and cutting mat;
  3. A glue stick, the cheapest one you can find;
  4. Some fresh blank papers to glue your collage on. You can also use a page from a magazine as background;
  5. A Facebook account to request to login to this group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/458081285237304
