The Midwest Collage Society (MCS), founded in 2003, promotes collage as a fine art by providing exhibit opportunities and professional development activities to our 52 members.
Meetings are held at 1710 Plainfield Road, Darien IL, usually the first Sunday of the month from 12:30-2:30pm. No meetings in January and July unless otherwise posted.
Midwest Collage Society celebrates over 100 years of Collage As a Fine Art since 1912.
Some of the members are doing a doll exchange or a doll round robin kind of event...every once in a while we get a glimpse of them as they are passed to the next person.
Sylvia's paper...it's is just beautiful
Laura's work table...it's a mess...but she was having fun.
Here are a few of the members waiting their turn and taking notes on the process of making batik papers. as you can see in Maureen's hand she is holding a tool that melts the wax as you draw on the paper...later on after color is added with acrylics/ink you melt the wax off with iron and paper towels.
Tania our past president is making her greeting cards everyone always wants to buy at her work.. got to get the stock up again..running low, new year and new holiday's people will need cards for.
