Updated Simple Gifts Workshop on Saturday, December 14, 2013

Join us for another Holiday workshop to make Simple Gifts from paper taught by Brenda Lilly and Sheryl Jaffe.  You can visit last year's workshop here

This season we will continue with our butterfly theme and make paper butterflies taught by Brenda Lilly who studied with origami master, Michael LaFosse in his   studio here in Massachusetts, Origamido. Michael is among the foremost Origami artists in the world. 

Sheryl will expand our repertoire of folders and checkbook folders or wallets made from her beautiful fiber papers. See her message below:
"I could bring some paper and stuff to make different size templates, even teach template making for custom-sizing covers for calendars, tun books, checkbooks, or ??? Also, people are always interested in momigami, the crumpled paper, I could bring some papers, maybe you have some too that we could coat with konnyaku, which makes the paper very flexible and you get that crumpled paper* but strong cloth-like."
Here's an image of  a laptop computer bag made from paper cloth!
