Origmai: My name is Brenda Lilly, a resident of Conway for 18 years, and an origami artist for over 22 years. Throughout my artistic ventures I have combined handmade papers into my art, either by folding the papers or using them as a backdrop for my pieces. This workshop will focus on boxes, and simple birds, and or fish. One box in particular is the Brochure Box, yes it uses brochures from museums or events. The more colorful they are with less words the better. If you do come across some collect 8 of them for one box. I will be bringing some along too. I can also accommodate special interests if people want to learn something specific fold, such as the popular peace crane. E-mail request at least a few days ahead of time to:

Simple Gifts:  Handmade paper wallets, star books and simple books/cards.  Fold, print and stamp colors and messages into paper.  Personal items you'll want to keep close for years to come, bring joy to yourself and others, holiday ideas become beautiful sturdy paper items that feel like leather. Join us for a day of fun with fiber. Sheryl Jaffe
