Paper Flower Making, May 7

Taking inspiration from the Botanicals of Joey Kirkpatrick and Flora C. Mace: Every Soil Bears Not Everything, join us for an afternoon of paper flower making! It's a fun and gratifying craft, and from such simple materials - just paper, tape, and wire - you can create the most beautiful blooms! During the session, you'll learn how to create several styles of crepe paper flowers and foliage using traditional crepe, duplex (double-sided) crepe, and European crepe paper. You'll leave with some knowledge and a lovely paper bouquet in hand! Learn more.
