Yesterday Juliet and went to a school holiday workshop at the Bendigo art gallery. We have done a workshop each holidays since we moved up here, and have thoroughly enjoyed them all. They run for an hour or so and cost virtually nothing. It's also wonderful getting to work while surrounded by old paintings in a beautiful old building. We are very lucky where we live.
Yesterday's workshop involved making tissue paper flowers and a bird and attaching them to a branch.
Here are some photos of our creation and the workshop.
So I thought today, I'd make a flower, and show you how it is done.
Step 1 - Put 4 to 6 layers of tissue paper on top of on another.
Step 2 - Fan fold the paper
Step 3 - Tie a string around the middle of your fan fold
Step 5 - Spread out the fans.
