About This Workshop

A great time to start thinking about Christmas before the madness hits us!

In this class you'll learn how to cut, curl, fold and manipulate old books and paper into beautiful Christmas ornaments, for your tree, Christmas table, or as sweet little gifts.

This is a fun class that will have you amazed at how versatile paper can be as a creative material, and will leave you with the skills to continue re-using and recycling paper to make your own wonderful paper art at home. You'll also take home a number of pieces that you work on during the class.
