UPDATE: Unfortunately, this workshop has been cancelled. Please consider signing up for my Paper + Petals flower-wrapping workshop on May 12th.
I love this wreath project because (a) it's really easy to make and looks fabulous, and (b) it uses two of my favourite papers, Japanese watermark tissue (a durable, lacy, fabric-like paper) and chiyogami (a silkscreened paper available in hundreds of stunning patterns). The bonus for me this time is that the workshop is presented by the Harbourfront Centre, where I spent many, many hours as a child, skating on their pond, watching live music and generally just hanging about. Many fond memories.
But enough about me. Here are 5 reasons why you should come to the Spring Wreath Workshop:
- It's a fun day of crafting!
- The wreath is very, very easy to make — suitable for beginner and advanced crafters alike.
- You'll get to play with gorgeous papers (really, really gorgeous papers).
- The wreath makes a great handmade Mother's Day gift.
- You'll want to make more: Once you learn how to make this tissue wreath, you'll want to make lots of them, as gifts, to try different colours and to decorate your own home. (You'll be sent home with instructions for easy referral.) One of the students from my last wreath workshop is making a whole bunch of them in white as decorations for her wedding.
