Papier-Mache for Grown-Ups with Meg Kaczyk
Thursday, November 2, 2017
In this class series, you will learn how to use the simple craft of paper mache to make useful and beautiful vessels. It’s playtime for grown ups. In this hands on experience, you will make your creations using common objects such as bowls, cups and plates as forms. Then you’ll successively layer the form with newspaper strips and simple flour-and-water paste to build a rustic, sturdy vessel. To finish the pieces, we’ll look at pattern design from nature, history and different cultures to inspire your painted surface decorations. You’ll use bright colors and shapes painted with water based liquid acrylic to make your vessels friendly and inviting. In this class, you will learn how to make the most of the beautiful flexibility of this art form. And they make wonderful gifts.
Beginners are welcome and all materials are provided.
