Learn the basics of paper mache while making fun, small scale sculptures in this two-day workshop. On Saturday, you will build armatures (several small ones) using a variety of materials and paper mache them with flour paste and newspaper. After allowing your work to dry overnight, you’ll return on Sunday to paint and embellish. You can come with some ideas, or get inspired during class. Paper mache is a fun and relaxed art form that encourages a non-perfectionist approach. All materials provided. NOTE: This is a two-day class held on Sat., May 12, 10am-2pm, and Sun., May 13, 10am-1pm.
NOTE ALSO: There was a typo in our printed catalog. The cost is $75, not $45.

Bind books with sewing machine stitching. Paper, fabric, we’ll try anything. We’ll make single signature books, we’ll bind signatures into bigger books, and we’ll add hard covers. Great for journals, memory books, swatch books and even books for children. Materials and sewing machines provided but feel free to bring fabric or paper. All levels.
