Botanical Origami – Flowers in a vase

Date and Time:
Date(s) - Wednesday, January 16th, 2013
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Learn how to fold decorative paper into a lovely floral arrangement. No previous paper-folding experience required.origami iris

Brighten up your winter decor by making a bouquet of colorful paper flowers and a folded paper vase to arrange them in.  The handmade Asian papers (available locally if you want to do this again at home) turn into surprisingly lifelike blossoms after just a few simple folds.  Using small variations in the placement of the folds lets you make blossoms of many shapes.

Stimulate your mind by learning a new skill with individualized instruction from paper artist, Rich Gray in this one-day workshop.  Students should bring small, sharp-pointed scissors (such as embroidery scissors) and a ruler – all other supplies included in fee. (.25 CEU credit hours)

Pre-registration required
