What you will do

Single session

If you love design and colour, you will love creating these beautiful and unique 3D effects on paper.

This class will take you through various methods and techniques for creating your own decorative paste paper. We'll start by taking some inspiration from historical and modern examples of paste papers, and then use different materials and recipes to come up with our own versions. We'll use tools and found objects to test shapes and patterns, and combine them to make unique finished pieces.

This is such a versatile technique for decorating paper. Final uses include for bookbinding, paper craft, scrapbooking, art work, I've even used it before to decorate huge sheets of wrapping paper! This is a super satisfying craft that is also easy to carry on at home.
