Creating Decorative Papers

April 13 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

$45 – $60

No painting skills required for this fun and fast-paced class. Using recycled and inexpensive materials, we will scrape and layer paint, paper, marker, and crayons to create one-of-a-kind decorative papers to use in collage, greeting cards, notebooks, and ornaments. You will leave with a generous collection of decorative papers and plenty of ideas about how to use and keep growing your stash.
