Playing With Paper

Enrolling now


Playing with Paper is all about playful, creative ways to get crafty with your memory keeping projects! In this class, we're going on a treasure hunt for fun ideas and inspiration that spark our curiosity. We'll turn that spark into a variety of fun projects that include stitching and sewing on paper,  transparencies and vellum, envelopes and pockets, creative cut-outs,  interactive flaps and pull-tabs, and going BIG! This class is for people of all skill levels. Our goal is simply to have fun telling our stories, and to make projects that bring you joy! I hope you'll come out and play!
