Join Award Winning Environmental artist James Owen Thomas in this Sunday workshop!

Taking inspiration from James’s work, and nature, you will create your own environmentally conscious collage using materials such as magazines, old tickets, leaflets, and used packaging.

Tutor: James Owen Thomas

James Owen Thomas is an artist who highlights issues about the environment and single use products. He turns things discarded by others into a medium for expression. The starting point of this whole process is to collect and organise into a manageable form all the many pieces of recycled materials he works with. He enjoys creating order out of disorder!

Over recent years he has mainly worked with scratch cards, old tickets, leaflets, product packaging and fabrics which can be recycled into commissioned art pieces inspired by nature. He tries to inspire people to re-use and recycle, aiming to create to a more environmentally-friendly future.
