Fodder School December: Making collage fodder with Aimee Bishop

Making collage fodder with Aimee Bishop

In the December class of Fodder School we made a lot of grungy collage fodder with Aimee Bishop. She taught us loads of ways of creating art papers using mark making, stamping and resist techniques.

I love her techniques, they are simple but very fulfilling. We made our own stencils and stamps from everyday household things like sponges and such.

She also taught us dyeing fabrics in an easy way, with rust and spices. The results are phenomenal. I like these natural colors.

I didn’t have the exact ingredients Aimee used, so I changed things up a bit.

I have enjoyed these lessons so much, I can’t wait to see what we are going to make with all that fodder.
