WHAT WE DO
Collage Collage is an art studio and store founded by Erin Boniferro in 2009. Over the years the shop has hosted classes and parties for both children and adults alike. While in-person classes have yet to resume, a growing number of digital classes have allowed more and more children from across Canada and the world to join in on the fun.
The shop also makes custom Art Kits, for kids 3-10yrs old. This growing collection is all designed and assembled in store, offering a wonderful take home experience.
Collage Collage is a place that strives to uphold the tremendous creative abilities that children have, in surroundings that adults find equally stimulating, provoking and above all, inspiring.
The Story of Collage Collage
Collage Collage was Erin Boniferro’s long running idea to create a space for everyone to get creative in. After working in galleries, museums and artist run centres, Erin wanted to create a space that could always be about making something great. Collage Collage is a workshop, store, and studio that does just that. Children, adults and everyone in between will find an invitation to get creative at Collage Collage through a growing collection of art materials, books, and workshops.
We’re pretty excited about our growing collection of books and art supplies, and we’re thrilled that all of those selections are now available through our online store.
