Printmaking/Collages with Marion Gardyne

A series of FREE workshops with Marion Gardyne, a visual artist with a keen interest in printmaking, collages, architecture and historical sites.

These workshops will explore the symbols and heritage of the Paisley Co-operative & Manufacturing Society. Participants will learn how to make prints using symbols, motifs, and artefacts made famous by the Co-op movement.

Participants will be given instructions on print and pattern making and also explore the history of the Co-op movement. Participants work will contribute to a group show within a small thematic exhibition.


Marion Gardyne

A textile design graduate from DJCA Dundee, I am a practicing artist member, exhibitor, and award winner of The Paisley Art Institute, member of The Glasgow Society of Women Artists, and am a judge for the Glasgow Institute of Architects Annual Design Competition.

I have a particular interest in architecture and am exhibiting for Doors Open Days 2021 at The Arlington Baths Glasgow with a montage, drawings, and collages of Glasgow ‘s iconic doors. As a retired teacher, I have presented workshops for Luminate Scotland at The Gallery of Modern Art and presented CPD workshops for colleagues for Glasgow Museums Education Department and Glasgow Life.

I was invited to exhibit in the ‘Lines of Thought’ exhibition at the Lighthouse, celebrating the life of architect, Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson. I enjoy working in different mediums and like to experiment and combine a variety of materials to produce themed dynamic collage work. I also use photography to make collages highlighting architectural features of iconic buildings.
