What we’ll do

Chose to make a human figure or a cat or dog. Play with my examples a little. We will then create decorated paper (painting, collaging, even fusing fabric to some heavyweight paper base) from which we will cut our pieces. Each piece must then be folded, rolled, or otherwise shaped and glued together. When we have to wait for things to dry, we can tour the house and or enjoy refreshments and books…
